With a master's degree in painting from Pratt Institute in New York, and eight years' experience as a designer for Tiffany & Co., Colette brings a trained artistic eye to her work in cake decorating. She pioneered the now-classic designs of the topsy-turvy cake and gift box cake as contributions to Tiffany Taste and The Tiffany Wedding. Colette has published five books and appeared in a host of television programs over the years. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, Food & Wine and Modern Bride, among others. Colette teaches cake decorating classes around the world and at her own school in New York City. Colette is also a longtime member of ICES (International Cake Exploration Société).
