Catherine is married to the lovely Simon and is mum to George Deans - Full Of Beans (age 12), Izzy-Woo (age 10) and Henry The Munch (age 9). She was in creative marketing for a well-known technology company for many years and would be a size 10 if she didn't like cake so much.
She started developing her sugarcraft skills nearly 20 years ago and, since making her first fire engine cake, quickly became completely obsessed and, over the years, gradually progressed to making grand wedding cakes. She has qualified in countless sugarcraft areas and has gained her prestigious Master Certificate from PME. Her cakes have been displayed at shows as far afield as China and she has won many awards for her work including 'golds' and 'firsts'. Rather than entering, she now forms part of sugarcraft judging panels.
Catherine is known for staying up until the birds start tweeting when engrossed in a particularly tricky bit of piping. She loves making lists, singing and lots of medical programmes on the telly (she would have loved to have been a doctor) but hates pushy shop assistants and mustard. She can make one eyeball look round and round whilst keeping the other one still.
She thinks she's funny and is completely addicted to Facebook.
