Karen’s love and experimentation in the culinary art started at a very early age, enjoying cooking with her dad is one of her earliest memories. It was however in 2006, after starting a family that, Sweet Secrets became a reality. After enrolling and passing a couple of classes, which included a Wilton course, she realised that she wanted to turn her passion into her career. She soon ventured into the art of baking and making cakes for some friends and family, which quickly turned into a successful business.
Since then her life has been one big adventure as one cake, quickly turned into another and soon, Sweet Secrets was a fully functional cake making business specialising in celebration cakes for any age. Although she has to admit that saying “No” is her greatest flaw, she wouldn’t change her career no matter how difficult it gets at times, because she absolutely loves what she does.
Since starting, Karen has made many long standing customers, who have travelled this journey with her and are still customers to this day, but sharing in some of their greatest memories and special moments with them is one of the greatest things about her career.
When she isn’t busy baking up a storm, Karen loves spending time with her family. She is a true creative soul, generous to a fault, with a real love of people and cakes...of course!
