A+ Cake Students

Check out the success of a few people who have taken our cake classes. It's so great they took what they learned and are practicing it on their own! If you've taken one of our classes, keep the pics coming! We love to see your creations and watch you progress.

Cheers to Cake Decorating!


Crystal made her little boy Whitaker's 2nd Birthday cake. After only one Level 1 class, she pulled off a 3-tiered cake! And from the look of Whitaker's picture, it didn't taste too bad either.

The theme of the event was a "Puppy Paw-ty in the Park" with doggy bowls for eating out of, puppy tail hats, Puppy Chow for snacking, and doggy bags full of goodies to take home. Also, the guests were encouraged to bring their pooches for playing in the park.


These two girls were feeling creative one day here at the "SweetLand" studio. They decided to make a purse cake and Sydney was very clear that she wanted it to be triangular.

I think they made a great team and the purse turned out super chic.

DIANNE HAMMER (aka "Mom"), Amarillo TX

She actually took our Level 1 class in Brooklyn, but has also had lots of good Hands-on experience helping me out in times of need! The bow she's working on however, I cannot take credit for teaching her. I was very impressed! This cake she did for a Baby Shower.

Sweet Sugar 'Sistas'

"this cake is Da-lish-iss!"
My sweet sisters, Emily and Aubrey came to visit this week with my Step-Mom Luain (who is equally sweet). The entire week was full of exciting New York adventures, but one of the most memorable by far was our day in the cake studio!
We spent a whole day baking and creating.
The end result? A fabulous Panda Bear cake named Penelope.
I promised these girls they would be hired as soon as they're old enough to work!
I SOOO loved having them here - Here's to you my SWEET SUGAR SISTAS. I love you!!!

We did some desserts for a catering event this week.
MANGO was the theme of the evening--one of my most favorite things--So we had fun making cubes of Orange-Vanilla Creme Brulee with Mango Coulis and
Dark Chocolate Truffles
with a Mango Cream Filling topped with bits of dried Mango and Curry powder.

Mango is a fabulous ingredient. I'd like to see this as the star in an Iron Chef battle.
Anyway, Enjoy! OH Also check out our upcoming classes and sign up for one today!!!!
