Mich Turner has made wedding cakes for Paul McCartney, Madonna, Pierce Brosnan and many others. But she didn't consider herself a cake maker when she got her first commission at age 17: To decorate the wedding cake of her home ec teacher.

She eventually turned that opportunity into the Little Venice Cake Company, now one of the biggest names for top-tier wedding cakes in England and around the world.

We're giving away Mich Turner's new book "The Art of The Cake," which shows you the techniques behind the desserts that can easily cost five figures. We're also interviewing her, so if you have questions about cake making or building your business into an international brand, drop them in the comments or enter them into the form on CraftFoxes' Facebook page.

For more about her experience starting a business, how to make a sugar paste rose and the rules of the giveaway, see below.

What does is take to be the entrepreneur behind a successful business? Mich Turner explains that it's about confidence, focus and more. Also hear about how she's dealt with the unreliable wedding market of the last few years.
