Whisk & Drizzle
Hi Everyone! For December, we are featuring Whisk and Drizzle.
Tell us about yourself.
I’m Marianna, originally from Cyprus, living in London for the past 10 years. 28 years young 😉 I am a neuroscientist who decided research was not for me, so I decided to follow my cake decorating passion. Here I am – running Whisk & Drizzle, my little cake baby.
How did you start making cakes?
I always baked – my grandmother was a chef and baker so I grew up with flour, sugar, and chocolate as my toys. I trained as a chef at Le Cordon Bleu London in 2013 and after that, I started baking for cafes in Central London. In 2017, I decided it was time to set up my own little business – Whisk & Drizzle.
Do you have a favorite buttercream? (American, Swiss Meringue & other)
Swiss meringue buttercream, for sure. Although, I do a lot of vegan cakes where I use Vegan American buttercream.
Do you have any favorite tools in your cake toolkit?
Nothing out of the ordinary 🙂
- A turntable
- Edge scraper
- Little palette knife.
- Candy thermometer
Do you have any advice for someone who is starting out in the cake business?
I would say be prepared for long hours, late nights and no free weekends. If you love what you do then it’s worth it but this is not for the faint-hearted. Believe in yourself and be strong 🙂
