MY  STORY

Three years ago I began creating 3D sugar flowers in orchids after a class I took online. This mushroomed into a lot of classes, a lot of flowers, and a need for someplace to go with those amazing flowers.  I have been adamant that the cake equal in taste and quality to the beauty of the flowers I create and a love triangle began between cake, flowers, and myself. I am able to work with any medium, creating art quality designs in dessert.  Those skills also include isolmalt, hot sugar, spun sugar, chocolate, and raised sugar structures as well as all kinds of sugar flowers! 

______________________________

 

Sugar flowers alone, and sugar art alone are available through custom design commissions and I'm happy to discuss any and all of your entertainments plans with regards to sugar art whether for dessert, decorative items, or both!

Brides Treasure

Brides Treasure

Tasked to match the colors and style of the brides dress, I brought in peonies, leaves, berries, a fantasy flower in the style of stephanotis, edible lace, and piped buttercream vanilla bean roses. All of these elements adorn a champagne cake filled with more vanilla bean cream cheese icing!

Demitasse of Fern

Demitasse of Fern

Sugar fashioned into a demitasse style cup and saucer are ornamented with an overlay of fronds of fern. A flower perched on lip of cup serves as a dainty ornamental cup handle! Precious on a cake as a topper or as an ornamental addition to a sweets display filled with candies or tiny sugar flowers!

Gingerbread Christmas Muffins

Gingerbread Christmas Muffins

Gingerbread Muffins are lovely year around but especially during the holiday season. The warmth of the combined spices chase away the cold and wrap the palette and the heart in a flannel blanket of memories of special times. Secret recipe. These muffins have a moist perfect crumb topped with a bit of sanding sugar for a light crunch on top. Not a sugary muffin...but full of an elegant blend of spices. No nuts in these...but can be added if you wish. Also a sugar glaze may be added on request!

Alabaster Blown Sugar Fruit

Alabaster Blown Sugar Fruit

I love working with hot sugar called Isomalt. Many different techniques may be employed to create sugar art in this medium. I've blown a pear fruit in an alabaster mixed white and clear sugar, added leaves, and created a piece of sugar art that may be used on top of a cake, at the side as an ornamental accent, or combined with other pieces to create a table centerpiece for a special occasion. I love creating this type of art in sugar and welcome commissions to design in this free form style.
