My passion for baking began as a kid. I grew up with a health food Mom (you know what I mean, carob chip cookies and nut burgers). From almost sheer deprivation an outrageously over-developed sweet tooth was born. But on special occasions I got to express my deep love of all things sweet and mastered a perfect holiday pumpkin pie by age 7 and a Chocolate Gateau by age 10. In my continued pursuit to satisfy that beastly sweet tooth, my first job in high school was as a cake decorator at your friendly local “31 Flavors”. Though I did learn some basic decorating skills, my fondest memories were of creating decadent Sundays and shakes. With the beast satisfied, I headed off to college to follow my passion for creativity and pursue fine art at the University of Texas at Austin. There I strove for some mastery of light, color and design by working primarily in 2 dimensions, painting, drawing, silkscreen, etc. while concurrently serving as the pastry chef for a local Austin restaurant. Post undergrad I again followed my bliss into a 3rd generation Mom and Pop bakery shop. This is where I got really serious about the sacred art of baking. Boots and Diana not only welcomed me into their family, they taught me the tools of the wedding cake trade, icing, building and decorating wedding and special occasion cakes. Meanwhile my personal artistic medium shifted to the 3rd dimension and I found expression through pottery, a world in which I love to explore form and sculpture, and where I enjoy the ability to create functional works of art.
Now, cake actually has it all as an artistic medium - it is painting, it is sculpture, and if done properly, it is a gustatory delight. I love to collaborate with the client on a vision for your cake and have so much fun bringing that vision to your table. Decorations are done with flowers, fruits, nuts, ribbon, powdered sugar, cocoa, tinted sugar, fondant and buttercream. But as focused as I am on manifesting your aesthetic in cake, I am unwilling to sacrifice taste in the process. Your cake is meant to be a delight, a moment of pure pleasure for your guests. I will work with any cake flavor, icing and filling combination you can dream up. As things tend to come full circle and I embrace my inner health nut (thanks Mom), all organic, gluten free and vegan options are available. I can’t wait to work with you on creating a cake that is an absolute feast for the senses.
