KRISTINA WILLIAMS - CAKE DECORATOR
My name is Kristina “Tina” Williams. I am a cake decorator and baker in Central Pennsylvania, where I earned my Associate’s Degree in Baking and Pastry Arts from Pennsylvania College of Technology in 2014. During College, I acquired a foundation for cake decorating and competed and placed in multiple cake competitions.
My love of cake decorating led me to an internship in Vermont studying under Irene Maston at Irene’s Cakes by Design. My baking, cake decorating skills, and love of traveling took me to McKinley Creekside Cabins and Café in Denali National Park, Alaska where I spent two summers as a baker and recently their lead baker. While the love of traveling has been a dream of mine, my ultimate dream is owning my own business.
Kristina’s Kakes Facebook page originated in my last year of college. Since then, I have been doing cakes while gaining valuable experience within the food industry for the last five years. When returning from Alaska, I knew it was time to focus on what I really wanted to do with my life. This is it! I’m grateful to have found a commercial kitchen to rent as this will allow me to have the production space and equipment needed to grow Kristina’s Kakes.
What I like most about cake decorating is the ability to create memories through food and believe that creating cakes is an art form from beginning to end. Cakes should taste delicious and be presented beautifully. All my cakes are made from scratch and decorated with Italian Buttercream. Every cake has four layers with three layers of filling, and are decorated with edible decorations and flowers created with fondant and gumpaste. I love creating cakes but offer much more. Check out the menu tab on this site to see what else is offered!
When I'm not baking, I love being outdoors, traveling, reading Joanne Fluke’s baking murder mystery series, watching Hallmark movies, and spending time with friends and family.
I look forward to talking with you further about your next order and creating something sweet and beautiful for you!
Have a great day!
