Ana resides in Connecticut with her husband and their three children, splitting her time between her two Connecticut wedding cake studios, and wherever her wedding cake assignments take her. Ana combines her two life-long passions, baking and fine arts, to create confectionery masterpieces that taste as exquisite as they look.
Fond of baking from a very young age, Ana studied graphic design, and then painting at the National School of Fine Arts in her native Lima, Peru, before moving to Japan (the home of her ancestors), where she worked in a French bakery.
After moving to the US, Ana turned her full attention to studying her craft, learning from the finest sugar artists, and perfecting her baking skills at The Culinary Institute of America. Having mastered the basics of wedding cake design, sugar flower creation, and other decorating techniques, Ana quickly gained recognition in her field, earning awards and developing her own techniques and personal style, which continue to evolve.
Ana strives to advance awareness of the sugar arts while passing on her expertise, through teaching, mentoring, and lecturing throughout the year to diverse audiences. See the schedule of up-coming CT wedding cake classes.
