Hi, I’m Alex. I am 27 years old and I have Down's syndrome. I’ve always enjoyed baking cake slices and cupcakes, but my favourite part is decorating them. I live in Australia and I have been run my own cake business – Mr Alexander’s Sweet Eats. My cake teacher Karen helps me make and decorate cookies, cupcakes and cakes for my customers. The best part of decorating cakes is seeing people’s faces when I give the finished cake to them. They are always surprised at what I can do. I am very proud of my cakes so far and I love a challenge to try new things; especially when I get to attend classes with amazing teachers from all over the world. When I take my salted caramel slices to a class, the teachers don’t want to share them with the other students! I like using Katy Sue moulds because they make it easy for me to add fun details to my cakes with less help from my teacher.
