Caroline Khoo founded online desserts boutique Nectar and Stone in 2013 when her talent for baking and presenting incredible cakes and sweets became so apparent that her friends and family encouraged her to pursue it as a career. Caroline's background in the fashion industry gave her concepts, styling and photography a unique and easily identifiable personality. Inspired to push the creative boundaries of dessert design, she translated her soft, feminine aesthetic into a successful business and a hugely popular online platform. Nectar and Stone has been featured in various print publications and on websites such as Martha Stewart and Apartment Therapy, and its ever-growing profile has led to several international brand collaborations.
