An introduction from our founder

My name is Lesi Lambert and I am a sugar artist.

I personally have created numerous sugar pieces and edible artworks for the private sector as well as corporate functions. My artworks have varied in size and have fed anywhere from 15 – 1000 people per artistic piece.

My company, Lambert Academy of Sugar Craft, regularly holds group workshops teaching all aspects of cake design and pastry art. Two years ago, I launched a five-week intensive certification program helping aspiring cake artists build specific skills to this craft, giving them the knowledge and tools to set up their own businesses in the industry of cake design.

Lambert Academy has the honor of making the Icing Smiles 500th cake for a very excited young boy!

Icing Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. We understand that the simple things, like a birthday cake, are luxuries to a family battling illness. Our goal is to create a custom cake for the ill child, or their sibling, that provides a temporary escape from worry and creates a positive memory during a difficult time.
