Jan Clement-May started sugarcrafting in 1995 after being inspired by a novelty cake book. Having originally qualified as a graphic designer, Jan applied her artistic talent and creative flair to cake decorating and began to make cakes for her two children, as well as for other family members and friends. In 2001, she set up The Too Good to Eat Company from home and shortly afterwards began to contribute projects to Cakes & Sugarcraft magazine.
Since then, Jan has become a tutor at the Squires Kitchen International School, has established herself as a popular contributor to Cakes & Sugarcraft magazine and continues to run her successful cake-making business. She has written four other titles, Merry Christmas Cakes, Bob the Builder™ Celebration Cakes, Squires Kitchen’s Guide to Making Sugar Animals and Squires Kitchen’s Guide to Making Sugar Figures, as well as contributing to the award-winning book, The Art of Sugarcraft (B. Dutton Publishing Ltd.).
