We are always delighted to hear feedback on the Cake Decorating videos, but the message received 9th January 2012 totally took our breath away….
A message to Paul Bradford : Hi there, my names Maxine hill I’m a mum of four amazing boys, who mean the world to me. I just wanted to say a very big thankyou to paul who has inspired me to go into cake making. I have been an hairdresser/nails technician for a few years now up until my 13 year old boy Joshua was diagnosed with prostatic rhabdomyosarcoma (cancer of the prostate) in 2009. I couldn’t work as Joshua was in hospital for a whole 10 months having operation after operation and being really poorly with the treatment. Also in September Joshua was in intensive care fighting for his life with septicaemia. When we finally came home from hospital and I had a moment spare I was looking on the internet and for some reason your site came up. I went on it and was absolutely amazed at how breathtaking your beautiful cakes are, I have now registered on your site and get the tutorials on a monthly subscription. So I thought I would have a go at making the me to you bear, I have never done anything like this before and was amazed how it turned out. I put a picture up on my Facebook account and had lots of people asking me if I could make them one too. I am now in the process of setting up my own business and it’s all down to you. I have made a few other cakes and getting more orders in everyday. I am so thankful as everyday since Josh took poorly it’s been a traumatic day for us there’s been days I feel I can’t go on as I relive each day my son was poorly, and this has changed my life. Now I’m making cakes it’s taking my mind off what devastating 2 years we had and giving us something to look forward too. I just feel I should tell you this and to say thankyou so much. I continue to view your tutorials online everyday as I find them very relaxing to watch. Thankyou again. Yours truly Maxine x
