Kerryn has been working on our parties for years and we just adore her!

Lucy Markewicz is the cake and foodie Queen. After recently closing her venue, catering and cake businesses during lockdown, Lucy’s love for all things food now sees her cooking, baking and experimenting in the kitchen, style and photographing delicious food, and making a select few of the most beautiful looking and tasting cakes. Lucy and I have worked together for years on events, parties, catering and she has made so many of our amazing birthday cakes!
