Hi! And welcome!


You're here because you want to know more about me and Leonor's Sweet Creations, right? So here it goes:


I am Portuguese, but at the end I am a true citizen of the world. I studied International Relations, specializing in development projects, which led me to live in Italy, Germany, New York, New Zealand and Australia. Halfway through my journey, I fell in love with a German and raised a family there.


In Germany, I discovered the wonderful world of Cake Design and decided to take on my creative and gourmet side. After all, discovering, learning and trying new things has always been an addiction for me.


Leonor’s Sweet Creations was created in March 2012 in Heidelberg, Germany, as a shop for decorated cupcakes, macarons, cookies and cakes.


In 2013, I started giving Workshops. Several newspapers, magazines and blogs wrote about me and Leonor's Sweet Creations, and I was invited to several television programs. I’ve tried, baked, designed and decorated thousands of cupcakes, Macarons, Cake Pops, cookies and customer made cakes.


In 2014, I expanded my team and created the Cake-Academy, thus expanding the offer of Workshops.


In 2015, we partnered with wedding planners and some photographers and decorated dozens and dozens of beautiful and elegant wedding cakes.


In 2016, I started a YouTube channel, where weekly I give recipes and creative ideas and teach professional techniques to make and decorate all kinds of sweets. I also started posting regularly on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram, thus sharing our creations with the world.


In 2017, we decided to concentrate only on our Cake academy classes and expand the Youtube channel to English and Portuguese.


2020 was the annus horribilis. From March onwards, although we had almost all classes sold out, we had to cancel all of them, due to the Covid 19 pandemic. I’ve then launched a series of videos with healthy recipes on YouTube and Instagram. After all, life always has 2 sides and nobody lives only on sweets, right?


On the 01.01.2021, we launched our new website, expanding our classes offer to an online class regime. This way, we hope to continue to be able to teach and be present at your events and in your culinary day-to-day, despite all odds.


For me, and my team, it is a joy and a privilege to be able to share our creative and delicious world with thousands of curious people and sweet toothed artists!


Have a sweet and very happy day!
