I started my "cake decorating" experience in 2010 attending some classes in UK with Vivian Lee, Eddie Spence, Carlos Lischetti, Paddi Clark and Alan Dunn.
I've been teaching cake decorating since 2011
Exhibitor and tutor since the first edition of the “Cake Design Italian Festival” in Milan.
In 2013 I was contacted by the national television (RAI) and I joined the team of tutors of the program “Detto Fatto” broadcast on RAI 2 from April to July 2013 by recording 18 episodes.
Meanwhile I started to carry on the dream of writing a book about royal icing as there where nothing similar in Italy and I was willing to spread this acient art with people.
By partnering with Chiriotti Editori I published the “Manuale della ghiaccia reale” in November 2014.
In 2015 I was part of the judges in the competition “Glamour Italian Cakes” SIGEP Rimini, one of the major cake design competitions in Italy.
I was a judges in many competitions in 2015.
I collaborated with several companies and schools in Italy.
Thanks to the classes planned in my academy I learned many different techniques by artists like Kathleen Lange, Kristina Rado, Mary Torte, La Belle Aurore, Silvia Mancini, Tommaso Bottalico, Laura Saporiti, Antonella Di Maria, Barbara Regini.
In 2017 I was inspired by canvas made with stucco and palette knife and transferred it to the cake decorating using edable colors and royal icing. I called this technique "Materika"
I work as an International royal icing tutor worldwide.
