Recientemente he lanzado un libro de artesania en azucar en colaboracion con Editora Lexus, con mis ultimas tecnicas y muchas fotos de hermosos trabajos."

Pioneering in modern sugarcraft art, Rosa Viacava began as a simple housewife eager to know deeply this Art. That´s why she became a self-taught investigator on all kinds of fondant, adapting them to the needs of the environment and the available supplies.

She began 25 years ago to give classes in its home and thanks its pledge and the knowledge that acquired, obtained in 1992 the resolution of the Department of Education to open its school, The Atelier of the Azucar. She directs this modern educational center, with all the comforts to carry out classes of the hands on type. At the end of each period, students can obtain a certificate vouched for by the Peruvian Department of Education. Thanks to that, graduates can have a certification that help them to dictate classes by its account or to be dedicated to work in this field. Rosa Viacava was invited as demonstrator on several peruvian cooking and bakery television shows, beginning with the famous peruvian show of Teresa Ocampo, pioneer on this field.

She presented bakery projects of her students, emphasizing on fine laces, drapes and a great quantity of delicate accessories, complemented with flowers of sugar, taken of the exotic botany.

She`s also active member of the British Sugarcraft Guild, British organization which invited her as demonstrator on the 2001 Convention at Telford, England, being the first latin-american in having that deference.
