“I use Icing Images’ iDesigns™ and Sweet Accents with Isomalt to create centerpieces, sugar toppers and to float designs between layers of sugar. The design possibilities are truly endless with these innovative products.” – Peggy Tucker
A new Sweet Accents kit, the Peggy Tucker Edition, now bears Tucker’s name and reflects her preferred choices of embossing folders and die cutters packaged with the Sweet Accents system, the only food-safe die cutting and embossing system on the market. Tucker, known for her work in blown and pulled sugar, frequently pairs cut-outs created with the system with Isomalt.
Tucker, aptly dubbed America’s sweetheart of sugar by cake artists, has been instructing students in the art of cake decorating since 1999, specializing in sugar creations made with Isomalt. She has brought Isomalt to the forefront in the cake decorating industry by structuring her classes for every skill level. Tucker’s teaching techniques led to the development of pre-cooked Isomalt in the form of sticks, manufactured by Cake Play. The easy-to-use sticks facilitated the use of Isomalt by professional and hobby cake decorators.
Tucker travels internationally to teach and judge cake competitions, occasionally participating as a competitor. Her accolades include numerous awards of her own.
Peggy is an acting member of the following clubs: ICES (International Cake Exploration Societe), 3 C's (California Cake Club), San Diego Cake Club and Texas Cake Club. She has been featured on local Rochester News stations, in the Rochester Woman Magazines, Fox News, Food Network, ICES Newsletters and in several cake decorating magazines, including American Cake Decorating.
