Rhianydd Webb set up Dragons and Daffodils Cakes in July 1999.  A home-based business with the lovely Pantygraigwen Community Centre for classes, based near Pontypridd in Wales.

Rhianydd started off by learning her trade through books, which were her only source of knowledge and inspiration.  Amongst the key artists that she learned from are Alan Dunn, Tombi Peck, The International Sugarcraft Books, Debbie Brown, Lindy Smith  to name just a few.  Since then, I have been very lucky to be able to study Intermediate Cake Decoration and Beginners sugar flowers under the very talented Janet Side and received Distinction for both. I have also attended day courses with Alan Dunn, John Costello, Carlos Lischetti, Mary Presicci and Kim Wiltjer.
