What a sweet treat to hear about Randi’s story and her gourmet custom cake design bakery and studio, Sugar Euphoria. Established in 2011, Sugar Euphoria specializes in creating unique, personalized and custom wedding cakes and dessert bars that are sure to wow your guests and make all of your sweet treat dreams come true!
1.What is your culinary background and how did you find yourself in the tasty business of creating beautiful cakes?!
I learned how to bake by helping my mom and grandmother on Sunday afternoons when I was a kid. It wasn’t until I graduated from college that I dove into the world of cake decorating. My husband really encouraged me to hone my skills and Sugar Euphoria was born!
2. How can couples best convey their design ideas to you?
I love when clients bring various design elements to me – pictures of the bride’s dress (without the groom seeing it), their invitation suite, swatches of their linens, their design board and inspiration from Pinterest. In addition to these elements, I ask them to describe their dream cake.
3. What do you enjoy most about the design process? It is such an art!
I love the entire process! I feel the same amount of joy whether I’m doing the initial sketch or putting the final design element in the cake at the wedding venue. I’m so grateful to be doing what I love!
4. I’m sure you are always inspired by your clients, but where do you most often find personal inspiration?
Personally, I’m inspired by earthy elements – greenery, florals, stones, jewel tones, and metallics. I also love soft textures and designs with a lot of movement.
5. You are incredibly talented! How do you keep a fresh outlook and stay on top of new wedding trends?
Thank you! It’s so easy to replicate someone else’s designs when you’re on social media, so I keep a fresh outlook by logging off. In my spare time, I skim through architectural, fashion, and bridal magazines. In terms of wedding trends, I love following designers, stylists, and photographers from all over the globe. I come across some really unique and beautiful designs.
