Sugar Cakes is a boutique cake business nestled in the beautiful wine district of Durbanville, Cape Town. I am a solo artist and my business was established in 2010 where I specialize in beautiful wedding cakes with sugar flowers, figurines as well as different techniques, bas relief as well as painting and textures on cakes.

At my studio, which can accommodate seven students, with 7 spacious workstations, I present weekly classes and 1-10 day full day workshops. My 3 day workshop is especially popular with local and international students that not only want to learn more about decorating, but also want to explore the beauty that Cape Town and the surrounding areas have to offer.

During the years I have been in the cake decorating business I was fortunate to have my work published in at least 31 magazines and displayed at numerous exhibitions. I also collaborate with International Magazines as well as International Cake Collaborations, and have since featured in 7 different countries. I was also featured on SA DSTV Channel 137 Via, Media 24 during April 2016.

I had the opportunity to meet Buddy Valastro during 2015 where he judged a cake of mine in Cape Town....What a privilege to meet such an icon.

Passion, hard work, constant learning experimenting with new ideas and textures. I always challenge myself!

Hope you are just as passionate about your dream as I am because I love to admire the outstanding talent here on CakesDecor.
