What is your experience in the industry?
Annie Dam is the owner and cake designer of Cake Couture. After receiving a Science degree at the University of Alberta, Annie travelled to the south of France on a scholarship to teach English. After 3 years in France, her travels took her to Spain where she lived for 5 years. During her years abroad, Annie had the opportunity to develop her real passion: combining art with her love for baking. As Annie perfected her style and learned new techniques in Europe, her work recognition grew, and so did the list of clients.
She has written about cake decoration for a range of publications and has had her wedding cakes and cupcakes featured in blogs and magazines around the world. Annie published her first book in 2011, Cake Couture: Modern Sugar-craft for the Stylish Baker.
