Welcome To Baking By The Sea

Lisa Parkinson - Cake and Chocolate Artist

Lisa Parkinson is a 3D Cake & Chocolate Artist, Tutor/Demonstrator, Cake Article writer, amateur Food Historian and very much a Maverick Baker. She currently lives and works on the atmospheric Romney Marsh, Kent.

Before jumping into the Culinary World, she worked in Quality Compliance for many years – hardly relevant it seems except her attention to detail combined with her background in Art and passion for baking seemed an unexpected evolution initially but one that clearly works!

Baking for a living is the realisation of a child-hood dream – something that has driven her to use her artistic skills more broadly. In doing so she undoubtedly challenges the status-quo of cake design.

Her Cake Studio is based on the beach and a National Bird Reserve where surrounded by Nature, she takes much of her inspiration from it. Her surroundings help to create her unique and individual Cake forms and her Trade-Mark style… that not only can be admired but also consumed!

A natural born artist involved in many mediums including Sculpture, Lisa has a wealth of knowledge gleaned through art which she now successfully relays into Cake.

Totally self-taught and proud of her achievements, Lisa is happy to be a source of inspiration to other would-be bakers.
