Daniella is the CEO of the successful Buttercréme Lane, a custom cake shop which counts P&O Cruises, football clubs, major corporations, celebrity chefs and US actors among its clients. Daniella also appears regularly on Studio10. Daniella dropped out of high school at 16 due to severe dyslexia and went on to open her business, learning recipes by ear and watching tutorials online. During a period of significant instability in her home life, Daniella was taken in and supported by her neighbours, who also adopted a daughter from China, who is a little sister to Daniella. Daniella credits her surrogate family as providing her with a stable and loving home that changed her life.
