​We continue to teach in the sugar industry and have 39 years combined experience in the field of education.  We are members in the International Cake Exploration Society (ICES).  We’ve appeared on TLC’s Ultimate Cake Off in both seasons, taking the win in the first season for $10,000. We’ve taught on Cake Cruises, at numerous conventions, in Canada, at the California Cake Club Cake Camps and at many other venues across the United States.  We are Artist of Excellence in partnership with Satin Ice.  In addition to teaching, we have created support systems for upright golf bags, guitars, cars and have new and innovative designs in the works. We are both degreed Home Economists, retired educators, mothers, grandmothers and yes we are real sisters!  We love what we do and are ready to share our ideas.  When invited to your area we bring a touch of Louisiana with us along with a great time!



"Our reputation, experience, knowledge and skill levels enable us to create the perfect cake for any occasion."

Born and raised on our Grandfather’s hundred acre sugar cane farm on the outskirts of St. Martinville, Louisiana, in the heart of Cajun Country, we have last followed our blessing and passion.  Having raised our children and retired, we converted the old barn house on the farm into a professional kitchen, and turned our love of baking into a business—and Sweet Southern Ladies was born in 2004. As graduates of the University of Southwestern Louisiana in Lafayette, we both hold Bachelor of Science degrees in Vocational Home Economics Education while I earned another in Elementary Education and Becky, a Master’s in Education.

Our spiritually and deep faith in God has always been the corner stone of our lives which combined with a passion for baking and sugar-art has contributed to the success of Sweet Southern Ladies Designer Cakes llc.  In 2008, we self-published and edited our first book, Sweet Treasures.  The book is a beautiful collection of our works which includes wedding cakes, groom’s cakes, sculpted cakes and more. We have conducted cake design and construction courses across the nation and internationally, produced a collection of educational DVD’s and more, been published in many magazines, such as the Knot, American Cake Decorating, Mailbox, Twisted South, Southern Lifestyle, St. Charles Bridal, Perfect Wedding Guide, Grace Ormand and Acadiana Profile and N.O.W. ​
