Claire Heydenrych, of Patisserie Claire, is a trained pastry chef with a passion for baking and cake decorating.

Claire trained at Capsicum Culinary Studios and completed her Diploma in Patisserie with distinctions in both her local and international City & Guilds exams. She was also awarded Graduate of the Year in 2008. In 2012, Claire went back to Capsicum and completed their extensive programme in Chocolate Art and Confectionary.

After working from home for many years, Claire finally realised her dream of having a little bakery, which is continuing to grow from strength to strength. Her main focus is on children’s birthday cakes in bright colours and designs but also offers cakes for other occasions, including weddings.

Claire likes to work with quality ingredients and only offers products of a very high standard. This has earned her business a very loyal customer base, customers who have been coming back year after year for their baking needs.

Come on, give her cakes a try, you won’t be disappointed!
