Meet Our Baker: John
This week we had the pleasure of speaking with John, one of our brilliant bakers here at myBaker! John’s baking career started later in life. Never having baked as a child, he took it up as a hobby just a few years ago, after following the challenges on The Great British Bake Off. He very quickly realised that he had a talent for baking and an eye for creative detail!
During the day, John works in finance for RADA, then by night he spends his evening as a conductor and a composer, working with many local music festivals and composer groups! In between this already manic schedule, he spends his free time in the kitchen baking and cake decorating! Sleep? No, he doesn’t seem to need it!
Despite his hectic schedule every day, John goes out of his way to finish every cake to perfection and deliver in pristine condition (even if it means delivering a cake on foot in the snow). What keeps him going? “The pleasure it gives seeing your cake being enjoyed, knowing that you’ve used the best ingredients to create something that will be remembered”.
Always keen to learn new skills from the very best and improve as an all-round baker, John has attended several cake workshops on baking and cake decorating hosted by well-known bakers including Bake Off winners, Jo Wheatley, Frances Quinn and John Whaite, master patissier Eric Lanlard, chocolatier Paul A. Young and professional baker Mich Turner, MBE.
John has created some stunning masterpieces in his baking repertoire. From pug face cupcakes to fresh floral drip cakes to 3 tier wedding cakes!
