Life’s travels have taken me from one side of the globe to the other, from one hemisphere to the next. Having studied Hospitality Management in Dubai, I was fortunate enough to gain knowledge, experience and exposure in hotels such as the only 7 star hotel worldwide: The Burj Al Arab, as well as The Jumeirah Beach Hotel, and The Emirates Towers.
Through my studies, I was fortunate enough to have been chosen as leader on many fronts and this gave me the confidence and will to pursue my diversified interests. After my adventures in the UAE, it was off to the United States of America, and whilst studying Visual Arts, I was privileged to be appointed Head Chef and Co-ordinator for dinner parties for the Consul General of South Africa to the USA .
A new chapter began during my recent stay in Sᾶo Paulo, Brazil. I was afforded the opportunity to explore and hone my flair for baking. At the beginning of 2012, I took my passion one step further, and started my very own Cake Art Business. This has been a short intro into the life of Sumaiya Omar, The Cake Duchess. I look forward to my continued adventures with you by my side.
