About the Author
RAMLA KHAN is an accomplished cake designer, owner of London-based wedding cake company The Enchanting Cake Company. While growing up, Ramla's life revolved around good food and decadent desserts. Naturally, she found a passion for creating glorious new treats-much to the delight of her family. This passion eventually led to her winning a place in Britain's top five young dessert designers at the age of 16. Ramla decided to put her passion on hold while she followed her academic ambitions and graduated in Dentistry from a top London university. While pursuing her career in dentistry, her passion re-ignited, and Ramla decided to take up cake decorating as a part-time hobby. The cakes were so admired by everyone, that Ramla soon started receiving commissions for her work and eventually had to choose between her two careers. Ramla officially set up her business, and in just a short space of time, received numerous awards and recognition for her work, featuring in national publications including Hello magazine and Delicious magazine. Today, she takes her inspiration from the latest fashions and trends, but keeps true to her natural style, incorporating a unique blend of simple yet classy elegance.
