by Sharon Wee Ask me anything is a series of posts where I answer any questions you may have about me. Cake decorating related or not 🙂  I’m planning on making a fondant cake but I dont want to bake the cake itself. This is because I’m planning on making a cake for my son’s baptism […] Read more…

Ask Me Anything – Post 2

by Sharon Wee I usually have issues with my fondant mixture when the weather is dry, it cracks. What can I do to stop that? I don’t know how you are storing your fondant but make sure it is double wrapped in cling wrap and then a plastic bag. If you want to be extra […] Read more…

In the Same Shoes

by Sharon WeeThey said you can never truly understand what someone is going through until you are in the same shoes. I’ve always sympathised with students and other cake decorators who struggle with climate issues when it comes to cake decorating.

Falling in Love with Wedding Cakes

by Sharon Wee When I first started decorating, I was always really cautious about making wedding cakes. The thought of dealing with demanding bridezillas and the fact that the cake is for one of the biggest days in someone’s life really intimidated me. I had more fun making novelty cakes. Cakes that don’t look like […] Read more…

Teddy Bear Inspired Wedding

by Sharon Wee Last week, my cousin came over for a private Mad Hatter class. She was holding a dinner for everyone to thank them for their help and support during her wedding and wanted to present the cake as a thank you gift. She created everything herself – all the flowers, the figurine and […] Read more…

More than ‘just cake’

by Sharon Wee My heart always breaks a little when someone says ‘it’s just cake’ when referring to what I do. I know what is under the sugar works of art is deliciously moist cake, but it is what’s on top that I am the most passionate about. This week I made a cake for […] Read more…

Happy Birthday to Meeee :D

by Sharon Wee It was my birthday last Friday and it was a little sad because it didn’t feel so ‘magical’ anymore. I had a fantastic day (as much as you can have at work!) and the celebrations continued into the weekend with some wonderful presents and people. The boyfriend took me to Becasse and […] Read more…
