Barely a year since he started working as a professional pastry artist and chef, Nick's creations have been featured numerous times in magazines and newspapers, and his edible works of art have graced the tables of celebrities and multiple guests.
While pursuing a degree in Sydney, what started as a hobby became a small side business, with Nick selling his popular cakes to friends, local cafes and to the rest of the world via the Internet. After graduating in digital media and working as a graphic designer, he soon realized that his true passion lies in baking, and was offered a place in the prestigious culinary arts school, Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa, Canada. He graduated with a diploma in patisserie, and also clinched the coveted top prize in a Christmas gingerbread house competition, beating out renowned hotels, patisseries and other well known culinary schools. The cherry on the cake was being specially requested by Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper to build a gingerbread house!
Before starting Cake Over Heels with co-owners Lesley Phay and Tricia Tjhin, Nick Ang was the former Creative Chef at 1-Caramel and headed its team in customizing cake designs. Starting COH (as it's affectionately known as to its regulars) is a culmination of his dreams, and allows him to express his creativity without boundaries.
