“I need assistance from an amazingly helpful, highly responsive expert, and suggestions for designing my cake.”

Decorating cakes for a living isn’t for the faint of heart (no matter how glamorous Netflix tries to make it look)— you work looooong nights and weekends and spend so many thankless hours in the kitchen. Even when the spotlight is on your cake at the wedding, even when your cake tastes as incredible as it looks, even when you’re featured in photoshoots and bridal magazines around the country–it ain’t easy!

You need space and time to focus on the bigger parts of your business, or maybe take a well-deserved vacay for yourself and your family. I can’t wait to take something off your plate and create high-end, nature-inspired, delicate-but-durable Sugar Flowers for your next edible masterpiece!

My customer service > Amazon’s customer service.
(just sayin’!)

I see you, small business owner feeling overworked and overwhelmed,
trying to do allthethings.
I don’t want you settling for less-than-amazing cake decorations just because
your suppliers let you down.

When I was a kid, I used to make “mud pies” decorated with wildflowers. Now I’m a baker of all trades who hung up my oven mitts to focus on my passion: making Sugar Flowers. You can think of me as your Sugar Flower Fairy Godmother: someone on your side who’s as obsessed about quality as you are, who understands the time crunch you’re under, and who knows how to beat back the sea of competition cropping up everywhere.

I’m a baker of all trades who hung up my oven mitts to focus on my passion: making Sugar Flowers.

I’ve basically been doing this since I was a toddler.

Hey there, I’m Kelsie!

It was a gorgeous addition to my grandmother's 100th birthday cake. The packaging was great and protected the flower to the day we used it. Very easy to attach to the cake. I followed all the directions given by the seller's video, regarding storage and application. Thanks again.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I ever! I love custom orders! Custom-designed Sugar Flowers average $600-$1,200 for a 4 tier wedding cake. Please share with me the details of the cake and the event, and I'll work with you to create something unique. Throughout the process, I'll keep you updated with photos, progress, and shipping status before carefully packaging and shipping your Sugar Flowers to the location of your choice. Custom orders take longer to create, so please order at least 4-6 weeks before your event. Click here to learn more about your custom order flowers.

Can you make custom flower designs?

There’s a quiz for that! I’ll help you figure out what size and how many flowers you’ll need for your cake. None of the options look quite right? I can help with custom orders, too. 

DO I NEED A SMALL OR A LARGE OPEN ROSE?

Sugar Flowers are shelf-stable at room temperature, due to their sugar content and low moisture. Keep the flowers out of direct sunlight (it can fade the colors) as well as extreme heat/cold, and especially out of humidity. Some refrigerators are very humid and can cause the flowers to melt, so I recommend placing the flowers on your cake just before serving. Each flower arrives in a box suitable for storage and comes with a care guide.

HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF THE FLOWERS BEFORE I USE THEM?

Every Sugar Flower is created by me from small-batch handmade gumpaste. Because I do not run a large industrial manufacturing facility, my flowers will not be the same “bright white” shade that you will find from other companies. The white flowers have a soft creaminess to them, which makes the flowers look less commercial and more handcrafted.

 However, if you leave the white flowers exposed to UV light for too long, the color will become even more ivory so I recommend storing the flowers away from UV light or in an archival safe container.

Why does my white open rose look ivory?

Custom orders take 4-6 weeks to create before shipping. Sugar Flowers in The Shop are available for shipping immediately. I ship all orders myself from my home studio, so your flowers will be carefully and lovingly packaged up within 2 business days of your order. Shipping takes about 3-5 days in the US via the Post Office with standard shipping. International shipping can take up to 6 weeks. Rush shipping is also available at checkout. If you are concerned about your order arriving in time, please contact me with your event date to confirm that the flowers will arrive before your event.

How soon will I receive my flowers?

Sugar Flowers are made with edible ingredients (gumpaste, egg whites, sugar) however they also contain non-edible materials such as wires which are used to hold the petals together and arrange the flowers. The wired flowers are not meant to be eaten, and should be removed prior to serving your cake.

Are Sugar Flowers edible?

I've shipped thousands of flowers, and I've found the best way to safely package your flowers is with lots of padding and fragile stickers! I've had very few packages arrive damaged.
I can't guarantee what happens at the post office, so I always recommend ordering in advance, and getting extra flowers if you're in a time crunch.
In the unlikely event that your flowers are damaged during shipping, please contact me to file your claim. Send in photos of the broken flower and packaging, and we’ll work together to figure out if you need a repair, a replacement, or a refund For minor damage, a tutorial can be found below.

Is it safe to ship the flowers? What if they break?

I love this question! When I’m working with you to create the Sugar Flowers for your cake design, you are the visionary. I’m here to help make your life easier, because let’s face it, creating wedding cakes is a huge endeavor and you don’t always have time for making flowers. My goal is for your Sugar Flowers to elevate and complement the detail and artistry that you put into every one of your edible masterpieces. You can think of me as your “white label” sugar artist.

What if I only make my Sugar Flowers in-house?

  • If you have a specific design in mind, you’ll fill out my quick questionnaire with your cake’s details: size, colors, floral inspiration.
  • A highly trained sugar artist (that’s me!) will sketch a design that reflects the style and inspiration of the event’s centerpiece (that’s your cake!), and after you approve the design, I’ll carefully craft each flower and leaf by hand.
  • Every flower will be photographed for you to confirm the final design before shipping, then carefully packaged (seriously, I can spend hours delicately wrapping up individual petals) and shipped to arrive before the event.
  • Finally, the fun part: unboxing!
  • You’ll receive an email with resources and videos to show how to unwrap, store, and use the Sugar Flowers on your cake – no matter what size.
  • I’ll personally follow up with you to see if you have any questions about the final arrangement.
  • If any flowers were damaged during shipping, we’ll work together to figure out if you need a repair, a replacement, or a refund.
