Chef and edible artist Laurie Ryan of A {ice of Cake and Desserts of Tampa Florida

Greetings! I'm Laurie, the heart and soul behind A Piece of Cake & Desserts. Baking has been woven into the fabric of my life since childhood, igniting a passion that has only grown stronger over the years. From the moment I held a mixing spoon, I knew the kitchen was where my creativity truly blossomed. Guided by the aromas of sweet memories, I embarked on a journey of crafting not just desserts, but edible experiences that bring joy to every bite. Today, fueled by the same enthusiasm I had as a child, I continue to explore and experiment, infusing every creation with a dash of innovation and a whole lot of love. Join me on this delectable adventure, as I take pleasure in conjuring up new and delightful treats that are not just visually appealing but irresistibly scrumptious.

In this blog post, we're excited to provide you with a glimpse into the creative mind behind A Piece of Cake & Desserts. While our About Us page sheds light on the artist, we're here to offer a more personal introduction to the woman herself.

Meet Laurie, the brilliant mind responsible for our edible masterpieces. Despite her natural inclination towards privacy, we've managed to coax her into sharing some insights into her passions beyond crafting delightful edible artistry. Learn about the moments that inspire her outside the realm of confectionery creation.

We greatly admire her self-identification as an "Edible Artist." This term not only carries a sense of playfulness but also accurately encapsulates her true essence. While many individuals channel their artistic endeavors through materials like metal, paint, or pottery, Laurie masterfully weaves her creativity using flour and sugar, crafting awe-inspiring pieces that are not only visually stunning but also an absolute delight for the taste buds.

As Laurie, the creative force behind A Piece of Cake & Desserts in Clearwater, I am genuinely thrilled to share my passion for crafting delectable treats with you. From childhood baking to the present day, my love for creating mouthwatering confections has only grown stronger. It's not just a profession; it's a calling that allows me to transform ingredients into magical experiences. The joy of seeing smiles light up as my creations are savored is what drives me. I wholeheartedly welcome the chance to extend this joy to all my cherished customers, conjuring up flavors and designs that are as enchanting as they are delicious. Allow me the honor of bringing a touch of magic to your next delightful indulgence.
