Hi! I am Antonio! Welcome to my world of artistic cakes! This is what I do and what I love.
I opened "La Cucina delle Zie" in 2013 in Brussels, when I understood that my work as a lawyer did not bring to my life the joy and pleasure that I wanted and decided to follow the voice within which was saying "You have to create!".
I have been trained as a baker and cake decorator, mostly in the UK, and followed quite a few masterclasses with some of the greatest cake artists and designers, working my way to develop my style and my techniques. Still nowadays I devote some time (unfortunately not as much as I would like to) improving my skills and pushing forward my boundaries.
I have participated and won awards in international competitions, taken part in collaboration among cake artists, been judge in cake shows and taught cake decorating classes in Belgium and abroad.
In 2023 I will be part of the team representing Belgium to the FIPGC Cake Designers World Championship in Milan, Italy. And I am super excited about it!
I love cats, everything colourful (especially in all shades of blue), Art Nouveau/Art Deco/Midcentury Modern, languages, cats, architecture, painting, books, old movies, cats, flowers, textures, stationery and did I mention that I love cats?!
