Bouchra_SweetCreationsCakes_WATERMAKED

This cake was made by Bouchra Marir from Sweet Creations cakes in Paris, France.

Bouchra Marir lives in Paris, France. She works as an IT engineer and is a mum of four adorable kids. She had her first contact with cake decorating a few years ago when she wanted to make their birthday cake. She did not have any formal training or course in cake decorating. She is a self-taught artist and a great admirer of art and cake design.

Two years ago she decided to create a Facebook page Sweet Creations cakes, where she started to put some pictures of her cakes. Step by step, she participated in different events, including the first France cake designer championship, where she got a silver medal.

She says, “I was never expecting nor dreaming that someday I could create cakes at the level of those once only contemplated and admired. I love testing new technics, create, choose shapes and colors, apply materials and techniques. Each cake project is a real challenge. I also love making people happy by making cakes and figures, that encourages me to strive in achieving the my best potential. For me everything is allowed in cake design and Imagination has no limits.”

Her inspiration was the tree of hope. A day no child will be born with HIV. Zero transmission, zero death, zero discrimination.

This mother and child cake was made by Daniel Perez from Las tartas del cachorro in Murcia, Spain.

Daniel Perez was born in the southeast of Spain in 1984. He discovered the world of sugarcraft while he was looking for an original birthday gift. The first time he took some fondant with his hands, he realized it would not be the last time.

He says, “I had been outside the kitchen for all my life but that discovery of creating amazing cakes from scratch changed completely my world.”

“The Spanish collaboration ‘Spring fable’ was a turning point for myself. After that moment some new collaborations and teaching proposals arose. Nowadays I am developing these projects and, what is more important, I get maximum enjoyment. The ability to make people happier and develop all the creativity you have inside is something indescribable.”

“I don’t know what will happen in the future but I want to continue improving and learning more and, bit by bit, I would like to contribute with my small grain of sand in this creative sector.”

Bee Aware - Eman Abukoash Watermarked

Eman AbuKoash from Sugar Puffs Cakes in Manama, Bahrain made this cake.  

Eman Abukoash is a Jordanian cake artist/ instructor currently living in Bahrain. He started his cake decorating journey over 6 years ago. It started as a fun activity with his friend then quickly turned into a home business with the support of friends and family. After attending two master classes specializing in sculpted cakes, his cake journey took a great turn. He became less hesitant to try different styles and just unleash his inner creativity with confidence.

He states, “There is always something new to learn in the cake world and that’s what makes it interesting! I am now so passionate about cake decorating and want to help shed the light on this kind of edible art and show it to the world.”

Naomi 1 watermarked

Eman AbuKoash from Sugar Puffs Cakes in Manama, Bahrain teamed up with Marta Godlewska from Rabarbar Cakery Bahrain to create this cake.

Marta Godlewska – Rabarbar Cakery Bahrain

Marta always loved cooking. Ever since she could make scrambled eggs she loved making up her own recipes and spending time in the kitchen. She started her cake journey after leaving her job and being at home for a while. She dove into cooking new exciting dishes every day, and for the first time in her life she tried baking. That was it. She was hooked. The oven was on everyday and after her friends tried her baked experiments,  they started asking her to make their friends and kids birthday cakes. Her first design cake was for a flatmate of hers. The cake was a vanilla strawberry and cream cake with ombre sponge and tiny ombre hearts on the outside to match. It took her 4 hours to cut them out with a small plunger. Three years later, she still makes that design from time to time.

Fun Fact:
“I used to get hiccups every time I  laughed:D which just made me laugh even more..”

This Baby Hanging In a Tree Cake was made by Sunitha Kurian from Sweet Art Of Mine in Maryland.

Sunitha is a hobby baker.  Her cake journey started a few years back when she saw a cake show on TV. Prior to this she had never looked at cakes as an art form and had never heard what fondant was. The cakes on the show made her curious and she had to give it a shot. Her very first fondant cake was her own birthday cake.

She has made only a handful of cakes. She loves watching cake tutorials and using that as her inspiration to try something of her own.

She says, “I am so thankful to the amazing cake gurus out there for being so generous in sharing their knowledge and techniques. I am so honored to be a part of this amazing collaboration and a group of very talented cake artists. So thank you Zawadi for inviting me.”

Her cake is inspired by the “No child born with HIV” campaign and the aim for an “AIDS Free Generation”. She has chosen to do a baby in a Red sling where the red cloth represents the Red Ribbon which is the universal symbol of awareness, support and hope for those living with HIV. The baby in the sling symbolizes the hope for a future generation free of HIV.

