My name is Raffaella Tomaselli and I am the owner of Dolce Sorpresa which in Italian means Sweet Surprise, a residential bakery located in down town Groton Ma.
I have always loved baking since I was a little girl. I still remember baking and decorating with my grandmother who taught me the sense/science behind the beautiful and tasteful cakes.
I wanted to share my love for baking and since I love crafts and any kind of art I went into another world when I realized I could combine the two passions of my life! This is how I started my cake journey and I haven't stopped since then. I have self taught myself all that I know today and I am constantly improving and finding ways to challenge my skills.
On the 22nd of March 2013 I won a Spring Baker Competition on Facebook. I participated with three mini teacups all made in sugarpaste. I just loved the idea to put the tiny cups on top of cupcakes so I send my picture and after 199 votes I won the competition! It was a fantastic moment and I thank all those that were involved with their support and effort.
