Party on!!!


The best part of my job as a Cake Designer, is definitely having the opportunity of taking part in so many special days in people's life.. Couples promising eternal love to eachother, kids growing up, babies being born.. it's such a blessing to be able to collaborate in making all these events a bit sweeter.

These are some of the cakes I've been working on..












...Have a sweet week.. and Party on!!!

let them eat cake!!



last week, i had the great pleasure of spending a very sweet time with the dream makers of any bride.. the wedding planners!






luckily, i could connect with Evelyne Schaerer, the president of VUSH {Association of Independent Swiss Wedding Planners}, and founder of Your Perfect Day.  she helped me contacting some of her colleagues  {or should i say dream makers} ..and the most special and sweet night was born.






saying that it was only a tasting wouldn't be fair..






it was a time to walk togetehr the sweet roads of dark chocolate, vanilla beans and salty caramel.. an opportunity to speak the romantic language of weddings.. and a moment in time when the only thing that mattered was to feel, smell and eat cakes!























Have a sweet week everyone..

music to my ears..

the part i enjoyed the most during my pastry studies in chicago, was staging at Cake Chicago.  i did not only learn about techniques on cakes and pastries, but also, i learned an awful lot about work ethics, team work, and that there's no cakeing without music.. 

yeap!..

 you read it right!.. 

the first thing we would do when stepping into the kitchen was turning on the radio!

we would work weekly  in so many, and so different cakes, that it's nearly impossible for me to pick a favorite one..  however, since i'm such a sugar flowers lover, i must say that this orchid cake is the number 1 for me.

take a look..




 isn't it beautiful?


..there's always a cake that makes a chef work double shifts!.. Mary, from Cake Chicago had the vision, and at first we couldn't really see what she wanted to achieve with the design, but then.. it came to life.. and it was a total winner.




by the end of the year, and after spending afternoons and some Saturdays with Mary and the Cake Chicago team, i finally felt confident to design and work on my own cake for the final project of the course at The French Pastry School Chicago. 

..hope you like it as much as i did!




..i must say that now there are two kinds of music to me.. the one that plays in the radio; and the one that comes from the heart of a bride when she sees pure love expressed in a beautiful cake!


have a sweet one!

hello 2014!!

i don't know how you guys feel about this, but i still can't get over the fact that Christmas is over...

i consider myself such a Xmas junkie, that i spend the whole year thinking, dreaming and waiting for Christmas... Could it be because it's that time of the year when everybody gets into a love-mood?.. and who doesn't want to live in a love-world?

i know i do!

..so, for those of you that might feel the same way as me.. here are some sweet Christmas market pics for you to enjoy!
















...doesn't get any better than this... a kid, Santa, and a cupcake!!


have a sweet 2014!!
