Courses with Helen Mansey

Helen Mansey discovered her passion for cake decorating while she was taking some time off from her career as a professional chef to raise her young family. With a background in fashion design and cooking, her creative instincts fuelled the conception of her successful wedding cake business, Bellissimo Cakes, based in Hampshire.

Much of Helen’s work is inspired by the clean lines and sharp sugarpasted edges of Australian cake design and these features are now part of her signature style along with hand-piping, a skill she learnt from Eddie Spence MBE. Self-taught in the art of sugar flowers, Helen’s delicate skill in their construction means that intricately made sugar flowers regularly adorn her stunning wedding cake designs.

Helen has been awarded many accolades for her beautiful cakes over the years. In the Squires Kitchen 25th Wedding Anniversary Cake competition Helen was awarded Gold, and was invited to exhibit at The Cake & Bake Show 2012 to demonstrate her skills in piping lace pieces. Helen is a regular contributor to Wedding Cakes – A Design Source and her work is also often featured in many bridal magazines and blogs. In 2012 she was shortlisted in the Hitched Breakthrough Awards for Best New Wedding Cake Designer.
