Portuguese Tiles and Cakes

Hi, mates!

On this page I’m going to share with you some of my latest cake, cake pops and cupcake designs, and also some tips and trends to make your party a great success. I hope you like it!

But first, I’m going to tell a bit more about myself and why I chose Portuguese Tile to my display.

My name is Leticia Soares and I’m a brazilian publisher with a passion for cakes. I had my undergrad on Publishing and masters degree on Fine Arts, both on the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). Despite my background in arts and editing, I never considered myself a skillful person. “Art projects, only with Adobe platform”, as I would say.

But everything started to change when I decided to embrace my passion for cakes and cake decorating. I first started baking cupcakes, back in Brazil. My main goal was to develop some manual skills, entertain my friends and family with some great treats and enjoy myself. Didn’t took long before people began to ask me about catering and I stepped into business.

But everything REALLY changed when I decided to marry this awesome man. A Stanford student with whom I was happily long distance dating for over three years. We got married in July of 2014 and soon after that I moved to the US. Since we got here, I resumed my baking activities and decided to take them to the next level by taking classes and practicing a lot, having found among friends my best tasting subjects.

After receiving some positive feedback, I decided to share some of my flavors with the Stanford community, offering my services as a cake, cake pop and cupcake designer-baker. I’d love to share some special moments with you all, by giving a sweet touch to the party.

See you soon!


Oh! About the portuguese tile on the header… To test the technique of painted fondant, I have challenged myself to paint some tiles, really common in Brazil (because of our colonization history). The one in the header is one of my paintings, and it was inspired by my college walls. Below I present the original picture of the tiles.
