Cake Decorator, Gelatin Artists, Teacher, and Coach. I was born in Venezuela and currently live in Lisbon, Portugal.

Fourteen years ago, I started this path as a Cake Designer and Gelatin Artist, out of curiosity and necessity however my true passion is teaching and I´ve been a teacher for more than 20 years.

Bringing my two passions together I started teaching gelatin decoration and 3D gelatin art in Portugal in 2013, as well as Cake Design and Sugar Paste Modeling, and everything ended up creating my online school The Art Cake School

As much as I love to teach, I also love bringing the cake community around the world together as one through true friendship, helping others, and learning from one another, and for that, I am the administrator and creator of Cake Friends Stay Creative online community on Facebook, which now has over 6000 members from around the world.

My work has been featured in many cake decoration magazines, I am the official representative of By Bora Cake Star Competition in Portugal, I have participated and won awards in international cake competitions, organize and participated in many international cake collaborations, and you can follow my work on social media and on my YouTube channel

I found that the way I can help my cake community is through coaching programs specially tailored for us. The Art Cake School has now a customized coaching program specially design, for cake decorators, sugar artists, and bakers. The idea is to help them be organized, informed and to use social media platforms for their cake businesses.

I am so happy to have you here with me and I can´t wait to share these courses with you and help you in this sweet journey.
