Hello and welcome to our page!We are a cake design company currently located in Davis California.
This blog is dedicated to all things cake with the goal to provide tips and tricks for fun cakes!
Enjoy this blog and please bring in comments, I will do my best to respond to all of them.
In the past Cake Couture was an active home-based cake making company (2012-2017).
Although we currently do not actively provide cake making services we do continue to produce decorating molds and templates sold through our Etsy shop.
My name is Christie Apodaca and I am a cake decorating enthusiast. I started cake decorating at age 12 when I successfully convinced mom to sign up to an adult cake decorating class so I could tag along. Pretty soon she was dropping me off in class and going back home! Needless to say I have enjoyed cake decorating ever since.
I was born in Lima, Peru and grew up in Davis, California. Since a very young age I was always in love with art and design, dreaming of someday being a fashion designer. Although I choose not to pursue art or design, sewing and cake decorating has always been my creative outlets.
Instead, I pursued a degree in mechanical and aeronautical engineering, graduating from UC Davis. Post graduation I worked in industry in the areas of business, technology, and manufacturing. Always interested in entrepreneurship and business development, I also spent time working for my family's growing local agriculture business.
Eager for even more change, in 2012 I decided to start this cake design company and prepared to enroll in business school. I went to school in the evenings and made cakes during the day while I staying home with my very little girls. It was the hardest three years of my life to balance so much, at my peak I made 10 wedding cakes in one week!! Somehow my family and I survived:). Today I am a technology management consultant, cake blogger and make the occasional special cake<3.
Thanks for visiting us!
