Tessa Huff is a cake designer, specialty chef, and event stylist. Huff has always perceived pastry as edible art and had been quite the artist herself since a very young age. She began studying ballet and performance art at age four, and continued dancing into her early twenties. Huff has always been involved in music and theatre, and has a great appreciation for art in all of its forms. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication from the University of California, Davis, she decided to turn her passion of the culinary arts into a career.
After owning the custom cake boutique, The Frosted Cake Shop, Huff has been busy exploring all aspects of food, photography, and design. She values quality ingredients and challenges herself to use a variety of fresh flavors and textures to create unique sweet and savory pairings. In addition to pastry, Huff is known for her realistic sugar flowers, figures, and sculpted cake toppers. Beyond cakes, Huff loves to style events and create custom dessert tables to showcase individual pastries, homemade candies, and more. She enjoys entertaining and believes that the beauty of a dessert not only lies in the design, but in the display as well. You can her find her most recent work in her portfolio
