Like most kids, following mum around the kitchen as she baked and waiting for the opportunity to lick the bowl afterwards, was Skye’s first motivation for cooking sweets. These days things haven’t changed too much and Skye’s warmth, infectious smile and desserts to die for saw her become a much loved household name after her 6 months of hard work on the second series of ratings juggernaut MasterChef Series 2. Her great passion for culinary adventures and years working as a graphic designer paid off as Australia watched her create stunning sweets made with creativity and flair.
Since her time on MasterChef where she became known as the dessert queen, Skye has delighted Australia with her dessert business Wild Sugar. Skye’s philosophy is all about creating balance with the way you eat. So of course it’s all about indulgence with gorgeous naughty desserts for sure (they are essential at times!), however if we learn how to create healthier desserts which you see in the “Health Nut” chapter of her first book Wild Sugar Desserts, you can spoil yourself more often. These are stunning sweets using low GI sugar substitutes such as fruit and healthier ingredients to take care of your taste buds while you take care of your body.
Her desserts are a celebration of the naughty gene that lives within all of us. She is also passionate about creating balance by treating and nurturing in ways that serve us well. From recipes made from healthy ingredients to gratifying chocolate laden desserts, you’ll find a sweet treat from Wild Sugar Desserts to put a smile on your face. The dessert queen loves to share her desserts as she attends personal and tv appearances including The Circle, Mornings on Nine, The Morning Show Channel 7, Everyday Gourmet and is incredibly excited to share her stunning first book Wild Sugar Desserts. Skye’s sweets are a leaping treasure trove of pleasures, so dig in and enjoy. Life is a wild ride. Sweets remind us to smile.
