Hello, I’m Silvina Martinez, founder of Forget me not Sugar Art and I want to tell you that my true passion is making cakes, cupcakes, and cookies for any event. I discovered my great love for handmade flowers with buttercream and I want to make you happy creating beauties just for you. I love seeing the faces of happiness and amazement when people see their cake, that fills me with emotion.
I consider myself a very energetic, perfectionist, happy and fun person although sometimes I have those special days. I have always liked to help people to be happy and that is why I decided to study psychology and alternative therapies.
I am unstoppable and I like to learn new things constantly, to learn from each person and above all to know myself to know how to react in each situation.
I love metaphysics, the laws of the universe and understand how life really works and know that if you change everything will change for you.
My country of birth is Argentina, Salta the beautiful, also runs through my veins Spanish blood of my grandparents and my love for creative decoration was born in Cheltenham UK where I have been living for 6 years.
I love to go to cake fairs and enjoy the beauty of sugar and buy cutting, molds and everything wonderful that appears before my eyes.
I met amazing artists at the cake fair in Birmingham, such as Valerie and Christine, Rosie Cake-diva and David MacCarfrae.
Where cupcakes come from?
From the United States. Its literal translation is “cup cake”, in reference to the volume of work in its preparation. Although they appeared in the nineteenth century, the country has lived in recent years a real fever for these individual format cakes, unleashed largely after its publication in ‘Sex in New York’. Carrie and her friends not only teach the Americans that the cupcakes were great and cure any kind of disagreement with life, but it made them live the fantasy of not getting fat. The cupcake boom, with its cheerful, adorable and somewhat naïve decorations, is also related to taste and glamor and that is why it has played havoc with recent culture.
