Barbara Hoogendoorn – the Mouldshop

When I was younger, my mother would let me have her kitchen and oven on Saturdays. I loved experimenting with ingredients and baked a lot of cakes, cookies and other sweet stuff. When I left home the baking habit kind of faded away. Until our fist son was born 12 weeks prematurely and when he turned one we threw a big party to celebrate his life! We ordered a huge cake with 5 layers from one of the best bakers in our city. It was delicious but it looked nothing like I had imagined… And that’s when I started baking again. Only this time I also started to decorate my creations. 
Where I used to work as a project leader on labour

cases I started my own cake business within a year ,which has grown into the Mouldshop because it turned out that I just love moulds! Nowadays I only bake cake for friends and family and I’m one of the designers for MjamTaart! magazine in the Netherlands which features 6 times a year.

I’ve been married to my sweet husband for almost 15 years now. Our first son turns 10 very soon (and he’s doing very well!). We have a younger son who’s 5 years old and a little surprise is on the way who will be born in August 2016!

Barbara’s Facebook page is – the Mouldshop.

Pennie Revell – Lady P’s Cupcakery
I’m a mum to 3 crazy kiddies  – oh and a house wife.  I just suddenly started taking an interest in cupcakes a few years ago and since then my passion has grown – along with lots of equipment! 😉 Which is shocking as I don’t think I’m particularly creative! 
I prefer doing cupcakes … I think! I don’t know, maybe I’ll get the big cake bug and start loving them!!! 
Cupcakes or big cakes, the whole “cake world” is addictive – very addictive!!! But its also a lovely place where I’ve made friends for life – over discussing the merits of this fondant over that one,  or who is more handsome Mr Ross Poldark or Daniel Craig! Caking has brought me some firm friends, a new talent I didn’t know I had and who knows, maybe I’ll have the confidence one day to stop baking for fun and start a business.

My Facebook page is Lady P’s Cupcakery!

Here is some of Pennie’s amazing work!

Sarah Harris – The Cupcake Range

I have a passion for baking which I have had since being a child, but more recently I enjoy mostly decorating cupcakes. A few years back I went on a basic cupcake decorating course and I loved it so much I have continued with it ever since.
It is a hobby, I bake only for family and friends, often as a surprise gift to commemorate an occasion such as a birthday, Christmas, Mother’s Day or baby arrival. My family are strong believers in celebrating each birthday with a cake and I have never missed out myself in receiving a birthday cake each year. I have made a birthday cake for my Mum pretty much every year since I was a child and she is now in her 70s! 

I have two sons, one now has a place of his own some distance away from our home, but I still made sure he got a homemade birthday cake last year which I sent him through the post! During the day I work as an Audit Manager in local government. I have worked for the same organisation since the year I got married which was in 1988.

Last year due to encouragement from friends I set up a Facebook page and called it The Cupcake Range.

Here are some of our favourite designs by Sarah!
