Having gained a Visual Arts Degree at Camberwell school of Art, Katja undertook a 3 year apprenticeship at The Cupcake Cafe, New York. Under the watchful eye of Ann Warren, working alongside fine artists and patisserie chefs she created cakes for special events, celebrities and the discerning of Manhattan.


Since  returning to England Katja has learnt to bake and is proud to have achieved a Gold Star at the Great Taste Awards as well as a Northwest Fine Foods 'Heart of Excellence' Award, more recently a Silver Medal at The Cake International event.

Having now moved to Hastings she is excited by the opportunity to supply cakes to the discerning of London and the South East.


As an arts graduate, Katja loves the process of creating a cake, from design concept to production.

"It gives me great pleasure working with every client to produce wedding cakes, celebration cakes or cupcakes specifically for them".

Katja strives to ensure that the whole experience of a 'Katja's Cake' is a totally enjoyable one from first sight to the last crumb.
