Viviana Zapata-Baker/Cake Decorator
My love for baking started when I was a little girl growing up in Chicago. I remember going into Roeser's Bakery for the first time to order my birthday cake. It was a magical moment for me as a kid and that is when I knew that this would be something that I would love to do. At the age of 10, my family moved to Austin Texas, where after High School I decided to follow my love for baking and attended the Austin Community College Pastry Program. After attending ACC, I got the great opportunity to work for one of the oldest bakeries in Austin, Sweetish Hill! I was hired as a cake decorator, and after 2 years of employment, I was promoted to head cake designer. But after 4 years of working at Sweetish Hill, they decided to close their doors leading me to the opportunity to continue my love and passion for baking. I am elated to provide these services on my own now!
