VICTORIA DE BEER
Our Lead Designer and quite inarguably our cake unicorn! Victoria began her career as a pastry chef and cake decorator a decade ago while attending Johnson & Wales University. She has worked in a variety of venues in South Florida and Cape Cod all the while gaining valuable experience. Her fondness for cake design can be attributed to a fairly artistic upbringing.
"My mother and father have always allowed me to be comfortable in my creativity. Having a background in fashion design and drafting, respectively, they both have keen eyes and a fondness for detail which I am grateful to have inherited. Kitchens can be such creative spaces. I have the pleasure of making commissioned works of art that are not at all serious. It's just cake and pastry, after all, and that's a wonderful thing."

Maribel is our Head Baker and one of the most crucial components of our team. A former accountant from Havana, Cuba she arrived to The States in August of 2014. One of her fondest childhood memories is of her walk to a local bakery to get her favorite pastry, masa real. A traditional Cuban dessert layered with dense cake and sweet guava filling. Maribel learned how to bake our recipes over months of training and her most rewarding moment is to see the final designs come to life knowing that she is a part of each cake and dessert that leaves our studio. We love our Maribel more than words can describe and there is only one of her!
