Laura Grix

Norwich-born Laura has been teaching in the best cookery schools in London and we’re delighted to welcome her home. At 14, Laura was working at the Norwich Cake Craft Centre…she ended up managing it! Laura studied art, design and photography focusing on sculpture and also brings these talents to the cake table!

She has studied chocolate at Callebaut in Belgium and worked at The Little Venice Cake Company, Artisan du Chocolate and Claridge’s. Her teaching accolades include the world-renowned Fair Cake in Greenwich and Rosalind Miller Cakes and she has trained bakers and cake makers for Harrods, Fortnum & Mason and Selfridges.

Our favourite Laura Grix fact: aged nine, she appeared in the Eastern Daily Press’s ‘When I Grow Up’ series. What did she want to be? A cake maker, of course!
