I'm a sugar artist. I make caricature figurines and cake toppers from modelling chocolate, gumpaste and fondant. I also make 3D novelty cakes. My caricature figurines are hand-sculpted and hand-painted without the use of moulds so every figurine is fully customised, unique and individual. No two figurines are alike.
