About Leigh Smith

My love of baking and decorating cakes started at an early age.  No cake was complete without buttercream piping, throwing 'hundreds and thousands' everywhere and chocolate buttons. So much has changed since those days!

In 2008, I bought a second-hand cake decorating book and challenged myself to make a 'bouquet of roses' cake for my mum's 70th birthday.  Since then I've been hooked -  going on courses, baking and decorating cakes for friends and family and turning my hobby into a business in 2015 - 'Leigh Smith Cakes', based in Glenfarg, Perthshire. 

In 2016 I was very proud to receive a Certificate of Excellence from Melanie Andrews, the founder of the Scottish Baking Awards.

Who inspires me? Paul Bradford, a celebrated Scottish sugarcraft instructor, and Zoë Clark, who makes the most stunning and elegant wedding cakes and who has published several books.
