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

Maddy’s grandmother had started living with us after the sudden passing of my father, my career was all-consuming, and I had been divorced since my little one was two. Not much time to make pretty cakes back then! Her question stayed with me and, as I began to care for my mom, we came across an ad from a local craft store for cake decorating classes.

This was the start of what was to become 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 milestone events and charities. We immersed ourselves in our Sugar Nursery and affectionately created our own brand identity.

We have made many sweet friendships through our learning, teaching, and catering adventures for over a decade. The world of sweets has also introduced us to so many brilliant and talented local creatives and small businesses we feel so lucky to have collaborated with.

Our greatest joy comes from our clients and our community. The trust you place in us to help you create sweet memories fuels our creativity and warms our hearts. Thanks to you, we will keep learning, teaching, and creating wedding cakes and sweet tables as we continue our sweet adventures with the Sugar Nursery.
