A stunning wedding cake is the pièce de résistance for your wedding in Italy and this divine cake designer based in Tuscany has the craft to create an awe-inspiring finale to your Italian wedding reception.

Sugarcups cake design belongs to a sweetie:  Marisa Vitali is half Italian and half South African, based in Tuscany and one day she listened to her heart and dropped everything she was doing … and started baking!  Good thing for all you lovebirds getting married in Italy!

Marisa shares her story: ‘My first big dream was to be a musician, I actually wanted to be a pianist but I settled for becoming a soprano, travelling around Italy and performing in beautiful opera houses, like the Arena di Verona.’

Once children came along she took a break from travelling for work and then one day she got inspired. ‘Like a lot of people, I loved watching cooking shows and I was hooked when I saw a show on cake design.  That was it!’

She started designing cakes, cookies, cupcakes and other goodies for friends and family, and the rest is history.  But the big question is:  does she sing while she bakes and if so, which opera? 🙂
