Brenda's love of fondant and sugar art began while making her daughter's first birthday cake in 2010. Less than a year later, she started her business, Sugar High, Inc. Brenda's focus soon shifted from making cakes to creating fondant cake and cupcake toppers. Brenda's heart goes into each little character and creation, and she travels all over the country to share her passion and techniques for working with fondant.
