A pastry chef and cake decorator with a qualified teaching background, Marianne is passionate about introducing others to her craft. Marianne’s key areas of expertise are baking, recipe development and piping techniques, especially with buttercream.

My new book Nourish Cakes is out now. It offers 50 stunning recipes for cakes and bakes, both large and small, focusing on healthy ingredients such as nuts, vegetables and dried fruit. Many of the recipes are allergy- or intolerance-friendly, using wheat-free flours and unrefined sugars, and each recipe is clearly coded to show which dish will suit you.
