At Sugar & Ice we pride ourselves on bringing together the best cake decorators in Leicestershire so that we are able to make amazing cakes each and every day, you can meet our wonderful team here.
I got into cake decorating when my siblings were small and I wanted to surprise them with a homemade cake (it was a football pitch with green coconut grass, chocolate finger fencing, and borrowed Subbuteo men – now you know how old they are!!). When I created my first commissioned cake I disliked it so much that I kept hiding it at the venue, I was 13 and it was a christening cake, I’m pleased to say that I’ve improved greatly since then and we all have to start somewhere!
I really like a mix between classic styles and the quirky novelty cakes its great seeing people’s faces when they come into collect something we’ve made.
As I receive all the trade catalogues first, I get very excited about the new products on the market and get frustrated when we can’t get them in quick enough. I know we have some fantastic ranges coming in soon such as new candles and a variety of flavourings.
I love making the sugar models and the novelty cakes. But I really love being able to work in a store with so many lovely customers and a great team which means it hardly feels like work at all!
When our children were young, I would make sugar cookies for them, which then grew into a love for all things made from sugar!
I love all wedding cakes, it's the romance surrounding them
