A former art teacher who gave up her career to launch a cake-making business has come up with a fresh idea to beat baking mess.

Imogen Davison, 41, grew fed up of being coated with a dusting of icing sugar every time she turned on her electric mixer while making cakes for her business, Sugar Buttons.

So she created a mixer guard, and after contracting a manufacturer in Hong Kong to produce her baking accessory, has 500 to sell.

Mrs Davison, who has two children and a step-daughter, ploughed her savings into the product, but said it had transformed her business.

'I have sold quite a few on my website and the feedback has been really good,' said Mrs Davison, of Pelham Road, Norwich.

Now she is searching for shops and online retailers to stock the product.

She added: 'People have been posting on Instagram. Once they have it, they can't live without out it.'
