It all started with...
Tammy's passion for sweet and beautiful treats. Following this passion led Tammy on a journey discovering the joys of cake decorating, that was well over ten years ago.
After receiving formal training in Cake Decorating and industry experience working as a senior trainer instructing cake decorating students Tammy decided it was time to realise her dream and created Tammy Iacomella Cake Design
Decorating cakes allows me the opportunity to use my artistry and skills to produce entirely handcrafted edible creations. I love incorporating additional elements such as edible painting, sculpting edible figurines and sugar florals to compliment my designs.
Inspiration comes in many forms from fashion, nature, beautiful art works even architecture and sculpture. When something striking catches my eye one of my first thoughts is often how could that be re-created in sugar.
I love being given a design brief or a theme and having to design and construct a cake and edibles that encapsulates their central idea. Utilising my creativity and skills to create something truly beautiful and edible is enormously satisfying.
Tammy's qualifications to date include a three year Certificate of Cake Decorating as well as attending numerous Master Classes with world renowned Pastry Chefs and Cake Decorators. She also holds a Bachelor of Science from her pre-cake nursing days.
Tammy is actively involved in several industry association groups, most recently holding a position on the state executive. Tammy has been extremely fortunate to have had multiple successes in competitive cake decorating, winning several first places and her work has been featured in publications both local and international.
Tammy spent her early years living overseas but proudly calls Perth, Western Australia home. She is happily married and has two gorgeous grown sons. When not making beautiful cakes Tammy loves to read, cook, exercise, wander through art galleries and travel. Family, friends and laughter are everything!
