My name is Gemma and I am the Owner of White Peony Cake Company.

I am a fully qualified patisserie chef, and have been creating cakes for all occasions for the past 9 years. 

I started my cake dream working as an assistant in a popular cake shop based in Newquay, which then lead me onto completing my chef and patisserie qualifications at St Austell College.

During my patisserie career, I have spent time working for Rick Stein, as well as undergoing courses and training with the likes of 'Peboryon', 'Couture Wedding Cakes by Sweetcheeks Ltd' and 'Emily Hankins'.

Baking has always been a passion of mine and now I get to do all day every day! My absolute favourite thing to do is to make sugar flowers. There's nothing better than creating something that makes people question whether it's real or not.

Everything I create is made to perfection in my little kitchen in Cornwall, using only the finest ingredients. Freshly made curds, local Free Range Eggs and always real Cornish butter!
