A BEVERLEY woman who specialises in designing and baking cakes with a wow factor for weddings and other special occasions is celebrating after being named Wedding Cake Designer of the Year in a national competition.

Grace Hunt (pictured right), who opened her shop, Grace Eva Cakes in North Bar Without three years ago, was crowned national champion in the prestigious Wedding Industry Awards in London.

Grace, of Molescroft, who is a former teaching assistant, said her love for cake decorating started when she offered to make a cake for a friend’s daughter. She continued: “The moment I saw the little girl’s face on receiving her cake I knew this feeling of happiness was something I wanted to spread further. This was the catalyst; I began making cakes as a hobby for friends and family and I’ve never looked back.”

POLICE and Crime Commissioner Jonathan Evison is asking the public for their views on how offenders who commit less serious crimes should make amends to society through Community Remedies. 

Community Remedy is aimed primarily at first time offenders who accept responsibility for anti-social behaviour and offences such as criminal damage and some thefts. It is an alternative to going to Court and receiving a criminal conviction whilst making amends to the victim of their behaviour. More information here
