For 7 years I have worked in the wedding cake industry and 3 years as an entrepreneur. I started as a cashier and coffee barista at my local bakery, got noticed for my artistic talent and was asked to do cakes. As soon as I picked up that spatula, my life changed. As for schooling, I never went to pastry school nor did I take any classes in fondant or gum paste (even now I can't afford all that money in classes!). My only work experience in gum paste is making roses and basic drop flower cake decorations. Everything else you see in my shop is a result of reading books and taking apart real flowers and developing a technique. After I left the bakery, I started Sweet Petal Flowers to showcase a broader spectrum of gum paste and fondant work.
I enjoy making these flowers as I enjoy making wedding cakes. If you want me to make anything custom for you, it would be my pleasure!…
