LYANDA ALDER . AWARD WINNING CAKE ARTIST
My wonderful 'caking' journey began six years ago with my first decorated cake,
an overly ambitious three tier cake for my daughter's birthday...it was a success (or at least so I thought at the time) but more importantly it ignited a passion for all things cake and a yearning to learn more about the amazing world of creative cake decorating.
I am a wife, mother and grandmother to my wonderful family who have whole heartedly supported me through the highlights and many frustrations of my 'caking' journey. Building Sugarboo Sweet Stuff and expanding it's clientele, constantly learning and creating new ideas, challenging myself...it's all about the cake and the smiles they create!
A very important part of the Sugarboo journey is competing in International cake competions. It inspires, challenges and keeps me pushing to develop new ideas and techniques.
In 2019 I won two Bronze awards at Cake International in the 'celebration cake' and 'sculpted cake' categories.
Then in 2021, my entry into the 'Celebration Cake' category won Gold and 1st place in the class.
In addition three further entries won two silvers and a Merit award.
I am proud to say that Sugarboo continues to grow and expand, and look forward to creating many more extroadinary cakes. After many years in the fashion, retail and design industry, I can honestly say that the world of creative cakes is where I want to be...
