Who says food can’t be an art form? Cake artist Leslie Vigil, whose work we’ve covered last year, definitely proves that it can be with her irresistible cakes that look like embroidered dresses.
“Baking began as a hobby when I was young,” Vigil told Better Homes & Gardens in an interview last year. “My mom would often experiment in the kitchen and she took a cake-decorating class. I was so fascinated with all the beautiful things she made and brought home, so I decided to join her. I’d study her cake decorating books and feel so inspired. At the time, I only knew I wanted to make cakes for my kids like that one day, never really considering I could make a profession out of it. I always hoped I could, though.”
After some years, she completed a baking and pastry program at the prestigious French cooking school, Le Cordon Bleu, after which she started slowly building her business. Scroll down to see her embroidery cakes!
