I'm an East London Cake designer who specialises in the art of storytelling through my cute and furry mini monster cakes!
I use cakes as a medium to tell stories and give the illusion of life as seen in my recent collection "my inner monsters" where I design cute little cakes that illustrate my quiet negative emotions. I also love my travel series with Choky's Cakes where they go to Mexico, Milan, and more!
I run themed workshops regularly as I find baking extremely therapeutic and want to share the same experience with all of you.
