Alan Tetreault
Chef Alan Tetreault began his cake decorating career at the age of 13. After successfully completing a Wilton Master Decorator Two-week course at the age of 14, Alan launched his cake business from home and was making wedding cakes every weekend. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 1979 with Highest Honors and went on to work in hotels and restaurants as a pastry chef and restaurant manager. From 1985 to 1993 Alan operated his own full scale retail bakery specializing in European pastry and decorated cakes. At the age of 33, Alan made a career change and completed his degree in Music Education at the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, graduating Magna Cum Laude in pipe organ and voice. After teaching for a few years, Alan made the decision to return to his passion of cake decorating and started Global Sugar Art in 2002. The website was an instant success due to his personal knowledge of decorating that he was so willing to share through tutorials and his detailed attention to customer service. Chef Alan created the art of Crystal Flowers in 2009 and was invited to share his talents as the International Guest Artist at the 2010 NEC Cake Craft & Decoration Convention in Birmingham, England.
Alan was the first non-British citizen invited back to the NEC convention in 2011 & 2012 to judge the sugarart competiton. Alan has produced numerous YouTube video's and DVD's on Crystal Flowers, cake decorating techniques and chocolate candy making and continues to post new videos.
I try to create my cakes so that they are visually appealing as well as appetizing," states Tetreault. "My greatest challenge is to use ordinary cutters and tools to create new designs, borders or flowers that have never been seen before. "Alan continues to travel extensively to judge and teach at cake competitions and conventions as well as search for new tools, ideas and techniques from all regions of the world. "After 40 years of decorating,"says Tetreault, "the passion is still there."

The Development Corp, 18 June 2013 [cached]
Global Sugar Art Owner Alan Tetreault said he will be moving from the present location on Route 3 to 20,000 square feet of space on Military Turnpike in November. Both locations are in The Development Corporation's Air Industrial Park.
"They are renovating the interior and exterior for us right now," he said.
The company has more than 9,000 cake, cooking and candy-making products and supplies available and sends orders to 140 countries around the world. The company is shipping 300 to 600 orders a day.
"We have everything. If they make it, we have it," Tetreault said.
The new location will allow for a re-organization of the pick-n-pack operation. It will involve the use of scanners and have the most popular products positioned for easiest access.
Tetreault said he and two other cake designers record on-line tutorials.
"We teach customers how to decorate free of charge on the Internet," Tetreault said.
The company is also on Facebook. Its following there is even larger, Tetreault said.
"They will all be created just for us," Tetreault said.
Orders are taken by phone at 800-420-6088 or 561-3039, fax at 561-3043, email at or online at Most orders received before 3 p.m. are shipped the same day, Tetreault said.
The sugar craft business is booming worldwide, Tetreault said.
"We see kindergartners interested in this," he said.
He's also seen a lot of retirees who are taking part. Tetreault believes the increased interest comes from the instant gratification of being able to play with food to create a delicious, beautiful product.
Tetreault opened Global Sugar Art and Party Supplies in Skyway Plaza in 2002. The party-supply side of the business took off rapidly, he said, so he changed the name to Alan's Party Supply, but continued to run Global Sugar Art as a Internet-based business.
The businesses moved to Plattsburgh Plaza in late 2004. Tetreault sold the party-supply business in November 2007 and opened a retail location for Global Sugar Art on the other side of the plaza the next month.
The business continued to grow, with the result it outgrew the space within six months. That prompted the move to the current location in Air Industrial Park.
The company has continued to grow even in tough economic times. Tetreault said things people can do at home tend to increase at those times.
"This was a pretty recession proof business," he said.
Global Sugar Art no longer allows customers to come to the business to buy products for liability issues, Tetreault said.
The company now has 24 employees, up from just two when Tetreault started the business. That includes customer service, accounting, graphic design and warehouse workers.
"We have a really dedicated staff," he said.
There is a full-time marketing and business-development department based on Wall Street in New York City. They visit Plattsburgh every two weeks.
According to the Global Sugar Art website, Tetreault began his cake-decorating career when he was 13 years old. He completed a Wilton Master Decorator two-week course the next year and was soon making wedding cakes every weekend.
Tetreault graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 1979 and went on to work in hotels and restaurants.
Tetreault has judged at prestigious contests such as the NEC Cake Craft and Decoration Convention in Birmingham, England, and the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show in Tulsa, Okla. He also teaches around the world as well.
"I do a great deal of travelling," he said. "This year I will go to South Africa, Mexico and possibly Portugal."
He said the company has really made a name for itself in 10 years. That's evident by some of the product reviews on the website.
"Our name has a lot of power. It is recognized by a lot of people," Tetreault said.
