Last weekend I taught another Haute Couture Class at the Bonnie Gordon College of Confectionery Arts last weekend. It was such a fun group of talented cake decorators and I enjoyed sharing my couture techniques with them and look forward to seeing their future successes in such a rewarding career.
I get asked a lot how long I’ve been creating cakes for (since some are surprised that The Caketress could be so young when meeting me). I’m 27 and been decorating for the last 8 years. I’m very grateful I’ve found one of my passions in life at an early age and even more thankful I am able to share my skills with students around the globe. However I have to dedicate my passion for being creative and artistic to my Mother. At a very young age she saw that the arts made me happy and pushed me into painting, sculpting, pottery, and anything creative she saw would fulfill my young soul. She passed on 12 years ago but I have continued to use my inspired soul and skills in dedication to her and the impact she had on my life.
Here’s a simply chic wedding cake with ruffles and pearls for a wedding at the Old Mil in Toronto. Enjoy!
