I am a custom cake and cookie artist located in Toronto, Canada who specializes in celebration cakes, sculpted cakes, and custom sugar cookies. My love of baking began in high school but I have always had a passion for the arts.
After high school, I took a course at Bonnie Gordon College of Confectionary Arts. There I learned how to combine my love of baking with my creative artistic abilities. After completing the course with great distinction, I began working at Bonnie Gordon College alongside artists I had admired for years.
I have worked as a cake designer in multiple bakeries in Toronto, but chose to run my own custom cake business so I could freely explore my creativity. When I am not creating custom cakes for clients, I teach baking and cake design at Humber College.
I am a multi-award winning cake artist, taking home 1st place in the first cake competition I entered and 2nd place in the second cake competition I entered. I have created custom confections for many celebrities including Hilary Duff, Matthew Koma, AQUA, Priyanka (The winner of Canada's Drag Race), and Dustin Pedroia of the Boston Red Sox.
You can find my work in magazines, such as WedLuxe, Cake Masters and American Cake Decorating. I have also competed on Food Network Canada's newest cake show, The Big Bake!
