Leticia’s always had a creative touch. At twelve, she remembers winning a school Art show. At a young age her father thought it was a good idea for her and her two sisters to help their mother in the kitchen. Thus her passion for baking and cooking began.
With a background in Computer Graphics she co-founded Bold Image Graphics. After having her children she wanted more time with them. So she began, “It is Finished” a Faux and Mural paint decorating business.
In 2005, she moved to Inland Valley, bored without her family and friends she entered a Gingerbread contest. Making her first ever Gingerbread creation. She won first place! She traded her paint brushes for decorating bags and she’s been pursuing Sugar Art ever since.
She teaches baking and cake decorating in the Inland Valley.
>Leticia is currently pursuing her own business endeavor Lip Smacking Good. Offering a delicious variety of custom gourmet baked goods. And for Private and Corporate events the popular Cupcake Bar.
