Rebecca Jane Sugar Art creates cakes, sweets and desserts with a modern artistic design aesthetic. All items are custom made to order in our registered kitchen. See the gallery for examples of our previous work and here for more information on Weddings or Party Cakes.
"A party without cake is just a meeting." - Julia Childs
A life message if ever there was one. Any celebration requires cake, no matter what the size or event! Rebecca Jane Sugar Art cakes are artistic both in design and taste. All cakes generally stand at an impressive five inches tall (or higher if you like!) with multiple layers of cake and filling inside.
Cakes can be covered in either silky meringue-based buttercream, rich chocolate ganache, or fondant. We use New Zealand made Pettinice for our fondant covered cakes. It gives a perfect smooth canvas for creating elaborate eye-catching designs, and holds up well in the warmer months. Fondant cakes have a nice thick layer of chocolate ganache underneath so you know you aren't sacrificing flavour in the name of design.
A selection of some of our favourite flavour pairings. Rebecca loves creating unique combinations and is happy to discuss any flavour ideas you might have. Most flavours can be made gluten or dairy free for a small extra cost.
