The Story of Torte Cake Art
Our passion of cake-making was embedded in our childhood since we started walking. Coming from a traditional Armenian background, our mum, Nimfa, has followed the traditions of baking Armenian cakes and sweets which was, and still is one of her many talents. For New Year and Christmas celebrations (Christmas is celebrated on the 6th January so it comes after New Year celebrations) cake making started weeks before, always aiming for at least 5 different cakes and sweet treats baked and decorated, ready for family and friends to enjoy. Our mum always was surrounded by double-trouble (us) and our older sister fighting to win the rights of licking clean the condensed milk can or mixing bowl. As we grew up, the responsibilities also increased, from pouring the right amount of vanilla extract into the mix to measuring right amounts of sugar and butter for the cakes. Eventually we took over decorating the cakes, piping intricate flowers, covering the cake with chocolate ganache and thinly sliced walnuts.
It is safe to say that we have been creating cakes since the 1980s. Later on when we moved to England, we brought with us our mum’s old recipe book based on which we started making cakes for friends.
The very first Cake Art was made for a friend’s birthday, in the exact replica of his villa in South of France. The cake was complete with swimming pool filled with blueberry jelly, coconut cypress trees and marzipan terracotta roof tiles.
Our expertise has now developed into cake designing and sculpting, with our focus set firmly on our customers. Through our creativity and imaginative nature, we not only bake scrumptious cakes, but also decorate them as “art projects”, hence the name – Torte Cake Art
