Sweet Forgeries is the home of celebration cakes created by sculptor Jennifer Mann. We create unique edible artworks for any special occasion. Please take a moment to browse our gallery and if you would like us to create a cake or slice for your next special occasion, please call or email us.
Jennifer's cake making journey began over 20 years ago when her young nieces would request birthday cake versions of their favourite TV characters or cute toys. Jennifer has also created many "grown up" sculptural cakes, from a makeup case and handbag stack 30th birthday cake to a basket of buttercream flowers for a special 100th birthday cake.
Inspired by a visit to the Uffizi gallery in Florence, Jennifer then started creating cake versions of her favourite masterpiece paintings with ornate chocolate frames with edible gold finish, and sugar images of some of the world’s most famous and loved paintings.
We also offer a unique wallpaper cake range - layer cakes covered in colourful sugar prints - and a range of slices decorated with edible versions of traditional ceramic designs, historical tapestries and pop art.
Since those early days, we have gone on to make hundreds of birthday cakes, anniversary cakes, wedding cakes, and edible artworks for other special occasions, such as baby arrivals, confirmations and Christmas.
Based in the Macedon Ranges, Victoria, Australia, we deliver free within a 30km radius of our cake studio and for a delivery charge to all Melbourne suburbs. Statewide and interstate delivery is available by arrangement.
