Hi and welcome to Leonor's Sweet Creations!
Here you can learn everything about cakes and desserts. Not only can you take courses with us, where you learn how to make and decorate the most beautiful cakes of your life, but you can also receive many delicious recipes and learn many tricks and tips, through our blog and our social media, such as Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Youtube.
Our most recent project is the transformation of traditional recipes into healthy desserts and cakes. Yes, you've heard it correctly! Healthy desserts and cakes. Desserts that are made with high quality products full of nutrients that our body actually needs, instead of empty calories and pure fat. All of this, without losing flavor and consistency. It has been a hard journey to reach success, but I'm mostly pleased with the results. Soon, we will launch this course so that everyone can enjoy some delicious desserts, even those allergic to gluten, lactose, eggs, or following a strict diet like diabetic, vegan, keto, paleo or any other sort of diet. After all, we all deserve to sweeten our lives, totally guilt free. I am super excited about this project!
More about me?
I am originally Portuguese. But I've been around the world and lived in many countries. Initially, I studied International Relations, and specialized in development projects, which led me to live in Italy, Germany, New York, New Zealand and Australia. But halfway through my career I fell in love with a German and started a family.
It was then, that 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 and a passion for me.
More about Leonor's Sweet Creations?
Leonor's Sweet Creations was established in March 2012 in Heidelberg, Germany as a shop for cupcakes, macarons, cookies and decorated 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 Leonor's Sweet Creations Cake Academy, thus expanding the workshops offer.
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, I've 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.
The most exciting project for me right now, is the transformation of traditional dessert recipes into healthy ones, not losing their flavor or consistency. I have been exploring, experimenting and discovering the many wonderful advantages of Functional Confectionery and I am astonisehd how delicious and nutritious healthy desserts can be. I have therefore enlarged my course and recipe offer, so that you can choose which type of recipes and courses you want to try and learn more about: traditional or healthy dessert recipes.
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,
