Marta Nilsson, Head of Bespoke of The Hummingbird Bakery, commented: "Being Head decorator is a sweet blend of creativity and craftsmanship where I get to sculpt dreams into reality and transform simple ingredients into edible art. My favourite part of my role at The Hummingbird Bakery is that I get to embrace the challenge of experimenting with new techniques, styles, designs and always seeking to create cakes that leave a lasting impression on every taste bud and heart they touch.

I am especially excited about our newest launch of the Zodiac collection and Woodland creatures. The Zodiac collection tells the cosmic stories of the stars while the woodland creature cakes bring the charm of nature and whimsy into edible form. And let's not forget how much FUN I had being elbow deep in frosting and covered in gold paint while creating these!"
