Hi, I'm Charlotte,
In 2011, I established Sugar Ruffles and began creating beautiful, bespoke wedding cakes, for clients in the Lake District and surrounding areas. In 2014 my Mum, Sally joined the business and together we provide a luxury wedding cake design experience for couples in The Lake District.
In 2020, I began teaching students from around the world in my online sugar flower classes, as well in my signature course- Sugar Rose Artistry-A masterclass in creating and colouring sugar roses and the art of pricing sugar flowers
Get to know the people behind Sugar Ruffles and the one-of-a-kind, award-winning experience we provide....
I'm constantly inspired by the changing seasons for colour palettes and florals.
I love sparkle and love to incorporate beautiful hints of sparkle to catch the light in my cake designs
Fresh flowers are beautiful at weddings and in everyday life. Roses, peonies and hydrangea are my favourites.
As a professional wedding cake artist, beautiful details are simply my favourite.
My journey to becoming a wedding cake designer began when I was working as a primary school teacher. I started making cakes as a hobby, mainly cupcakes and cake pops and then once I discovered sugar flowers, I loved them so much I started making wedding cakes and have never looked back.
I had only been making cakes for 1 year when I was approached by cake craft and decoration magazine and asked to become a contributor for their cake craft guides magazines- 'Wedding Cakes & Sugar Flowers' and 'Party Cakes'. I contributed regular step by step cake tutorials and was honoured to have my cakes featured on the cover on several occasions.
For the last 10 years I have continued to develop my own style and have been named as one of the top 50 UK wedding cake designers 5 years in a row!
Hi I'm Sally, I'm Charlotte's Mum and I've been a part of Sugar Ruffles since the very beginning and I started working with Charlotte full time in the business nearly 6 years ago.
I'll be the first person you speak to when you make your initial enquiry. I can help you work out which of our wedding cake packages will be perfect for you and answer any of your questions.
I am also the designated delivery driver, so I know all the Lake District roads like the back of my hand. My favourite flowers are tulips and I love spring weddings! I love to create wedding cakes with pretty petal ruffles and cascading hydrangea flowers.
I look forward to chatting with you about your special day!
In 2020, I began teaching sugar flowers to students from around the world in my online Sugar Flower Artistry classes.
In our online classes you can learn how to create beautiful sugar flowers, as well as advanced petal dusting techniques and the art of sugar flower arranging. Join us in our community of sugar flower creators from around the world. Learn new skills, and create beautiful works of art!
We’ve taught hundreds of people to create beautiful sugar flowers and we’re here to help you too! Whether you’re a complete beginner, an intermediate or a more experienced sugar flower maker, we have something for you.
