Kristina Rado is a multi-skilled Cake Designer, with particular expertise in the art of sugar flowers, realistic modelling, Royal Icing and edible painting.
Of Hungarian origin, Kristina lives and works in Rome and for the past 5 years has travelled regularly to the UK to learn. Most notably, she has attended many advanced master classes with Eddie Spence MBE to learn and perfect her work in the art of Royal Icing, but has learnt also from other uniquely talented master sugar crafters including Christine Flinn, Vivian Lee and Robert Haynes.
Kristina's professional focus is now mainly as a consultant and teacher for both professional and amateur sugar crafters. She teaches from her studio in Rome and travels internationally to teach at many prestigious sugarcraft schools. This year she will travel to Hungary, Switzerland, Poland, Mexico, United States, Indonesia, Peru, Hong Kong and Japan among other destinations to hold her specialist classes.
Kristina is the winner of several high profile sugar craft competition awards; including two gold medals for her wedding cake category entries at Cake International (2013/2014), and she was voted the winner of the Royal Icing Award at the 2014 Cake Masters Magazine Awards.
From a very young age, Jacinta has always been fascinated by arts, fashion, cakes and baking. She was also inspired by her mom's love of bringing people together and would always look forward to helping out with her birthday cake. Little did she know, she would one day be creating many cakes, including her very own wedding cake.
After graduating from Fashion Institute of Technology, Jacinta started her career in the fashion industry. Living in New York, she was inspired by all the bakeshops & specialty markets. Fashion aside, she dreamt of one day being involved with cakes and celebrations.
It started with Wilton Masterclasses, and bringing the brand into HK as a distributor. And, over the years being mentored and tutored by many incredible Cake Artists, Jacinta developed her own style in hand sculpted cakes, figurines and airbrushing. Her creative cupcake creations have also received many rave reviews and started to take a life of its own by word of mouth. Since it's inception in 2004, Jacinta's vision has always been to Educate, Decorate and Celebrate.
Today, Cake Artistry is reaching every sector of the market.
