About Us

Hi, I am Karen Phillips. I am the owner and head cake decorator for Sweet Cakes by Karen. I started my love for decorating cakes when I was very young and in the 4-H program.

I have always made cakes for family and friends. I moved to the St. George area in 1996 and love the people and the friendships that I have made. In 1999 I took all three Wilton courses. When Michaels came to town, the Wilton Headquarters called and asked me to teach their classes.

I have been a member of ICES (International cake exploration society) since 2003, and love going to their yearly convention. I continue to learn new techniques whenever I can. Some that I have trained with include, Nicholas Lodge, Kerry Vencent, Norman Davis, Zane Beg, Kathy Scott, Chef Chris Hanmer and many others.  I love to take ideas and turn them into something special.
