She has taught at a variety of prestigious cooking and cake decorating schools, including Peggy Porschen Academy, The Bertinet Kitchen, Divertimenti, Fair Cake, Squires' Kitchen and Anna Cake Couture.

Marianne also works on specialist food styling projects, using her creative and expert decorating & baking skills to create stunning cake and sugarcraft projects for commercials, stills & online marketing campaigns.

She wrote her first baking book, Nourish Cakes, to share the kinds of recipes that nourish the body as well as the soul. Her cake recipes cater for people with various dietary restrictions, whether vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, using more nutrient-rich and healthy ingredients.
