After a number of years juggling a career, raising two young daughters, and making cakes on the side, Catherine recently made the decision to leave her graphic design career behind to pursue her passion for cake design full time. Catherine enrolled in Algonquin College’s Baking and Pastry Arts program where she built a solid base in baking theory. But the vast majority of her cake decorating skills are self-taught, acquired over years of practice and trial and error. Catherine continually strives to improve her skills and discover unique ways to make her designs come to life. She has recently discovered a passion for teaching, and hopes to expand her services to offering courses in Ottawa, Canada, where she and her family live. She is thrilled to be a regular contributor to SugarEd Productions Online School.
