Zoe Burmester Cake Artist

Hello! I'm Zoë, a multi award winning cake artist, presenter, writer and sugar craft demonstrator and tutor. 

Formerly a film and TV set stylist I swapped my canvas from film sets to cake; a journey that started after I made my son his first novelty birthday cake.

In addition to private and PR commissions for cake sculptures and food art, I have also appeared on TV making my cakes too and am a regular columnist for industry magazines.

Sugar Street Studios has now grown to encompass an online cake school with over 80 guest tutors and a membership base of cake enthusiasts and hobbyists from around the world.


This is a very small selection of our previous work. Past corporate clients include BBC, Twitter, Adidas, Secret Cinema, Oak Furnitureland, Media 10, Channel 5

Cake and Bake Show


Commissioned as a showcase piece to celebrate the theme of illusion cakes, at the Cake and Bake Show held at Excel London. The theme was baking and featured two life like capuchin monkeys running through a kitchen. Entire tableaux sculpted from chocolate and sugar.

5ft Disco Dancer Cake


Standing just under 5ft tall this completely edible disco dancer stood on a rotating record player also from cake. She was the centrepiece of a 1970's 's themed party to celebrate the 2nd birthday of a boutique hotel and pub.

Emperor Penguin Cake


Commissioned as a wedding cake, the couple wanted two life-size emperor penguins as their centrepiece. One was a chocolate Oreo inspired cake, the other was toffee and banana.

Twitter Birthday Cake


Celebrating Twitter's 12th birthday, the client requested a simple drip cake that reflected brand colours and logo at an event in London.

Swan Lantern cake


Illuminated swan lantern cake commissioned by the 'Wake up Wells' organisation to mark the annual lantern parade that happens through the city of Wells. Cake was sculpted from chocolate and salted caramel with non edible illuminations so it lit up with the other lanterns on parade.

Everyone loved the cake and it tasted amazing.

Another creation of superb, gorgeous imagination, sculpture and dedication to your art Zoë.
