You may have noticed on Social Media that recently we have been sharing profiles of our amazing team of Ambassadors. We are proud to have Ambassadors from all over the world and thought you may like to learn a bit more about some of them. If so, please read on….
You may ask why and how we choose our Ambassadors?
One reason is we love working with different artists who all have differing opinions and views of the cake decorating world. People who have various talents, people who have different views on art and present it in various ways. We choose Artists that use Saracino products because they love working with them.
Our team has been built with Artists who love using Saracino products. As individuals they have their own styles and preferences and all enjoy working in differing ways with various materials. We try to provide them with the chance to grow and promote themselves on our ever growing social media to give themselves and Saracino positive publicity.
This post is dedicated to some of our team. Artists who regularly blow us and you away with their talent, people you follow daily, Artists you learn from, and, people that are proving that almost everything is possible if you really want it. Hard work and dedication always leads to results and this group of Ambassadors are a perfect example of it.
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce them to you once again. We have a team of world class Artists whom we are immensely proud of.
This blog is about our UK Team that currently consists of 12 Ambassadors. They all possess differing skills that hopefully demonstrates the versatility of the products available in the Saracino range. We are also finding that using our products these Artists are branching out to learn new skills as new products become available. Such as flower making, modelling, wafer paper work and sculpting.
So here goes! Let us introduce you to our UK team. Trumpet fanfare please……….

We asked our Ambassadors how they see their role of being a Saracino Ambassador. This is a sample of some of the comments we had back –
“A Saracino Ambassador is someone who loves the product and wants to share that and convince others to use it”. – Vicky
“Apart from the honour of being part of such an awesome team of talented people, it’s the chance to share how great the products are and what a difference they make to your creations” – Zoe Smith
“I think it’s about showing others what fantastic products they are and helping encourage people to try them out too. After all it’s easy to promote a product that you use all the time and actually sells itself. Oh and one more thing, like Zoe said being part of such a ridiculously talented team is a real privilege” – Sarah Bray
“It’s about showcasing Saracino products but also encouraging people to enjoy their creativity, to support their endeavours, whatever their skill level. I’ve loved Saracino since hosting Barbara here for a class a few years ago so to be able to endorse something with integrity and honesty was really important to me. Saracino makes my job as a cake decorator much easier and I want to share that far and wide” – Melanie Williamson
“Saracino gives me an opportunity to explore so many areas of cake decorating that I never felt confident to try before. Love the products and their versatility, and of course being among such inspiring talented artists.” – Calli Hopper
“To be an ambassador you have to believe in something completely. Not just the incredible products but the amazing people behind the products, the people you work closest with and the team as a whole. I believe completely in our Saracino family. So it’s an absolute honour being able to share my skills and knowledge with people who love our products as much as we do. I am inspired each and every day seeing what magic people can achieve with Saracino, I never stop learning. It’s a privilege to be an ambassador for a company I adore!” – Lynsey Wilton-Eddleston
“Love Saracino’s products! I have been using them since 2014 and the quality has never failed.. Just as Cali mentioned, the top quality and versatility gives me so much confidence when exploring new feelds and most of all when working with my students. I promote the products and the company with pride.. and being in a team with the most talented decorators is a privilege” – Zlatina Lewis
