Work is a piece of cake for Irette

Leaving behind the rat race of corporate life has been a piece of cake for Cambourne woman Irette Murray.

The 34-year-old has given up her job as a merchandise planner in the fashion industry in London to pursue her dream of running her own cake-making business.

She’s swapped 14-hour days and four hours of commuting for the world of cupcakes, chocolate squares and carrot cake in the kitchen of her home in Sweetentree Way.

Mrs Murray says her love of baking is in her blood. “My grandmother was always the big baker in our family and she taught me a lot,” she said.

“I grew up in a family where we did lots of cooking and lots of baking – it’s all part of our culture. I am Afrikaans and our culture is we are very social and we love entertaining. Baking is a big thing and something I grew up with.”

Mrs Murray has just launched a website for her luvcake business – www.luvcake.net – to showcase her range of cakes. Special occasion cakes are also available on request.

She hopes to eventually open a shop in Cambridge – that really would be the icing on the cake.
