The Artist

“Working with my hands and seeing a project from start to finish gives me an indescribable high. It’s amazing to see words and sketches come to life before my eyes.”

Ashley Christophe has always been passionate about visual arts. As a child she would paint, draw, mould and colour and this passion has matured into a profession. Initially pursuing Interior Design at The International Academy of Design, Ashley was able to develop her skills and knowledge in the competitive field. After finishing at the institution, Ashley realized that she loved hands on projects. Her primary position as a Cake Decorator at Dairy Queen sparked her interest in edible creations. Using concepts from school she would take ice cream cake design to a different level. Sophisticated colours, dynamic flower and character designs made out of icing and steady airbrush work gained Ashley the status of a teacher and a veteran designer at the ice cream shop. She decided to expand her experience and take classes with a licensed Cake Decorator. These classes opened Ashley’s eyes to new techniques, new media, and uncovered a talent that was yearning to come out.

For the artist cake design is not only about adding icing to a blank cake, it is about being a part of special moments and memories.
