Hi, I’m Sarah Lou Smith, bespoke cake designer and tutor at Sensational Sugar Art based in the Staffordshire Moorlands in the UK. It is a huge honor to become a tutorial contributor for SugarEd Productions, especially as it was the first online cake school I joined many years ago. I do hope that you will enjoy my tutorials.
My love of baking started when I was really young. I can remember standing on a chair at my Nan's house, cracking eggs into a bowl and weighing out flour which I could hardly lift off the table. I’ve continued to love baking, but I didn’t ice my first cake until about five years ago for my husbands birthday. From that point I completely fell in love with cake decorating and sugar art.
Within my business I make everything from celebration cakes, very unusual realm cakes, animal themed cakes, as well as high end bespoke wedding cakes, hand sculpted figures and larger edible sculptures. I also teach students at my studio, guest teach at other cake schools, and regularly write tutorials for a UK based cake magazine. I absolutely love every aspect of my work and I do hope that my tutorials inspire you on your own cake journey.
