Sugarplum Pastries’ Chef Lovely Jiao, known for her scene-stealing desserts, has unveiled her fairytale-themed collection – which consists of eight-foot dessert towers, lighted anti-gravity cakes and twirly whirly rotating toppers.
With the philosophy “no to boring desserts!”, she transforms her passion for architectural works into tiers of personalized creations of dreamy castles.
The alluring Cinderella-inspired piece dons elements straight from the musical fantasy, from the pumpkin carriage supplemented with intricately handmade gumpaste flowers and butterflies, the royal crown, all the way to the fabled glass slipper.
Specially made for those who love Disney’s classic, the Beauty and the Beast collection features the prince’s six-foot tower with lighted balconies and stained-glass windows.
This series comes with toothsome treats, to include cupcakes reminiscent of Lumiere and Cogsworth, sugar cookies in shapes of the Enchanted Rose and Mirror, as well as Grey Stuff pavlova that gives a burst of airy marshmallow, whipped cream and fruits in every bite.
The dessert innovator likewise encapsulates the perpetual winter in her illuminating and rotating sculpture of Arendelle, the Norwegian kingdom in Frozen. In this head-turning set, celebrants and guests alike are transported into the world of Elsa and Anna, which includes The North Mountain, the Ice Palace, the Frozen Lake and the Valley of the Living Rock.
The fantasy-filled four-tier hand-painted Tangled Cake, especially when set up with the glimmering floating lanterns on the background, invites spectators to reimagine the dreamy boat scene of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider.
Meanwhile, those who wish to veer away from the traditional chiffon may go for the delectable pastel meringue tower evocative of The Little Mermaid.
“We took the opportunity to highlight all the princesses and princes that didn’t get to celebrate with all of the wonderful people in their lives due to the pandemic,” Chef Lovely shared. “Seeing the event industry slowly open its doors, we are just thrilled to see everyone again.”
For more intimate celebrations, Chef Lovely offers mini cakes, chocolate cakesicles, dainty lollicakes, and mouthwatering macarons inspired by Disney princesses, from the fearless warrior Mulan, the noble Pocahontas, the strong-willed ice queen Elsa, the gentle beauty Snow White, the loving daughter Belle to the mischievous mermaid Ariel and the adventurous Rapunzel.
Chef Lovely is armed with a culinary degree from the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde School of Hotel, Restaurant, and Institution Management (SHRIM) and was honed with experiences from Makati Shangri-La and F1 Hotel Taguig.
Instead of climbing the ladder in the hotel kitchen industry, she decided to become a hands-on mom for her growing son and, in 2011, established her very own brand, Sugarplum Pastries.
