Monday 2nd April 2018
For the third year running, a group of extremely talented sugar artists from around the world have created and contributed unique pieces to help support World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd.
The sugar artists have taken inspiration from a range of areas including paintings made by artists on the autism spectrum, and from loved ones and others.
New for 2018, a fashion-themed category has been included in the Sugar Art for Autism collaboration, inspired by fashion designers who are on the autism spectrum as well as designers whose collections were inspired by their autistic children.
Many of the cake decorators involved in the collaboration have family members or friends who are on the autistic spectrum, and others have worked closely with children and/or adults with ASD.
There are also some cake decorators involved who have returned after taking part in earlier campaigns because they have become emotionally involved with the collaboration, while newcomers this year were keen to take part because they recognised the importance of raising awareness, and more importantly want to make a difference in the lives of those who are on the autism spectrum.
You can find out more about Sugar Art for Autism and the cake decorators involved on the Sugar Art for Autism Facebook page.
Below we have some examples of pieces created for the collaboration, using Renshaw products:
