Welcome to Cakes By Coffee!
First of all, I would like to thank you so much for visiting my website and blog! My name is Asia Coffee, and I'm the owner of Cakes By Coffee (Formerly Artistic Desserts & Cake Rental). Whether you're here to check out some neat cake decorating tips and techniques in action, find classes in Indianapolis or learn more about cake rental for your special event (yes, that's a real "thing"), please know that (I'm here first and foremost) to be a resource for YOU. Please allow me to introduce myself!
I'll start by saying that this is not my day job! I'm a registered interior designer by profession, and I spend at least eight hours a day, five days a week working on commercial interior design projects. I'm married to my college sweetheart and we live in Indianapolis with our three amazing boys!
My adventures in cake decorating began in January of 2011 when I took a Wilton cake decorating class with my mom. Needless to say, I completely fell in love with cake decorating, and began volunteering to make cakes for family and close friends. These cakes created a portfolio of sorts when I applied to become a Wilton Method Instructor in mid-2012. I starting teaching cake decorating classes at the Hobby Lobby store in Avon, IN in November of 2012, and I picked up the Carmel, IN Hobby Lobby store in October 2014 after becoming a Certified Wilton Method Instructor. I've since added the Michaels store in Trader's Point and community education arrangements with Ivy Tech Community College and Oasis of Indianapolis. I love teaching just as much as I love cake decorating!
Beginning September 2016, Artistic Desserts & Cake Rental became Cakes By Coffee. The focus has shifted to represent 75% cake decorating resources to 25% cake rental services. I'm also very excited for the opportunity to continue to blog about cake decorating trends and techniques. As before, my class schedule for each store is updated regularly. Please free to contact me for more details about how you can join us!
Thanks again for stopping by and welcome to Cakes By Coffee!
