A Bit About Sally
My name is Sally Davis. For as long as I can remember I have loved to bake and decorate cakes so when I left school I decided to study patisserie and cake decorating at bakery college for three years. After finishing college I set up and ran a successful bakery and tea rooms with my family in Woodstock. Some years later I decided to branch out and set up The Cake Shop in the Covered Market Oxford with a view to concentrate on cake decorating. The business went from strength to strength and soon I opened a second branch in Banbury and moved to larger premises in Oxford.
I am proud of my achievements at The Cake Shop and over the years made cakes for thousands of people with many of them coming back year after year. We even had a visit from HRH The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall. My speciality lies in themed cakes that incorporate three-dimensional modelling of people, vehicles and animals as well as novelty shaped cakes. I am also an accomplished baker and love to pass on my knowledge to budding young chefs.
