I have been baking for as long as I can remember, and for several years now, my passion for making cakes and creating sugar flowers has become more than just a hobby. Friends started asking me to make a cake for a special occasion – a child’s birthday, a family wedding, or a special anniversary and, after having received fabulous reviews, I decided to turn this much-loved hobby into a business.
Choosing a business name was easy – my favourite flower has always been the rose, and when I realised that I could create this exquisite flower in sugar, and that it actually appeared real, my mind was made up – it had to be ‘Sugar Rose’.
Making sugar flowers and creating bespoke cakes is a unique skill which requires not only time and effort, but considerable attention to detail. As such, I treat every commission as an individual project. I spend hours researching, experimenting, and trialling flavours and designs until I am completely happy with the final result.
It is so often the case that a cake may look amazing, and then when it is cut, the texture is dry, and the flavour is disappointing. My mission with every cake is to ensure that it is full of flavour, the design is unique, and that it will be delivered as fresh as can be.
