Peggy Tucker began creating cakes in the Rochester, Minnesota area in 1995. She worked to perfect her techniques through the years under the study of several well-known sugar artists including Colette Peters, Nicholas Lodge, and Kathy Scott.

In 2003 Peggy decided to focus on teaching, which she says is one the aspect of cake decorating she truly loves above all others. She opened the School of Cakeology in 2009, where she takes great joy in watching her students advance to achieve medals of their own. This new endeavor has also allowed her to travel as both a teacher and cake show competitor. She has received numerous awards for her amazing competitive entries, several of which can be seen on the school’s website at www.schoolofcakeology.com.

An ICES member since 1999, Peggy is also a member of the Upper Midwest Bakery Association (UMBA), the Minnesota Chapter of ICES and the California Cake Club.

 

Susan enrolled in her first class over 12 years ago and after that the “Game Was On!” She just couldn’t get enough of this wonderful world of “Sugar Art”. She then began entering cake shows, joining local cake clubs and proceeded to start teaching cake decorating classes just one year later. Another year after that she began working as the Lead Cake Designer for a bakery in Dana Point, California, helping it to become one of the most sought out bakeries in Orange County. During that time, she was also privileged and experienced enough to start giving “Sugar Art” instruction and demonstrations across the USA.

Susan’s “Edible Works of Art” have won numerous awards and have been featured in magazines such as “American Cake Decorator” and “Here Comes the Cake.” She has appeared on the Food Networks show “Top Five” and won 1st place with her unique “3 Dimensional Cookies.” She has also competed on TLC’s “Ultimate Cake Off” twice. On season one (The Pirate Episode) placing 2nd and on season two (The Roller Derby Episode) winning the competition and a check for $10.000.

In 2010 she was selected to make the centerpiece cake for the ICES Show in San Diego, California. The cake base alone was an 8 ft by 8 ft platform and the cake stood over 13 ft tall. It featured all the sights and attractions of San Diego including the famous San Diego Trolley running through the center of the cake and through the various cities of the region.

These days when she is not at her shop “The Cake Cottage” in Murrieta, she is on the road teaching “Sugar Art” classes across the country. Susan is also an International Cake Exploration Societe (ICES) instructor. Susan strives to make her classes fun with a stress free work environment for her students, yet at the same time making sure that they grasp not only the concept but the actually physical techniques needed to become a top notch decorator. She looks forward to meeting many more aspiring cake decorators and passing on some of the knowledge that she has amassed over the years as well as making her shop “The Cake Cottage” a truly unique experience and a much desired destination for her clientele.
