Another Story, Another Stack, this month we introduce the talented Lucia Ramadan showcasing our Cloud 9 theme, which focuses on celebrating the people dearest to you and embracing true happiness and special bonds. We interviewed the lovely Lucia on her inspirations, special relations and her most treasured memories.
Lucia's career originally began with a pen to paper in architecture. Her creativity in baking was initially a hidden talent, a secret skill that she never imagined would have turned in to her having her own bakery business.
Based in London, Lucia creates adorable cupcakes, dream bespoke wedding cakes and a magical array of flavoured cakes for special occasions. Her excellent attention to detail and exquisitely designed cakes is what got Lucia to be featured in The Dorchester, The Savoy, Claridge's and now proud sellers in Harrods Food Hall.
What we learnt
Sweet Bea's Bakery was named after her niece Bella, which was the starting point of Lucia’s business adventure “I started making cupcakes when my niece Bella-Bea was born and did name my company after her but I am lucky enough to have two beautiful nieces and a nephew”. Although her schedule can be demanding at times, Lucia still manages to keep in constant touch with them throughout the week “I pick them up from school whenever I can, play with them and, of course, bake with them. They are special and unique in their own ways and I am so fortunate to have a bond with each of them”.
Just as our Aphrodite Heart charm attracts love and harmony, Lucia opens her heart and lets us into her most precious secret “My husband, even though he might never admit, is actually a romantic at heart... I would say the sweetest thing he's ever done for me was the way he proposed. He sent me on a treasure hunt all over London to our favourite places...each having white roses and the next clue. I finally found him in the place we had our first date, down on one knee”. Something I’m sure she will never forget and we are super jealous of.
When asked when her most memorable happy moments were so far, Lucia revealed about the time when she managed to secure Harrods as a client “It was something I always wanted to achieve from day one and I have to admit that I was quite proud of myself”.
As our Best Friends bangle represent lasting friendship, Lucia tells us she would give her last rolo/slice of pizza to her sister. “She has been my friend, my confidant and the person I can turn to no matter what” - it’s fair to say a sister’s bond is like no other.
