9 Cake Artists Who Have Perfected Their Cake Craft

It’s another mundane work day, so you drag yourself to work. You haven’t had breakfast and both your esteem and your energy are running low. You force yourself through the office door, greet your coworkers around you, and plop into your seat. As you turn on your computer monitor a coworker leans over to whisper, grinning, “There are cookies in the kitchen. Home-baked!” Suddenly this knowledge brings your day out of the ordinary. You nod, resuming your cool and faking nonchalance, then as soon as no one’s watching you power-walk to the kitchen.

Bakers are incredible! A little homemade sugary something can really strengthen my day. I don’t have 1/10 of the talent that they have, so I do what everyone does nowadays when they want to accomplish something vicariously: watch tutorials for hours on end. Out of all the baking videos out there I find cake baking the most satisfying, because if you’re skilled and patient enough you can get the cake to resemble anything you want. After perhaps two hours (per night) of binge-watching tutorials for months, I feel now like I have perfected the art of cake-making. I know everything about it: what types of spatula to use, how to drape fondant over your cake, etc. I know how to stack tiers of 8-inch round cakes and carve them into the shape you want; what fondant even is and how to support heavy cake.

I’d try the recipes at home, if only I weren’t so busy watching these videos…

Here are nine cake artists who have perfected their cake craft:
