I’m Cynthia Irani, a Lebanese-Canadian living in the beautiful city of Montreal, QC with my husband and two daughters. I would say I’ve been in the design industry for over 17 years.

My passion for design includes a wide spectrum ranging from a variety of digital products — currently working as a senior product designer building passage planning tools for mariners — to basic colour scribbles with my two creative daughters. But most recently, and most relevantly I must add, I have found my calling somewhere in the middle — or some would say, somewhere outside of my original “spectrum”.

I have combined my love for the fine arts and cake, by basically pouring my creativity on cakes as if they were canvases.

So in the past 2 years, I have been a cake artist on the side. I’ve managed to find my creative outlet in between my day job and parenting.

I've been seeing nature, mostly flowers and plants as my recipe. I want to mix it, sift it, beat it, smooth it. Basically I want to craft its every delicate detail and bake it into a blossoming cake.

Making my way up from my home kitchen where I started with three sweet admirers — that would be my husband and two daughters — I find myself today on Instagram with over 90K followers.

And after receiving high demand in learning my signature style, I have recently launched my first online cake decorating course “Modern Cake Painting” with ifimade.

I have also started leading in-person workshops hosted by cake decorating institutions across multiple countries.
