Welcome to my blog

May Clee-CadmanHello, my name is May Clee-Cadman. I am a cake designer and I manage my own wedding cake company based in London. In my blog you will find recipes, baking tips and creative ideas, as well as many gift ideas and personal recommendations. If you’d like to know a little more about me then please read on….

I grew up in an old rambling house in the Cotswold’s and since childhood I have loved baking and cake decorating. On a summer’s day you would find me in the garden making mud pies topped with primroses and trying to find my own formula for crystallizing rose petals. When I was old enough I moved from the garden to the kitchen, baking Victoria sponges in our old Rayburn. I became official baker for all family events and most days after school I would whisk up a new recipe.

I headed off to university where I studied ‘Art and Design History’ and along the way I flirted with the music industry. I sang backing vocals for Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and generally I had a lot of fun, eventually marrying a musician! But the music world wasn’t as flowery and pink as I’d have liked it to be and I was continually drawn back to the cake kitchen. I decided to start my own cake company and I earned extra money by working for the Queen at Buckingham Palace. In 2003 I established Maisie Fantaisie.

I’ve come a long way since my childhood days in the garden and almost like a fairy tale my mud pies have been transformed into beautiful wedding cakes.  Maisie Fantaisie has appeared in ‘You and Your Wedding’, ‘Brides’ magazine, ‘Wedding’ magazine, ‘Cosmo Bride’ and ‘The Sunday Times’ and also on the BBC, Channel four and ITV. I have had two books published and I supply some of the most prestigious venues in London and the UK.

    Sorry to bother you but I have a quick question. Which is the best book to get with the Maisie recipes in or do both books have different recipes in?

    Many thanks
