Meet Our Baker: Sandra

Our Baker Spotlight is back and this month, we caught up with Sandra, one of our cake artists who specialises in 3D character cakes and intricately designed biscuits.

Sandra began baking in 2012. She launched her own online school in 2014 and now also teaches others how to bake and decorate sophisticated cakes and cookies. She has travelled globally and held classes in Portugal, Spain, Greece and Thailand. We can see why people want to learn from her – Sandra’s 3D cakes truly are a work of art.

I asked her what her favourite personal creation has been. She said a mythological deer, which she entered into the London Cake International Show. The intricacy is what she is most proud of, and it definitely shines through in this cake, which went on to win a bronze medal in the decorative exhibit competition!

''The cakes I most love to make are definitely cute 3D characters for children’s birthday parties’, says Sandra. ‘I also love making gravity-defying cakes’. Have a look at the panda playing tennis below – it is hard to believe that the entire cake is being held up at just one point!''

Aside from making jaw-dropping cakes, Sandra tells us about her interest in making and decorating cookies. She creates floral and cute character designs using pressure piping techniques with royal icing and hand painting techniques. She has developed the intricacy of her designs over time, creating difficult designs and working with paints to bring them to life.

Sandra’s style is very unique and it is clear she spends time making sure each cake is as elaborate and as perfectly finished as possible. She adds in that she also makes cakes without fondant. She is no stranger to a drip cake or two!

A baker with many talents, it is a pleasure to have her as part of the MY BAKER community.
