In 2017 a group of sugarcrafters came together under the leadership of Captain Vicky Teather of the Yellow Bee Cake Co to form the Sugar Pirates. Vicky is one of the UK ambassadors for Saracino.

We have created a display of cakes, cookies and cupcakes using Saracino products. We’re super proud to announce that we won the best group table at Cake International.
Many of the artists chose to use Saracino for their pieces, so I’ve put together a gallery of some of the favourites from the show to share.
One of the most popular was Nicola Gerrans take on Captain Jack Sparrow and Anna Taylor Dillon’s skeleton pirate
Vicky created the Sugar team to include all skill levels, so if you would like to take part in next years theme please contact our facebook page, SUGAR COLLABORATION  and check out our marvellous booty of fine work.

Enjoy <3