REDMOON_01

This World AIDS Day cake was made by Veronica Tiavero from tartas da tiaverotartas da tiavero Facebook page in Garcia, Spain.

Veronica started as amateur in 2005, making cakes for her nephews. That´s where her name “tiavero12” comes from. In 2010, she began a more professional career, taking a class in Portugal in ANCD from a well-known international artist coming from Cake Design. She has won many awards due to her original designs and their big and clean execution. Her education as an architect gave her tools to create many of her pieces. Her passion is sugar modeling and cake sculpting together with taking part in competitions where cakes are made alive. She loves challenges and working under pressure. She currently teaches courses to share with everybody her love for this sweet art. She lives in A Coruña, Galicia, in Northwest Spain.  

Her piece was inspired by the relationship of the Lunar cycle with the cycle of women. She represented a woman connected to the Red Moon, taking from it the energy needed to bring her child into the world healthy .

 

Pequeña Biografía

Comencé en este mundo de la repostería creativa de un modo autodidacta en el año 2005 realizando las tartas a mis sobrinos de ahí mi nombre “tiavero12”, a partir del 2010 comencé de un modo más profesional formándome en Portugal de la mano de la ANCD con grandes artistas internacionales del Cake Desing, asociación con la que he participado en numerosos concursos logrando gran cantidad de premios gracias a mis originales diseños y su gran limpieza de ejecución. Mi formación como arquitecta me ha ayudado a la creación de muchas de mis obras dulces. Mi pasión es el modelado en azúcar y las tartas esculpidas así como los concursos en los que se realizan las tartas en directo ya que me encantan los retos y trabajar bajo presión.
En la actualidad me dedico  a impartir cursos para compartir con todos mi amor por este arte dulce.

 

INSPIRACIÓN
Me he inspirado en la relación del ciclo Lunar con el ciclo de la mujer. He representado a la mujer conectada  a la  Luna roja tomando de ella la energía necesaria para traer a su hijo sano al mundo.

AIDSCAKE

This cake with a Woman with a Gravity defying balloon was made by Jonathan Theuma from JT Cakes in Birkirkara, Malta.

Jonathan’s contribution is a gravity defying cake balloon. The balloon represents the Red ribbon for AIDS. He did a pregnant figure holding the balloon cake. The heart on the pregnant figure’s belly represents the love for the baby. The balloon is rising up from the grey dark cake board. The grey dark cake board covered in red gum paste ribbons represents the sadness of AIDS.

This cake was made by Trudy Smith from The Chain Lane Cake Co. in Sussex, UK.

Trudy is from East Sussex in the UK. She is a stay at home mum with 2 children. She has always loved baking, but once she had children she bought a couple of Debbie Brown’s cake books and had a go at making cakes for her childrens’  birthdays.

Magical Cakes  Enchanted Cakes   Easy Party Cakes

 

She made a ladybird cake for her daughter’s 1st birthday and a racing car for her son’s 3rd birthday that same year and that was 8 years ago. After a few years friends and family asked her to make them cakes too, her hobby grew along with her passion for designing and decorating cakes.

She started The Chain Lane Cake Co. in 2013. The Chain Lane Cake Co. was  named after the road she lives on.

Interesting fact about her: She has stroked a tiger and been in enclosures with a lynx and a serval.

She took inspiration for her piece from two separate images – the image of a mother and her baby and the image of a beaded AIDS flag pin. She painted the first image onto a sugar paste disc.  The first image is an image of a mother gazing adoringly at her baby who is swaddled in her shawl. The other image was a beaded AIDS flag pin. The pattern of this image was used around the top tier by cutting out lots of sugar paste dots and arranging them to look like the AIDS Day ribbons. She also decided to use a silhouette of a mother and a child repeated around the base tier.

This World AIDS Day cake was made by Berna Garcia from Illusiona Cakes in Madrid, Spain

Inspiration for her cake: She says,

“I was inspired by some African masks that I have in my living room. From there it all began! The masks represent the hypocrisy of the powerful (countries, Governments) that turn a blind eye to the drama that this people lives, and worldwide.

She represents the helpless human being, mutilated, with a face without identity, reflecting many anonymous struggle against this pandemic and that only hope left them.”

This World AIDS Day cake was made by Tonya Alvey from MadHouse Bakes in Missouri.

Tonya Alvey has always loved to bake, but had never tried sculpting or painting with cakes (or anything else) until 2011, and it was because of her children’ birthday requests.  She fell in love with it and is always pushing herself to learn more and to be unique.  She especially loves tree art, and is continually inspired by trees. 

