Let´s do this together!
I am Cristina the face behind The Art Cake Experience and The Art Cake School. I was born in Venezuela and currently live in Lisbon. Thirteen years ago, I started this path on the sweet side of life by working as a Cake Designer and Gelatin Artist, however I´ve been a teacher for 20 years so my true passion is teaching.
Bringing my two passions together I started teaching gelatin decoration and 3D gelatin art in Portugal in 2013, as well as Cake Design and Sugar Paste Modeling.
Today I have my work display between a blog “The Art Cake Experience” where I share recipes and tutorials as well as an inside look at the use of Social Media for a Cake Business. A YouTube channel with easy to follow tutorials and recipes and an online school where you can find the complete Gelatin Courses both 3D Gelatin Flowers and Decorated Gelatins as well as some other free classes.
I love to teach and to bring the Cake community around the world together as one through true friendship, helping others and learning from one another.
I can´t wait to share these courses with you and complete this journey together.
Sometimes we just need a good recipe, some baking tips and a reminder of the basics in order to make a good base cake to decorate .
In this video tutorial you´ll have all the basic information on filling, leveling, covering a cake, and some pre baking tips for a better result. Also a PDF with a list of materials and recipes. At the end, you´ll have a great blank canvas to decorate!
