Annika’s passion for the kitchen started in the home economics classroom at the tender age of 16. This passion lead to her being chosen to represent her school at the ‘Safefood  All Ireland Young Chef of the Year’ competition back in 2012. Annika clinched the title as the leading Irish Chef Nevan Maguire was won over by her flair in the kitchen.

In 2012, Annika launched her now Multi-Award-Winning business ‘Cakes by Annika’.

Annika’s business has grown from strength to strength and she has made a name for herself in the wedding industry as well as being renowned for her creative celebration cakes.

In 2016 Annika signed with Impress Live who have been responsible for developing her business throughout the UK and Ireland.

Annika travels widely demonstrating her skills with her highly sought-after masterclasses and is set to release her first book in summer of 2018.

Annika uses local ingredients and is proudly sponsored by Dale Farm and Neill’s Flour.
