Andrea is a Southern California native. She put down roots in Portland over a decade ago and has been baking cakes and hiking the glorious mountains of the Pacific Northwest ever since. The kitchen has always been her home, but her first career was in music. She studied opera and performed throughout the States for many years, until she found herself longing for a sweeter life! Andrea earned her Classic Pastry Arts degree from the French Culinary Institute. She was then hired as a confectionary artist at Ron Ben-Israel Cakes in New York City where she honed her skills in cake decorating and the art of sugar flower making. While cake decorating and teaching are her passions, being a mom to two magical little girls is hands down her favorite job.
