About the Faboo Cake Designer
“I started decorating cakes when I was 15 years old. With growing popularity of cake shows, ballroom dancing and Glee on TV, it was my hobby before it became “cool.” I was decorating cakes, Ballroom Dancing with my Mom on Thursday nights and President/Dance Captain of my show choir in High School. On a school night, I sculpted a cake of a woman’s torso with a fabulous red Cornelli lace bodice. It looked like Tyra Banks could have worn it down the Victoria Secret runway. I took classes from a local cake decorating supply store in my town with a bunch of old ladies and I actually loved it! I brought that torso cake to school- I thought it looked absolutely faboo and was very proud of it. I showed it off to the Home Ec. teacher and she love-love-loved it! 2nd period, I get sent to the principal’s office (I’ve always been a good boy)….I walk in and the P.E teacher and the rest of the staff were raving about it, especially since it was in the school’s colors. I got in trouble by the Principal, and he said that “It’s very well done and you have great talent, but it’s something I would bring home to my wife, not to Mrs. Kendricks.” I cried like a lil’ girl, but at that moment, I discovered that I had an unusual talent.
I’ve always had an eye for color and design, and whenever I would create something, it would just organically manifest and I’d get ridiculously excited when I completed a cake. I’m inspired by Fashion, Design, Pop Culture and all things beautiful. The cake decorating world has been stuck in a rut for years, with so called, “Whimsical” cakes and I felt like it was seriously time for something fresh and new. I know what I like and I’m not afraid to take chances.
I attended The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY and have studied from some of the greatest teachers in the Pastry and Cake industry such as, Bettie Van NorStrand and Dieter Schorner. I’m constantly inspired by beautiful things every day and continue to discover new techniques and mediums for modern wedding cakes and fabulous sweet sixteens’.
I am SO grateful to be living my dream as a cake designer. I look forward to making a Lush and faboo cake for each and every one of you!
