About Sharon Wee
In The Beginning
Originally from Singapore, Sharon relocated to Australia to study media and marketing over a decade ago and decided she enjoyed the lifestyle (and food!) too much to leave.
After graduating and starting her first corporate job she felt unfulfilled. She needed something else, and started searching for a hobby to keep her busy. Since she always loved desserts and all thing crafty, it was a perfect fit when she stumbled upon a cake decorating class at a local community college. It was there that she fell in love with cake decorating and the obsession began. She would jump at any opportunity to make cakes for family and friends and as she got better at it they encouraged her to start selling her creations.
Going It Alone
Without a whole lot of experience on cake decorating or running a business, she decided to give it a try anyway. Like many decorators she started by building up her business while still working full time. This meant lots of really late nights, occasional mistakes, and sometimes uncertainty. But it was her passion for cake decorating that kept her moving forward and finally gave her the courage to quit her corporate job and focus on her business full time.
To date, Sharon’s creations have been on TV, in magazines, on the radio, and have won multiple online and show awards.
Sharon’s style has been described as clean, fun, cute and whimsical. She spent many years focusing on wedding cakes but now prefers 3D sculpted cakes and cute figurines. In recent years she decided to start teaching rather than taking on so many orders.
By teaching all around the world she discovered that she loved getting to know students from all different backgrounds and watching them learn and achieve projects they never thought they could. These experiences are always fun and rewarding. She’s recently decided to focus more on teaching from her home studio in Mascot (Sydney, Australia) where she lives with her business and life partner Nick and dog Rufus.
