Potters Cake Boutique was created by Lisa Potter approximately 7 years ago; working extended hours in central London I decided to go to evening classes as an escape from work. The class I chose was sugarcraft and I've never looked back......... I'd never made or decorated cakes previously and I unveiled a hidden talent that I love with a passion ! I've always had an artistic flair and a keen eye for detail and being a true perfectionist cake decorating allows me put all of these attributes to good use.
I am registered with Bromley Environmental Health, Food Safety team and my premises have been inspected. I have a "score on the door" certificate of 5 stars.
I am also a proud member of the British Sugarcraft Guild and I am currently Chairman of the Orpington Branch.
Lisa Potter of Potters Cake Boutique entered her 1st cake competition at the Cake International Exhibition which took place 12th-14th April 2013. Lisa entered two classes The Decorated Battenburg and the Novelty Cake class.
Lisa is very proud to announce that she won awards for both entries !
A Bronze and 2nd place in the Battenburg class and a Certificate of Merit in the Novelty class.
I entered my 2nd cake competition on 18th May2013, the competition was at the BSG Region 8 Exhibition in Brighton. I entered 2 classes; the any edible medium cake top and the charity cake class. The charity cake is judged by the public and all donations go to the cake with the most votes.
I got a silver and I was thrilled ! Sadly my charity cake didn't win over the public ..... but it helped raise awareness for the charity and I got a certificate for coming 2nd place. My first year of competing and I've received awards for all entries....
I entered the celebration cake class at the Cake International Exhibition again during April 2014 and was thrilled to pick up a Silver Medal. My cake design was based on the paper craft of quilling; instead of paper I used thin ribbons of icing to create the design of a love heart tree. The cake was to celebrate a 5th wedding anniversary which is traditionally celebrated by a gift of wood, hence the tree. Sadly I haven't found the time to compete since 2014 but I hope to do so in the future.
