The elegant two-tiered magazine anniversary and Live with Flair luncheon cake was a sweet showstopper at the event.

Sugabuzz Ja was delighted to celebrate Flair’s 38 anniversary at the Live with Flair event that treated breast cancer warriors and other specially invited guests with sweet takeaways from the luncheon.

“I’m honoured to be a part of the Live with Flair initiative because it not only spreads breast cancer awareness but it honours the survivors. I love the idea of Flair celebrating their anniversary with this as well as breast cancer thrivers. And I enjoyed making the pastries,” said baking mastermind and owner of the dessert company, Suelan Evans.

Similar to previous stagings of Live with Flair, she was happy to take on the pastry mission. This year, it was requested that she make a pink velvet cake, marrying the finesse of the Flair brand with the widely celebrated hue of breast cancer awareness month.

Understanding the assignment, she created a mouthwatering cake boasting a fondant that represented the sweet strength of the breast cancer thrivers, as well as the longevity of the accomplished magazine.

“The flavour is pink velvet to complement the pink theme of the event. This cake was a similar one to the last staging of Live with Flair, back in 2019; a naked cake and I suggested pink roses with the white buttercream. I thought pink roses would give a nice elegant look this year,” she shared with Food.

The topper, also made by the established baker, was a remake of the merged Flair logo with the years of celebration in gold; in this instance, it was 38.

For the takeaway boxes, guests returned home with an array of desserts, including a pink velvet cupcake, a slice of apple rum bread pudding or the option of sugar cookies or macarons (baked by Le Macaron Pastries and Desserts Jamaica).

“Because dessert was already on the menu, takeaway boxes were requested. Not all of the boxes are the same, but there are three pieces of dessert in each box,” she added.
