Avalon Yarnes owns Avalon Cakes School of Sugar Art, an online platform for cake and sugar art enthusiasts to learn and explore. She’s also the woman behind The Cake and Cookie Planner, an award-winning line of products for planning and sketching cakes and cookies. Avalon found her love for art at a young age, but it wasn’t until she began her first job at fifteen that she found her love for baking. Ever since she entered the sweet side of the food industry, she has been challenging herself to go above and beyond. Her passion lies in presenting cake in a form only formally reserved for traditional sculpture, brush, and paper. She found her “happy place” bringing both art forms together. Avalon learned how to create cakes and sugar art through experience and experimentation. Whether it’s realistic busts, defying gravity, delicate flowers, or making colorful watercolor paintings, most of all, she enjoys sharing her findings and teaching others. She has had the honor of being awarded Best Novelty Cakes Artist and one of the Top 10 Cake Artists of North America. You can also find her on television shows like Food Network Challenge and Duff Till Dawn. Her work can be found featured in top bakery blogs, magazines and books.
