Just a few words about me...I was born in Germany where I lived for 21 years. As a young girl I discovered my passion for baking, handcraft and any kind of decoration - I was a very creative child ! As I got elder my creativity turned into a silent passion as I had only very little time sharing myself between university and job, and later on children and family.
Finally, in 2006/07, by a fortunate combination of circumstances, I started combining both, baking and creativity which soon gave me many opportunities in Italy, where cake design was just in the early stages.
People appreciated my cakes and the demand grew more and more. Thanks to the internet, facebook and other social networks, my cake creations, my designs - especially for wedding cakes and figure modelling - became more and more popular. It was such a sudden and unexpected success - a kind of Blessing!
In 2011 I was asked to teach during one of the main cake design events in Bologna (Italy) and later on all around Italy, Germany, Spain and Portugal. The year after, I started a cooperation for almost two years with the main italian cake design magazin who published many of my inedited step-by-step creations and finally opened my own bakery/cake studio in Bisacquino (PA)/Sicily-Italy, where I currently live.
I still travel several times a year in order to teach my projects abroad - and, I think, this is the best part in this job: when passion, creativity and culture meet for an inner personal growth.
Thank you for reading!
