A word about the organizers?

Fany and Sandrine are two passionate pastry sisters! Each one living her passion in her side until the day when they asked themselves: « why not work together? It was then that they decided to join their talent around a workshop to share their know-how with people who want to learn and progress in making good and beautiful cakes!

Sandrine

From as far back as I can remember, I have always loved make cakes. There was no better way to put me in a good mood. I live in Douala and I am an accountant by profession. I devote most of my free time to my passion: the Cakes. Armed with my love for pastry, I embarked on the adventure of professional pastry and I created Cakicious, my project of « pastries homemade delicacies », my baby whew!

Today, with a great experience in the field, it is with a real pleasure that I transmit this knowledge.

Fany

I like sweets! But in 2015 I discovered myself a talent for creative pastry and created my first blog « cake entrepreneur ». I particularly love wedding cakes. Based in Paris, it is in parallel with my job as a clinical research associate that I obtained a CPA in pastry to showcase my talent and my passion in serving others.

It is with joy that I wish to convey my experience and my fiber in the event cake decoration.
