Part of the Festival of Making, 14-16 June in Blackburn. In association with Creative Lancashire.

Wayne Hemingway MBE in conversation with Zainab Bilal (Pie Mezzane) and Molly Robbins (Molly’s Creative Cakes)

What does it take to start a food business from your home kitchen table? That’s exactly what Zainab Bilal is doing. This dynamic entrepreneur is now at the forefront of a domestic manufacturing revolution in Blackburn, Lancashire.

Molly Robbins launched Molly’s Creative Cakes from a studio in her Rossendale home. She started making cakes by accident while studying Special Effects Makeup after watching US cake shows and the Great British Bake Off. Molly went on to star on Chanel 4’s Extreme Cake Makers, establishing a national following and multiple awards for her extraordinary creations on the way.

Hosted by Wayne Hemingway MBE, the conversation with these remarkable women will provide an insight into their respective journeys and the values that underpin their enterprise and a global movement of change.
