"I firmly believe that you should have a little treat everyday. You never know when a mack truck could take you out and you shouldn't be living on some sad diet shake."
At the age of 8, I made my first loaf of bread from scratch and went on to make french toast with some of it. That was it. My love of baking was cemented into my life.
At 17 years old, I learned how to make and decorate cakes and I have never been able to get enough of it. I packed up my beloved Kitchen Aid and moved from Utah and headed to NYC and went to The French Culinary Institute where I graduated at the top of my Pastry Arts Class.
I love eating dessert just as much I love to create it. (I work out to eat, not necessarily to stay fit...). A very serious hobby of mine is to order every dessert on the menu, it's the best way to get to know the pastry chef at any restaurant.
I've worked along side the best in the industry, had cakes published in Brides and New York Magazine's while always making my own signature cakes on my own.
I make bespoke cakes for your special event, teach 'how to' cake decorating classes and host Food Tours in Nolita & Greenwich Village in New York in my spare time.
Need more of me? You can find me on The Cooking Channels "Unique Sweets" as well as a judge on The Food Networks "Sugardome" "King of Cones" "Beat Bobby Flay" "Bakers vs Fakers" and "Worst Cooks in America".
