Lori Hutchinson – or more formally, The Caketress – is a refreshing reminder that cakes are a universal form of art. Renowned for her skill, her haute couture cake designs, and her ethos that all cakes should be one-of-a-kind, Hutchinson has earned praise from the likes of Harper’s Bazaar, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Brides – all while cultivating a strong, global fanbase. With the combination of her social media presence and artistry has led to international opportunities that include everything from an appearance on the Food Network Challenge to a welcome place in the Dubai wedding community. 2014 alone has seen The Caketress teach her signature skills and create cakes in four continents, while Hutchinson still stands as one of the few cake artists to have been flown across the world to design and create towering wedding cakes.
Of course, this is only the beginning. In addition to inspiring her students to find their own approaches and styles as cake designers, The Caketress will continue to challenge herself and any limitations that surround the cake industry!
