Karen Taylor began baking and cake decorating at an early age by helping to make the family Christmas cake every year. A few years later, interest in her designs snowballed and she started taking commissions to make cakes for friends and family.
In 2004 Karen became a mother and decided to leave her full-time job to raise her son. She continued to make cakes from home and set up her successful business ‘Cakes by Karen’ not long after, creating bespoke wedding and celebration cakes from her home in Worcester.
Karen has won numerous gold, silver and bronze awards in various competitions, including at Salon Culinaire, and has achieved NCFE levels 1, 2 and 3 in Cake Decorating from Birmingham College of Food.
She is a regular contributor to Cakes & Sugarcraft magazine as well as Wedding Cakes: A Design Source. Karen is also the author of Quick Cakes for Busy Mums.
