Julia Thomas established the award-winning free-from bakery, Cake Angels, after being diagnosed with breast cancer during pregnancy. Being a lifelong baker and cake lover, Julia was determined to still enjoy delicious cakes while following nutritional advice to remove diary from her diet. As she began to recover, she also began to experiment. Her cakes were such a success that she was soon asked to bake wheat-, gluten- and diary-free cakes for friends and family. A year of research and testing later and Cake Angels was born. It now delivers great-tasting cakes nationwide through www.cakeangels.co.uk. Julia lives in Hereford with her husband and son, Charlie. She continues to bake every cake in her home kitchen.
