About MonAnnie Cakes

Monannie Cakes was born out of a desire to make beautiful things.

I’ve always appreciated beauty. As a trained doctor, searching for- and creating- art had taken a back seat to the hustle and bustle of my career.

I’ve recently realised that life is too short to let any dreams die- and certainly not without trying your best first.

I’ve spent the last few years refining my skills with courses and home practice. Lots of positive feedback has encouraged me to share what I can do with the world.

I’d love to hear from you if you’d like a cake, or to chat about life. Maybe we can realise our dreams together!

    How much would you usually charge for a 4 teired wedding cake with different flavoured sponges and fillings and a novelty bride and groom?

      Hi faith! πŸ™‚

      It really depends on the flavours and the amount of decoration required. I will happily arrange a consultation to discuss further if you’d like.

      I’m sorry- my style of cake normally doesn’t involve toppers…

        Hello, maybe you can send me an email with rough numbers and example of different designs? πŸ™‚ im just looking around at the moment, but would be great to here more!

    Hi Mon Annie,

    I’m also a doctor, currently a registrar in renal medicine. I’ve always loved baking too and have contemplated many times to take a break from medicine to pursue that path. However, the job clearly has very limited scope for that and also due to other factors, I have not done it and now have started my registrar training.

    I wonder if you could share with me what you did and how you came to this path?

    Medicine to me is a job that I can do but certainly have not much passion for. I also feel like I am in a constant circle of work, exams, writing up papers upon papers, doing presentations for all sorts of reasons like journal clubs, grand rounds etc and I am not very interested in any of that at all!

    I hope to gather some insight into your thoughts back when you decided to leave medicine.

    Thank you so very much.

      Hey Rachel!

      Thank you for your interest. Renal reg- gosh. That’s really hard work- well done for getting a number!

      My journey into cake was not a straightforward one. I’d always been interested in baking… And like you put it on the back burner.

      It was illness that made me pick it up again and really pursue it. And I love it- it’s brilliant!

      What I do know now is that it is possible to take a career break at any point in your training to do absolutely anything.

      It’s never too late. Being happy is the most important thing you can do for yourself. Pursue that with all your heart!

      I’m happy to give more specific advice if you’d like- perhaps via email?
