ABOUT SARAH

Sarah Schlesinger's first and utmost passion is creating art.  A classically trained artist with a BFA from Pratt Institute, she has held a wide variety of jobs in traditional art fields.  Her journey to cake design began four years ago in the custom art department at Sylvia Weinstock Cakes, where she worked as lead artist and creative director.  Most recently, Sarah has worked closely with Kate Sullivan of Cakepower on a variety of projects that exposed her to new edible mediums and a truly boundary-pushing way of working.  She approaches cake design from the standpoint of an artist, and pulls from her background to inform the way she composes and creates edible work--chocolate becomes clay, buttercream becomes paint, and cake is the underlying structure. 

Sarah's work has been seen on Style Me Pretty, NBC's Today Show, the Food Network, and the Cooking Channel.  While her own work has a focus on the natural world, there's nothing more exciting or inspiring than collaborating on a custom cake with a client!  For more information or to set up a consultation, email sscakesnyc@gmail.com.

 
 Simon is Sarah's partner in daydreaming and designing, but his paws never go near the actual cakes. As co-owner of the business, he's there to remind everyone to take a break and have a snack, step outside for some fresh air, and never be ashamed to take a nap when you need one.
