Heather Anne is a talented cake designers best-known for her embroidered cakes and cakes with edible sequin designs. Her education in art, a passion for food took her this profession and she believes there is nothing she cannot create. “While attending the University of Michigan School of Art and Design, I packed up my paintbrushes to study abroad in Florence. Though I had hoped that immersing myself in the realm of the Italian masters would rub off on my artistic prowess, I found myself more interested in the perfect foam atop my cappuccino.” she tells her story, and continues; “Upon returning to the States, my newfound passion for food seeped into my art making. For my art school thesis, I dedicated myself to forming the same connection to food in Michigan that I had experienced in Italy. After working with food producers and artisans in the Ann Arbor area, I created a series of edible monuments to honor each one.” Before she founded Sweet Heather Anne, Boutique Cake Studio, she spent some time with Eve Aronoff at eve the restaurant and braving Food Network Cake Challenges as an assistant to Courtney Clark of Cake Nouveau in order to refine her craft, develop her skills and refine her palate. She is a dedicated designer and her passion for designing cakes is a never-ending love story. “I love what I do, and look at each new cake as a challenge to further develop my craft. I am thankful to be working with an amazingly talented team who shares my passion for cake and keeps me laughing daily.” We loved the black cake with edible gold sequins which is such a standout.
