Kate Clarkson17

Kate is the co-owner and creative designer at YORK Cookery School. She also runs YORKCakes, a wedding cake design specialist company based here at the YORK Cookery School.

With a background in art & design, Kate started YORKCakes in 2009 specialising in bespoke cake design.

After many years working in the financial services industry and just moonlighting as a cake maker, she took the plunge and set up the business, initially working from home.

Having completed courses in both sugarcraft and sugar flowers, the remainder of Kate's skills are self-taught, demonstrating that, with the right approach, elemental teaching and lots of practice, almost anyone can find a way to decorate a cake beautifully!

Whilst Kate is still dedicated to creating beautiful cakes that surpass expectation, her role at the School has become more involved and she now indulges her love of fresh, local ingredients and cooking by teaching many different classes at the School. In addtion to all things 'cake', Kate also teaches French macarons, young chef classes and, along with chef tutor, Fiona McBeath, runs many of our events for corporate team-building and parties.
