Talented Lynne Glass | Cake Artist, creates beautiful wedding and celebration cakes and crafts exquisite sugar flowers and fondant figurines.
Lynne baked her first cake in 2009. There were no bakers available to bake a last minute cake for her daughter’s first birthday so she decided to make one herself. She learned two things that day; one, baking a cake is not easy and two, despite a lop-sided attempt, baking is something she thoroughly enjoyed. Over the next few years her passion for baking grew and the birthday cakes got better and bolder and when people started asking her to make cakes for them, she knew it was time to convert her hobby into a career.
So, in 2014 Lynne left the corporate world and joined Charly’s Bakery in Cape Town where she soon developed a remarkable talent for creating fondant figurines and sculpted custom cakes. Five years later Lynne ventured out on her own, started her baking business and settled in Riebeek Valley to concentrate her finely honed skills on creating bespoke wedding cakes and teaching online courses.
Lynne specialises in high-end wedding cakes ranging from large multi-tier statements to more subtle single tier cakes. She has mastered crafting fondant sugar flowers, everything from simple succulents to delicate peony roses, her attention to detail and realism is unwavering and sets her style apart.
Whether it’s decadent chocolate mousse, intricate red velvet, traditional fruit or basic vanilla sponge, whatever design, style and flavour cake you can possibly imagine, Lynne will bake brilliantly and deliciously.
