My Name is Claire, I am an Chief Financial Officer (Accountant) by day however food is my true passion, and I am obsessed with all things baking, cooking and produce! Entirely self-taught with no formal training foodie-ness runs in the family with my Mum, Nana and many of my Aunties (there is seven on Mum’s side!) being prize bakers and cooks. Not to mention my fabulous sister who has been in the hospitality industry for over 20 years, most recently running her own restaurant in Auckland, NZ. As a result I have had plenty of experience over the years helping out in several family ventures.
For many years there was no gathering with family/friends/work colleagues that didn’t involve my Cupcakes, and in 2011 I established Lush Cupcakes after being asked many times when I was going to turn my love of baking into a business (mainly so friends and family could place orders!!).
Lush now produces handmade baked goods made from scratch for all occasions, who doesn’t love homemade cake!? Since 2012 Lush has also supplied a number of select cafes (in Perth) with a range of cakes, cupcakes, cookies and slices. However, since moving to Tassie now focuses on custom orders for special occasions.
