I'm Silvia; my work is researcher at the Faculty of Engineering of Palermo but my passion is another ... the Cake Design!
The passion for drawing and art in general has accompanied me since I was very small and as a child I was a big gluttonous of desserts.
About 10 years ago a sister of mine gave me a book on the little known in Italy world of Cake Design. It was a lightning: I started to make cakes decorated with the sugar paste for my twins and my family in general, using my manual skills and my imagination.
Gradually I came to know of other techniques (flowers in gum paste, pastillage, etc..) and it has become a way for me to be able to give each cake a character aimed at the person to whom it was dedicated.
Now, after many years, the books on the subject have multiplied and my abilities ... I think also!
I decided to spend more time to my passion and therefore I activated my own profile and my page on facebook: "Il Giardino delle Torte (di Silvia Costanzo)". I hope you like it!
