Hello, I am Lucie and I simply love cake.
I have always loved baking since I was a little girl with my Mum or Grandparents however back then my main interest was licking the bowl at the end!
I discovered my true love for cake decorating and sugar craft when my world turned upside down and I was unwell for sometime. I wanted to explore new creative hobbies to keep myself busy so started to learn how to create sugar flowers from books and online tutorials. It didn't take long until I became addicted to the art and my hobby blossomed into my business today 'Lucie Loves to Bake'.
When not baking, decorating or eating cake I love adventures and camping with my fiancée Matt. I am a huge nature lover and enjoy learning about wildlife, bird watching and going on woodland walks.
The New Forest and Dorset countryside are my very favourite places to be and I am always scribbling ideas to use as inspiration in my work. I also enjoy drawing children's illustrations based on woodland animals and setting up my trail camera in my garden which I have a adorable badger (and occasional fox) visit nightly.
I also love animals great and small, I believe that in a world where you can be anything, be kind.
I used to love looking through my Gran's cake decorating book!
