How did you get into cake decorating: I have been baking since the age of 12 with my mom. Every week I baked a cake in all colors and flavors and had my family test it out. And I haven’t stopped baking yet.
Describe your winning cake, details, occasion, and techniques:
My style is very romantic and baroque. The details include sweet pastel colors and a lot of shades of gold. The cake was made for a winter Christmas photo shoot for Zoet & Zoet.
What was the inspiration behind this cake?
All the white shiny Christmas decorations I saw while I was shopping.
How long did it take?
A few hours.
What kind of cake is it on the inside?
It is actually a dummy cake, but if it were a real cake I would make white chocolate with fresh raspberries. I love the sweetness of the white chocolate with the sour of the fresh raspberries – they are perfect together.
Fun question, what do you do while you decorate cakes?
I listen to all kinds of music like soul, Latin and pop. While I decorate I love to switch it up, sometimes I even listen to Bulgarian pop music and Bollywood songs . . .
