Tell me about yourself. How long have you been decorating? How did you learn to decorate? Do you decorate professionally? Have you taught any cake decorating classes? Have you competed in any competitions?
I’m a Cake designer and a mum of two. I set up my business SUGAR FANCIES in 2015 from my home in New Delhi, India. It has almost been four years since I started my venture.
My cakes are renowned for their elegance and intricate designs with flair craftsmanship.

Also, have had published few tutorials in Cake Decorating Magazines and American Cake Decorating blogs.

Tell me about your design.
My inspiration for Couture Cakers Collaboration 2020 is an Instanbul Wedding dress in Red and Maroon. Bridal dresses are just as important and special as the big wedding day itself. Hijab is mostly common in muslim countries. It is used mainly to cover one’s head and hair.
It has delicate gotta Patti embroidery in Gold. I used small cutout of fondant and paint them all over with gold luster dust. It took me around 3-4 days to replicate the delicate embroidery.
Hope you all like it.
