Carnival Cakers is a digital collaboration created by Jennifer Kennedy O’Friel, of Sweet JennieD, and Heba M Elalfy, of Sweet Dreams by Heba.
Multi-talented, international group of 92 sugar artists from all walks of life, 21 different countries around the world, have united to celebrate Carnival through sugar art.
The team are from countries such as America, Canada, Mexico, England and Ireland.
This is set to be an annual event celebrating a different country, region or culture every year, and for their maiden voyage, we will begin with The Venetian Carnival, which is fitting since Italy has one of the oldest and best-known celebrations. The artists created amazing cakes and cake toppers as well as fantastic cookies, to showcase the majesty and beauty of The Venetian Carnival. This edible art will make you fall in love with Carnival!
To further entice you, Jennifer and Heba held an anonymous sugar competition in five separate categories. They were Best Sculpted Cake, Best Single / Tiered Cake, Best Cake Topper / Sugar Sculpture, Best Cookie Art, and Best Non Professional Art.
Brands donated different products to the winners of each category. Five companies offered our Carnival Cakers discounts on their product for use in this collaboration. The team want to say a big 'thank you’ to these companies for their support. They are Flexique, Icing Images, Simi Cakes & Confections, Innovative Sugarworks and Beau Petit Cupcakes.
The Facebook page is called ‘Carnival Cakers - Venetian Style’ which went live on February 18th 2017 and can be found at https://www.facebook.com/CarnivalCakers/
The collaboration would like to once again thank all of our sponsors who were an integral part of our success, and who each have a shout-out on our Facebook page as well as on other media sites! The Venetian Carnival awaits you all...
