    Chef Kate Sullivan,  A superstar in the world of custom cakes, pioneering cake artist Kate Sullivan has been fashioning dynamic, award-winning cake confections for more than 20 years. Named one of the "Top 10 Cake Artists of North America" by Dessert Professional, she has appeared on numerous television programs including The Martha Stewart Show, the Today Show, and the Food Network Challenge. Kate's cake artistry has been featured in countless magazines, including O Magazine, People, Brides, In Style Weddings, Time Out New York, and Real Simple. Kate's own book on the art of cake decorating, Kate's Cake Decorating: Techniques and Tips for Fun and Fancy Cakes Baked with Love, was published by Quarry Books in 2004. Her fabulous gingerbread house cakes were a Christmas holiday feature at the New York Botanical Gardens for several years. She has designed one-of-a-kind cakes for rock-and-roll legends, masters of design, and vaunted artists.

    Born in Brooklyn, Kate Sullivan entered the magazine world in New York City straight off the mean streets. She became a celebrated photo director for magazines as diverse as Parenting and Smart Money, with a sharp eye for emerging talent and cutting-edge design, working with photographers and artists such as Antonin Kratochvil, David Levinthal, and William Wegman. On the side, she baked for hands-on fun, creating fanciful cakes for friends and family that were an expression of her longtime fascination with the visual arts.

    Kate launched her cake business as LovinSullivanCakes in 2004, pioneering customized, sculptural cakes in a landscape where generic cakes for weddings and other celebrations were practically an assembly-line enterprise. Today, out of her Cake Power cake studio, Kate collaborates with clients to create bold, breathtakingly unique works of cake art by hand, turning to 3D technology, projectors, PhotoShop, and detailed architectural renderings to help design models of sculptural integrity. Kate finds her inspiration from artists whose work is somewhat fantasy-based, like the late designer Alexander McQueen. She has carved a Marie Antoinette bust from Rice Krispies treats; fashioned giant Rubik cubes, beloved childhood books, and dancing Chinese dragons out of sugar and chocolate; and made a to-scale model of the new Whitney Museum served up in an art installation at the museum, with front railings made of royal icing and delicate balconies built with Rice Krispies treats—all of it delicious. Her sushi cake, created for Nobu's 20-anniversary celebration, had 24 handmade pieces of amazingly real-looking "sushi" painstakingly modeled with a base of Rice Krispies treats covered with fondant and modeling chocolate.

    But Kate Sullivan's most important inspiration is her client, and some of her most magical and unique confections are the result of client collaborations—from working with a world-renowned architect, who sketched a few ideas at the Cake Power studio for a special birthday cake commission. Kate particularly loves when kids come into the studio excited and unfettered by the laws of gravity, and ask "How 'bout a cake shaped like my dog on a pogo-stick?” In Kate's world, anything is possible.

    In addition her cake business, Kate has also taught cake-decorating classes for the Institute of Culinary Education CAPS program and Craftsy Online Cake Decorating Classes, as well as offering Gingerbread Workshops at the New York Botanical Garden.

    "There's something reverent about creating something for someone's special celebration—it's clearly a labor of love. But I'm also surprised at how much I love making cakes. I didn't expect to be so in thrall with the smells, the textures, the tastes, the mouth feel. When I'm lost in painting a cake, it might just be the most pure experience of flow I've ever had—the feel of the brush and textures of the colors as they move across the canvas of the fondant. And I love that the people I make cakes for continue to follow up with cakes for other milestones. The foreverness is really wonderful."—Kate Sullivan
