Mary Ahonen is known Australia-wide for her innovative approach to designing and decorating cakes. With 51 years experience, 31 of them as a professional cake artist, she has a huge portfolio of photos, designs and ideas together with championships and major awards in Australian shows, including the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee medal for cake decorating. In 1976, Mary's associates in the cake-decorating industry awarded her the unofficial title of 'the most affordable quality decorator'. She is the creator of "The Rose Cascade", "Arum Lily" and "Heart of Roses" designs exclusively for Sweetart of Paddington, Sydney.

Working from her home studio, Mary makes, ices and decorates each cake personally, with fifteen varieties of cake flavours available, exquisite hand-moulded sugar flowers and the finest piping. To complement the finished creation, she is also able to personally deliver and set up the cake for the client.

Mary's hallmark is simple and elegant - "inside and out, a cake should taste as good as it looks." Mary also decorates her clients' own baked cakes on request. If you would like to learn how to decorate your own cakes, Mary is a TAFE Qualified teacher, and provides private lessons on request. A showroom of decorated cakes is also available at her home studio to assist you in choosing the perfect cake to grace your celebration.

Whatever your tastes and whatever the occasion, Mary will work closely with you to create the cake of your dreams. From the elaborate and imaginative to the sweet and simple, you are sure to be pleased with the quality of her work and exacting attention to detail.
