My Story

As a young teen, I developed a love for art and sewing. I remember watching my mother make garments for herself and others. At the age of 13, I started making my own clothes with the guidance of my mother and using patterns purchased from local stores. While in high school, I studied clothing and textile and learned about different fabrics and garment styles. In 1989, I began making wedding gowns. After many years of sewing experience, I was able to look at a garment and tell exactly how it was designed. Realizing that sewing was free from constraints, I then started sewing and altering garments for clients and showcasing my work in local fashion shows.

Always eager and willing to learn something new, I became interested in wedding cakes. I completed the three courses of Wilton’s Cake Decorating earning my certificate of merit for each class. I continued my success by taking online cake decorating classing, learning the latest designs and technique for the best cake designers from around the world.

In 1997, I launched my home-based business called L J SWEETS AND DESIGNS. Wedding and birthday cakes were my specialties. Inspired and motivated, I then challenged myself to turn my cake-decorating skills and eye for flair into edible displays of art.

As you browse our website, you will clearly see the intricate, creative detail put into each of our cakes! We offer the best in confectionery art, 3 D sculpted cake as well as couture wedding cakes.
