Sugar Nursery Cake Shop Amanda and Maddy decorating a wedding cake

Our little Sugar Nursery started when my daughter, Maddy, was only eight. She found one of my cake decorating books that I hadn’t touched in years and asked “can we make one of those pretty cakes?” 

Shortly after, an ad from a local craft store for cake decorating classes began a fulfilling journey into the land of sweets through course work, both locally and abroad, eventually leading us to teach hundreds of students and create custom cakes and sweets for weddings, milestone events, and charities.
