Pirikos Cake Design
“Pirikos Cake Design”, formed by a couple: Catarina Taborda and Luís Gaspar, former Geographer and Architect from Portugal started in October 2011.
While planning the 1st anniversary of our youngest son, we decided to organize and decorate all the birthday party, including the cake, an ex-libris of any party!
It all started then!
Our connections to the arts, decorating, theater, dance, sculpture and architecture were the foundation for embarking on such adventure. he creations are fully prepared together.
Each project is worked to detail, from idea to conception. Both the shape, the color scheme and structure are thought out and planned before moving to production.
Fans of a "clean" style, we try to implement in every work both harmony and logic, along with creativity.
We strive for harmony of the senses, from the sublime palate to the startling visual.
In a single sentence as a motto: Flavor with Imagination!
Raewyn discovered her passion for Cake Decorating when she made her youngest daughters 1st birthday cake utilising the strong base of art and design knowledge she had honed through years of creative pursuits.
That first attempt very quickly led to being published in Cake Central Magazine, Cake Masters Magazine and Sweet Magazine. She has been awarded such honours as being included in the Australian Cake Decorating Networks Favourite Australian Decorators 2014 Calendar, CakesDécor Decorator of the Week several times, Edible Artist and CD Editors Choice.
Raewyn is currently Editor of the Cakes Décor Gazette, teaches cake decorating classes in her studio in Sydney, makes YouTube tutorials and runs a successful Facebook page with a fan base of 130k and growing. She is able to create using a variety of mediums but is mostly known for her figure modelling and original design concepts.
Antonio's kitchen is his studio, his cakes - are his artworks, each one is unique and his designs are one of a kind. He is based in Phoenix, Arizona USA and has been featured in esteemed magazines such as Cake Central and Sweet Magazine. He has done extensive collaborative work.
His style is contemporary and involves painting and drawing on fondant, another medium that he always uses is wafer. He likes using it because of it's versatility and no drying time required compared to gum paste. Because Antonio wants his cakes to look different, his inspiration comes from somewhere else than what you'd find in a cake magazine.
"My greatest passion in life is art, next is food, right now I can really say that I am enjoying what I do, I am doing this as a part-time means of living but my goal is to really do this full time because with this craft I am not only making a living, I am actually making a life."