For her inspiration for this cake she says: “For this collaboration piece, I incorporated my love of trees, with the gift of motherhood.  It is my wish for all pregnant women to experience the beauty and peace I associate with pregnancy.”

One fun fact about myself:

“I started face and body painting last year, and love it!  I do it frequently throughout the year at fairs, festivals, and private parties.”

This cake that represents a Box Sculpture of Mother and Child was made by Joanne Wieneke from The Little CakePatch in Connecticut

The inspiration for her cake was a Box Sculpture of Mother and Child by Artist : Susan Clinard. Joanne got permission from the original artist to use this piece as inspiration.

Joanne says of her piece, 
“”Because with my offspring I will fight with the fangs of the wolf and the claws of the dragon and no one and nothing will stop me from protecting them” 
“I have made you, and I will carry you, I will sustain you and I will rescue you”.  
A powerful literary quote and a verse from the Book of Isaiah that guided me  as I worked through the expressions to convey emotions of a Mother’s love, strength and devotion. From the time a mother conceives, she instinctively nurtures her child and will protect from all forces that will cause harm to her child, in health, heartaches, physical pain and the hardships in life, she will secure her children’s future and even unselfishly give up her life if needed…”

These sugar pieces were 2d hand sculpted and were made from 70% gum paste and 30% modeling chocolate.

Joanne’s journey with sugar crafting started almost 10 years ago when she realized that her skills for culinary, crafting and painting could be combined to a perfect Edible Sweet Art. This art has led her to experience beautiful, sweet and lasting friendships. It has been her honor and pleasure to have served her edible art on many life events and shared her knowledge and skills through teaching and demonstrations. She will continue to learn and create and enjoy the world of sugar craft as long as her hands and imagination allow.

This Latin American Mother and Child Cake was Made by Florence Devouge from Corazon de Azúcar in Sant Cugat del Vallès, Spain

Florence Devouge was born in Argentina, but she has lived in Spain for the past 13 years. She has been baking and decorating cakes for 3 years.

She made her first decorated cake for her eldest son’s birthday. She enjoyed creating an idea and moving it to a cake. Her specialty is modeled figures. It’s what she loves to do and she has her own unique style. She is passionate about 3D carved cakes. She teaches Cake decorating courses across the country and enjoys it very much!.

Her cake is a tribute to Latin American mothers. It is full of color and joy because there is hope of eliminating the mother to child transmission of HIV, because Cuba has become the first country in the world to do so.

Soy Argentina de nacimiento pero vivo en España desde hace 13 años. Llevo horneando y decorando tartas desde hace 3 años. 

Mi primera tarta decorada la hice para el cumpleaños de mi hijo mayor y me di cuenta de lo feliz que me hacía creando una idea y trasladándola a una tarta. Mi especialidad son las figuras modeladas. Es lo que más me gusta hacer y creo que he logrado tener un estilo propio. Pero también me apasionan las tartas en 3D talladas. 

También me dedico a enseñar lo que sé. Doy cursos por todo el país y lo disfruto muchísimo!.

Mi tarta es un homenaje a las madres latinoamericanas.  Está lleno de color y alegría porque existe la esperanza de eliminar la transmisión de madre a hijos, como lo ha hecho Cuba al convertirse en el primer país en el mundo en conseguirlo.

This World AIDS Day Cake was Made by Tina Scott Parashar from Tina Scott Parashar’s Cake Design in Johannesburg-South Africa.

 

Tina Scott Parashar is a hobby cake decorator who entered this industry 3 years ago. She has a modern style that is clean and very detail oriented. In 2014, she won Gold and 2nd place in the World Orchid Conference and in 2015, again Gold and 2nd prize in Cake International, London. 

She has a post graduate degree in Fashion Communication and worked in the electronic media industry for 6 years but then decided to quit after the birth of her son. This break from her professional career gave her an opportunity to explore her creative side and her love for Art by delving into the world of cake decoration. She is originally from India but she has been based in South Africa for the past 2 years. 

Through her piece she wanted to focus on the AIDS epidemic in Africa, and how it impacts the most vulnerable – the mother and child. The mother’s tears represent her desperation and frustration at being unable to help her child. The bottom tier depicts the suffering caused by HIV and AIDS. The upper tier represents hope and the triumph over this curse of our society and the hope of complete victory over mother to child transmission. 

The symbol on top, which is also shaped like the AIDS red ribbon, represents the infinite love between the mother and child.
