About Sugar Design and Liz Ungless



Once upon a time a young mother was dragged off to an icing class in order to keep a friend company. Six weeks later the course ended, the friend decided to try something else but for that mother it was already too late ... the bug had bitten ........

Over 25 years later and I am still fascinated by this beautiful craft. I have taught and been taught in three countries and demonstrated both in England and South Africa. I am very fortunate to have been inspired and taught by one of the most talented ladies in this craft, the late Jeanette van Niekerk. During this time I have made wedding cakes and celebration cakes for friends, family and colleagues.

I have been a member of the South African Cake Decorators Guild, and still am a member of the British Sugarcraft Guild and National Sugarart Association and have served as a committee member and Chairlady of a number of branches in both countries. I have also exhibited at a number of shows, and share my knowledge by demonstrating to many of the sugarcraft branches in East Anglia.
