Sarah Brown and Julie Eady, both hail from England, are skilled in baking, cake decorating and sugar artistry. Mrs. Brown ran her own cake decorating business in England before coming to Thailand. Since September 2013 they began teaching bakery skills and then developed a non-profit training programme called The Baking Project, with a passion to empower Thai women that have been given the opportunity to leave behind situations in which they were vulnerable and at risk, enabling them to reach their full potential.
Whilst in training each trainee has to achieve the highest professional standards in food & hygiene accredited by the British City & Guilds and Food Hygiene Asia, excellent skills in bakery and sugar crafting to graduate and receive certification. They then have the opportunity to work in the non-profit bakery called Sweet Retreat, where they can continue to grow in confidence.
The first team of graduates have come a long way; initially having no skills in baking and no knowledge about sugar artistry, but now they are professional bakers in their own right.
Sarah & Julie are really proud and humbled by them. It has been very encouraging to see the women begin to take ownership in the bakery, great pride in their work and look truly honoured as people compliment them about their work. A great leap forward as they are recognized for their amazing abilities, without the stigma from their past.
Sweet Retreat is just over 1-year-old, however the bakery is fast becoming known for their amazing creativity and sugar artistry as the word spreads around Bangkok of their increasingly popular custom made Designer Cakes.
