Hey there!  I'm Amy Kimmel and I'm a Cake Artist currently based in Phoenix, AZ.  My first true love was cake decorating, which pushed me into the much broader world of cake production.  I've worked in professional kitchens for years with titles from Cake Decorator to Pastry Chef.  Now, I get to work from home, creating and teaching, while raising my beautiful son.

For as long as I can remember, I've been obsessed with the art of cakes and learning everything I possibly can about the industry.  I also happen to be highly prone to sharing that information with anybody who will listen.  I believe that teaching is the basis of progress, for you and for me.  So, please join me in class and start advancing!
