Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was filled with fun and plenty of celebrations.
I have some incredibly pretty cakes to share with you today from Coco Cakes in Victoria. Here is what the incredibly passionate Santhiago told us about how she became to be a magician in the kitchen.
How long ago did you find your passion for creating beautiful cakes?
From a very young age, I discovered my passion for art. As a result, I attended arts school in Brazil for 2 years and began painting and drawing as a hobby. Following this I attended Gastronomy school for 2 years to become involved with commercial cookery. Cooking was also a passion of mine and so I worked as a chef in many restaurants across Melbourne for 6 years. In 2011 I decided I could combine both my passion for food and arts to create cakes. My vision was to create cakes that were not only delicious to eat but also made a visual statement.
How long have you had your business?
I initially began creating cakes for friends and family in 2011. After all the feedback I received I officially opened Coco Cakes in the beginning of 2012
What is the most popular flavour of cake from your customers.
Our most popular flavour is red velvet with vanilla butter cream filling. Another flavour our customers like to come back for is our mud cake with Baileys butter cream filling.
