A Madora Bay cake decorator has baked her way to gold at various shows around the state.

Anna Comper cleaned up awards at both the Waroona Show and Perth Royal Show, but this year she also claimed accolades in photography and crochet competitions.

Ms Comper said after years of just entering culinary delights, she decided to try something new.

At the Perth Royal Show she not only won top prize in the master section to beat all other WA cake makers, but she also won gold in another section.  

Ms Comper said she was stoked to take home two gold medals and the title of exhibitor to gain most points in the Decorated Cakes Open/Masters category. 

At the Waroona Show she claimed top honours in the Open Cake category and two in another category.

While at the show she also won two second prizes for photography and two first prizes for crochet. 

A great achievement considering Ms Comper only got into photography three weeks prior to the show. 

Ms Comper said she had purchased a nice camera a while ago but never got around to understanding how to use it correctly.  

“I always liked photography,” she said. 

Ms Comper said she enlisted help from a friend, who taught her how to use her camera and handy techniques to capturing the best shot. 

She said it was exciting to try something new and expand her skills. 

“I just like trying something new,” she said. 

After moving to the area six years ago, Ms Comper has sought out shows to exhibit her finest works at. 

Since winning accolades at the Perth Royal Show in 2012, Ms Comper has entered and won an award every year.

“I haven’t missed a show since 2012. Even when I was pregnant or was travelling abroad around that time,” she said. 

Originally from the Czech Republic, Ms Comper hasn’t always decorated cakes as she spent the majority of her life as a pastry chief, including a 10-year stint in London.

When she moved to Western Australia, Ms Comper said it was impossible to find work, so she changed her profession and picked up a new skill. 

Ms Comper said she believed she could learn any skill if she put her mind to it.
