I have been teaching cake design and pastry for many years now on a professional level, both in Italy and abroad worldwide.
I always thought there was too much distance between the world of classic pastry on one hand and artistic decoration on the other. A sort of rivalry between the two sectors whereby if you do well in one you cannot do well in the other.
And I also think that modern cake design to be taken more seriously must make a qualitative leap, based on solid technical and scientific foundations.
I hope with my contribution to help people bridge this gap.
