Reva is a life long baker, starting out like most of us as the “go to” source for Sweets within her family. As a graduate of the distinguished California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, she has studied both as a student and an instructor. In 2002 Reva, after years of lending her talents to others, officially launched her own cake and pastry business, Merci Beaucoup. Calling on her Connections in the Los Angeles area, she developed a glowing reputation as a high end cake decorator, supplying cakes across California and beyond. Her efforts landed her on three seasons of the television show “Amazing Wedding Cakes” an experience that has opened up many wonderful opportunities to share her skills with the cake community and become a trusted name in the sugars arts.
Besides her time on AWC, Reva’s work has been featured in Brides Magazine, Wedding Bells, People Magazine and many local publications and her work has been seen of E entertainment, Food Network UK, and Style Network. and recently featuring on Duff Goldman’s new series “Duff till Dawn” and "Cake Wars" where she was part of the winning team on Food Network. Reva’s fun, whimsical and award winning style is the result of her personality, a true cake decorator who’s goal is always to make people smile, a feat she has accomplished from L.A. to New York to Atlanta and all across the United States! Entering a new faze of Merci Beaucoup, Reva has taken on new challenges; moving her operations to the wine country of Northern California, writing books, and expanding her teaching efforts.
To sum it up in her own words, Reva is a “cake nerd.” #mercicakes #cakenerd all social media platforms @mercicakes
