Preparing and making food has always been an essential part of my life. I have many wonderful memories growing up in beautiful Poland, where food is made with love, from scratch. It’s rooted in the culture, and meal preparation is also a social time for many households, where stories are shared with closed ones while making dumplings, stirring great pot of Hunters Stew or making compotes, jams and other preserves for a winter season. To this day I miss it dearly. So food is part of my soul, and sweet food is, where I find comfort.

In my early twenties I moved to Wales to study criminology and languages, but I soon realised I was climbing a ladder to nowhere, and my passion for the food of my childhood is stronger than ever, so I lost myself in cooking. I mean, literally, my escape from boring degree and troubles, was always the kitchen…  I was determined to polish my skills and work hard on new techniques. I have applied for many chefs roles, starting from the very bottom. After one or two massive steps in my career I found myself running a pastry section in one of the very few Michelin Star Welsh restaurants- Ynyshir run by truly amazing Head Chef.

After moving to Bristol, I started making cakes for friends and family. It took me a while to realise what I want in life, and trust me it didn’t come easily to me. I had an opportunity to make a wedding cake for a friend and it was a undescribed joy that it delivered, not just for me but also the bride and the groom that got me thinking. It’s not a job, it’s a passion, a safe haven. It’s an opportunity to me to finally be who I am; someone who delights in creating beautiful things inspired by all the splendour and diversity of nature and being certain it will be an integral part of a very special day. 

Now, after moving to beautiful Yorkshire, we are ready for new challenges. 



The best cakes ever! They taste as good as they look like...and yes, they look like a masterpiece. Joanna is super friendly and she always goes above and beyond to deliver the best possible results. Strongly recommend.
