Our Team

Claire Stephens


PME Qualified

Experience Cake Baker and Decorator


I started making cakes when my eldest son was little because I wanted to make my childrens birthday cakes.  My interest grew and I completed my PME Masters Certificate in Sugarcraft.  

I was fortunate to get a job at Confection Perfection as the Shop Manager, where I could share my knowledge and learn from the customers as they produced new and beautiful cakes.

I can't wait to welcome you to The Unique Cake Company and help you with your cake projects.

Lucy Tedham

Professional Cake Baker, Decorator and Course Co-ordinator


I started out my passion for baking and cake decorating as a hobby about ten years ago.  I decided to turn my hobby into a career when I was made redundant and achieved my PME Masters Certificate in Sugarcraft while volunteering in a local bakery to gain in house experience.

I have spent over a year working at the Annabelle Jane Cake School doing all the course baking and preparation.  I have also continued to bake and decorate cakes at Lucy-Ann's Cake Corner.

I am now continuing my cake journey at The Unique Cake Company.

Barbara Thirkell

Professional Cake Baker, Decorator and Course Tutor
I have worked for many years as an art colourist, hand colouringing prints for the artist Grahm Clarke. I also ran a successful craft stall with a friend making and selling "Pixie Pot People". I have taken these skills and now apply them to running my own small cake company. I was a self-taught hobby cake maker until I discovered the wonders of cake decorating classes. Having got the bug I took the three PME diplomas and achieved my Masters Certificate in Cake Decorating and Sugarcraft.  I was lucky to be offered a job at Confection Perfection where I became an accredited PME Diploma Tutor along with teaching and designing varied courses.  I love all aspects of working with cake and sugar, from baking to sugar flowers, designing to modelling (my special favourite!) and I get a huge amount of pleasure from teaching these skills to my students.
