Hi! I'm Deborah Roberts and I'm the Diva Deb part of Diva Deb's Cakes! I have been singing since I was at school, playing lead roles with local operatic societies and performing with a full symphony orchestra for a number of years at Lichfield Proms. So really there was never going to be any other name for my business was there!!
Seven days before Christmas 2011, I found myself unemployed under sad circumstances, when my boss, aged only 48, passed away. Not the best Christmas and start to a New Year I've ever had! I had to do something to pay the bills and fast! Time to use one of my skills!
I am entirely self taught and have been decorating cakes for family and friends for over twenty years and would probably have made a tidy penny, if I was given a pound for everyone who has asked me whether I take orders?! The answer was always a very quick response - a resounding and enthusiastic 'No!!' I just didn't have the time! Look at my photos - some of them took hours and hours of painstaking intensive work!! I just couldn't justify decorating cakes in my 'spare' time! But now - needs must - and Diva Deb's Cakes is born!
