where cake and art meet with limitless possibilities.......

Meet the Artist

Hi, my name is Karen.  I started out baking at the early age of 4 with my mother....if it had sugar in it, I was right there!  
My mother loves to tell the story of me, when at the age of 2, she found me on top of the freezer, eating the chocolate cake she had hidden from me!
Truthfully, I needed to bake due to an unquenchable sweet tooth!

 I graduated  the acclaimed Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY as a certified  pastry chef. I then toured the United States working with various pastry chefs at The Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC, The Loews Anatole Hotel in Dallas, TX, as well as working in West Palm Beach, FL, Greenwich, CT and New York City.

Working at The Mayflower Hotel as pastry chef, I decided to start my own business designing wedding cakes for brides& grooms who wanted both an artwork in cake & exquisite taste, whether a plain pound cake or a gourmet flavor with fresh coulis, mousse or ganache.
 I am a seasoned accomplished cake artist, with over 35 years of experience and still in love with my job!
 I welcome any cake challenge, from simple old fashioned, rustic buttercream cakes with fresh flowers to elegant cakes with hand made sugar flowers & intricate details; my desire is to surpass your expectations in both taste and art.
Expect the unexpected when it comes to our pairing of unique flavors.
