About Me

Hello there! I’m Lisa Tu, your Sweet Botanics buttercream florist instructor. As a lifelong lover of all things sweet and beautiful, I have dedicated myself to mastering the art of buttercream floral decoration. With years of deep appreciation for the delicate beauty of flowers, I have honed my skills to create stunning edible works of art.

My journey as a buttercream florist began when I discovered my love for baking and decorating cupcakes during Sydney’s lockdown 2021. I was captivated by the endless possibilities that buttercream offered in creating intricate floral designs.

Through countless hours of practise in the evenings and experimentation, I have developed my own unique style that combines the beauty of nature with a touch of whimsy. I believe that every cupcake should tell a story, and I strive to create designs that evoke joy, wonder and a sense of enchantment.

Teaching others the art of buttercream floral decoration is a true passion of mine. As a former primary school teacher, I find immense joy in sharing my knowledge and seeing the creativity blossom in my students. Guiding you through the process of creating your own stunning floral cupcakes is a privilege, and I am committed to providing a supportive and inspiring environment for you to learn and grow.
