"When love and imagination work together, expect a masterpiece." This is the Sweet Art motto. Basically, Sweet Art have a sweet love for creating beautiful things. They love coordinating stylish events. They love decorating immaculate, masterpiece cakes. They love flowers, and also anything wedding.

Sweet Art was founded in Australia in 1980 by Anthea Leonard who at this stage, already had a pretty sweet track record for designing perfectly sculpted cakes for celebrity sets. Having done this for clients such as Barbra Streisand, Elton John, and Olivia Newton John, she knew what she was doing when she brought her scene to Sydney.

Edible design is but one passion of the people here at this boutique. You'll have an array of cake designs to choose from, any of which is sure to make your event even more exquisite - whether that be a birthday, a wedding, or an occasion of some other kind. Personalisation is key here. There does seem to be a floral fetish running through the design studio, with many of the designs also seeming to involve the flawless white icing coat typical of wedding cakes. Cake budget can be between $400 and $1500 depending on how lavish you want to go.

You can get a simple single-level cake, normally atop with some fancy icing accessories like the flowers upon the cake that was ordered for my friend's birthday. You may also order a two or three-storey cake. Also, if you so choose you can have each of these layers decorated with pastel or vibrant coloured icy accessories. These honestly look too good to eat though. Cutting the cake was a slightly sad moment for us in one respect - but the red-velvet cake that had been concealed by the layer of white tasted incredible and so made up for this quickly.

Want an event that is of utmost style, creativity, and beauty? From venue, to theme, to catering and entertainment; Sweet Art ensures professional coordination of your special occasion. Having helped coordinate some pretty large-scale events such as Qantas' 85th birthday, again I point out that they certainly know what they are doing when providing you with their services. Seriously, check out the Qantas event held at Brisbane Airport - Sweet Art was to thank for taking care of all the styling. It looks like the kind of event you would be at, yet completely feel like you are dreaming!
