Think you can resist anything if you really want to? I dare you to resist this CBP!


With a small nudge from her brother and a resurfaced passion for making sweets, Nevindi Senanayake gave birth to Sugar Nugar with her infamous chocolate biscuit pudding.  Wanting to be a bit adventurous, she turned to cakes and decided to get her hands covered in butter icing which turned out to be the best decision she ever made. Giving her cakes an extra flair with fresh flowers, her perfectly edged buttercream cake hit the charts in no time. Planning to venture towards the wedding industry, Nevindi is now mastering the art of getting a two-tiered cake just perfect while managing her very own cafe at Nivasa, a boutique hotel in the heart of Colombo.
