Award-Winning Cake Decorator Miranda Kenney-Pellett has always had a passion for baking - whether it be making pies with her mom on a stool at the age of 6 covered in flour from head to toe, starting a Christmas baking business with her sister Stacy in their old childhood neighbourhood or decking out a Betty Crocker Cake with ridiculous loads of icing and sprinkles with her friends for birthdays. After receiving the 2008 Betty Crocker Calender from her mom for Christmas, Miranda started to become more interested in cake decorating after a few of the cakes from the calender turned out better than expected! After receiving so much positive response for her family reunion cake, Miranda decided to look into the Wilton Cake Courses at the local Michael's Arts and Crafts Store in Waterloo, Ontario. After completing all of the courses and being told by her instructor that she had a natural talent, Miranda decided to look into more advanced classes - and from there, she hasn't looked back! Miranda has taken classes with a number of professional cake artists at a local Cake Supply Shop - Icing Inspiration, including Food Network Challenge's Michelle Bommorito, TLC's Ultimate Cake-Off's Courtney Clark and Carrie Biggers as well as Kaye Hartman from Petal Crafts in California. Miranda hopes to continue taking as many classes as she can to learn more techniques and to better the techniques she has already been taught! In addition to completing several cake courses, Miranda graduated in 2009 from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, minoring in Sociology. Miranda believes that her background in Psychology will better enable her to interact with her clients and give them the best experience!
Miranda recently competed on SLICE TV’s Cake Walk: Wedding Cake Challenge, where she competed against 2 other Canadian designed to complete a 4-foot-tall, 300lb wedding cake in 7 hours. Regrettably, Miranda did not win the overall competition, but did win the taste-test portion of the competition! In 2011, Miranda and her husband Luke, opened up a 1200 sq-ft commercial cake shop in Cardinal, where they are now filling orders every weekend.
