As a child Tanya was a passionate home-baker and in 2012 realised her dream and set up The Cuppa Cakery, baking cupcakes from her small home kitchen in the centre of Bristol. Such was her early success she then turned her design talents to wedding cakes.
Tanya has trained with the award winning cake designer Peggy Porschen, and the renowned French patissier Eric Lanyard. She also draws upon her BA Hons Degree in Art and Education to help her design the bespoke wedding cakes for her clients.
Tanya lives in the countryside just outside Bristol with her husband Richard and their young son Walter.
