About the Author
Nicholas Lodge was born in Essex, near London, England, and became interested in cookery and cake decorating at an early age. Nicholas can remember designing his first cake at the early age of ten for his parents wedding anniversary. On leaving school, Nicholas worked in a bakery as a cake decorator to gain practical experience and commercial speed in decorating. He was then offered a position at The National Bakery School of England, located in London where he completed a two year course in cake decorating and design. After gaining distinctions in all his assignments and examinations, he received the award for the most outstanding cake decorating student.
Nicholas was commissioned to do one of the official wedding cakes for wedding of Lady Diana and Prince Charles. This Royal wedding cake was also reproduced by Nicholas in Japan for the official visit of the Prince and Princes of Wales. He was also commissioned to create a cake for the Queen Mother's 80th birthday and the Christening cake for Prince Harry.
Today Nicholas is one of the top instructors in the current generation of sugarcraft artists. He is the author of over a dozen books and he teaches and demonstrates his unique skills around the world.
