Meet Suzanne Esper

Mum to two, wife to one, and friend to many!

Hello! I’m Suzanne and I’ve been honing my sugar skills since 2010! I started out making cupcakes as a hobby and fell in love with cakes. I dreamt about cake day and night and when I got made redundant from my science career, I went all in. You could say my skills sky rocketed and so did my wedding cake business. I was soon known for my beautifully finished cakes and sugar flowers.

It wasn’t long before I was being asked to teach others.


I run in-person group classes and private lessons from my beautiful new Cake School in central Scotland. In 2018 I launched my first-ever online class and boy it was an incredible experience. Here I could reach and teach hundreds of students around the world all learning from the comfort of their own homes.  I’d met my people.

Since then I’ve added over 10 online classes teaching Sugar flowers, Cake decorating skills, and macarons. Each one hosted right here on my website.


In 2020 I launched my very own range of sugarcraft products including Stainless Steel Cutters, Flower Paste, Dust Colours, Rolling Pins, Stencils, and beautiful Acrylic Flower Holders.

Awards and nominations

In 2019 I was awarded Top ten UK cake Artist and in 2022 I was awarded the Best Cake Magazine cover by Cake Masters Awards.

I was also nominated for Best learning experience (squeal) and Peoples Choice 2022. Then earlier this year I was nominated for Best Tutor and Best Sugar Florist by D’licious Cake Magazine! I’m still buzzing. What an honour.

Who I’ve worked with

I’m a Cake Stuff ambassador, I’ve taught on the main stage at the prestigious Cake International, I’ve written tutorials for Cake Masters Magazine, been featured on popular channels such as Avalon Cake School, Cake Flix and Incredible India.

Joint ventures

I’ve been really lucky to work with two incredible friends who I call cake wives! In 2020 myself and Natalie Porter of Immaculate Confections, launched our very first Cake Business Course -Bloom Your Cake Business. We’re looking forward to re-teaching this course again.

Then in January this year, I’ve been working with the fabulous Laura Lane of Love Laura Lane to bring Esper Lane Bake School to life. This course will be released later this year – so watch this space.

What’s important to me?

Aside from my family cos that’s a given, it’s – people. You matter to me. Wither you’ve been to one of my in-person classes or my online classes, I will look after you and provide continued support and help when you need it most.

At the heart of my classes is community. I’ve built several communities around my paid and free classes and I can’t tell you how wonderful these groups are. It’s such a joy to see students flourish and grow with each class.

Asking for advice, supporting others, sharing wins and works and taking part in our competitions. I know I’m biased but my students really are amazing humans and I love getting to teach them. What a privilege.

Sharon Andrew

I had never made sugar flowers before and I was so glad to be introduced to Suzanne Esper back in 2019. Her modern and unique style of teaching makes it all the more fun to the extent you cannot get enough. Apart from this being part of her most amazing community with all like-minded people, who are so supportive and encouraging… I would recommend these classes to anyone, it’s worth every penny and much more.

Marcia Campbell

I made my first sugar flower 30 years ago and have been teaching sugarcraft for 21 years, but I joined Suzanne in a stand alone class and was hooked!

Suzy has a fantastic ability to teach and encourage her students into making flowers, from the complete novice to the seasoned professionals to the hobbyist. Her classes are delivered in a professional relaxed and fun style and with great hints and tips. If anyone is looking to do online flower classes, Suzanne’s are highly recommended and gets 5 stars from me

Julie Mangan

Suzy is such a wonderful teacher. And the lessons are made to be so easy. I came across her by chance a couple of years ago and haven’t looked back and have done all the night schools.

For someone who has been making flowers for 20 years I still had something to learn and Suzy’s methods have improved my skills and flower making so much.

Don’t think we can do without our Suzy x 

Deborah Lee

Suzanne is such a wonderful teacher. She breaks things down so we don’t feel intimidated and motivates her students to follow their creative instincts. A true teacher rejoices in the success of their students. Suzanne is the truest of the true! 

Monique Hercules

Suzanne is a wonderful teacher, her methods are easy to follow, and the flowers from her courses are stunning. Her classes are suitable for beginners to advanced. I have done all her courses and can say it’s a money well spent.

Celine Hua

Suzanne is a wonderful teacher. With her classes, I have improved so much my sugar flowers. She gave me the confidence to achieve beautiful cakes. 

Plus, you get the classes for life so you can learn as fast as you want, and re watch it again and again.
So worth the money.

Sara Reed

Suzanne is just an amazing tutor. I originally just tried a stand-alone class 18 months ago and here I am on my 4th night school!! Since I started my journey with Suzanne my flowers have got better and my confidence has grown.

Susan White

This has been an amazing course! Loved every single flower, bud and leaf! The work of all the participants just highlights how incredible a tutor Suzanne is!
Warning : classes are addictive….

Diane Ray

I started with the “stand alone” open peony class & I was instantly hooked on Suzanne’s teaching style – so much so that I purchased Night school 1,2 & 3 before I finished making my peony!

Debbie Lock

Thank you again Suzanne for not only your amazing ability to teach me how to make beautiful flowers but also the encouragement and support to find my confidence to continue my journey with learning to make as many different flowers as possible. 

Rebecca Neave

I never would have dreamed I could produce something so pretty and delicate. With Suzy’s help, it was a breeze… And such a pleasure to work on!
