A few years ago I discovered a photo sharing site, Flickr. It was there I discovered some of the most talented people on the planet… artists whose medium is sugar! I spent hundreds of hours pouring over photos from ladies like, Kylie, Sharnel (her blog), Keren, Naomi (her blog), Haniela (her blog), Kathryn (her blog), Maryann, Callye (her blog), Johnna and many others. I studied their work, e-mailed a few questions, and spent lots of money on sugar, flour and butter, working on making treats inspired in part by my new mentors.
This blog has given me the privilege of sharing some of the ideas and techniques that I’ve learned over the years, and many that I am still learning! And I feel greatly humbled to be someone who can now offer a bit of inspiration to other sugar artists.
Recently a few of my readers have sent in photos of their sweet treats, inspired in part by things I’ve done. I wanted to share their beautiful work!
This perfectly sweet dessert table (above) is from Kate in Perth, Western Australia (inspired by my Sweet Strawberry Party).
Top left– The patriotic layered Jello cup is from one of my readers, Katherine (inspired by mine HERE).
Top right– The fun hamburger cupcakes and cookie “fries” are from my friend Amy, in El Dorado Hills, California (inspired by THESE). I love the addition of the flags, which have special Father’s Day messages.
Bottom left– The utterly delicious looking chocolate cupcakes (with princess rings!) are from Samantha, in West Virginia (using my Chocolate Cream Cheese frosting recipe).
