Toronto cake artist April Julian has been dreaming up award-winning custom cakes and desserts since 2007.
April’s love for baking and visual arts began at an early age. Even before she was old enough to use an oven, she would fill her mother’s baking pans with hand towels and pretend they were freshly baked cakes. On Christmas or birthdays, art supplies were always on the top of her wish list.
It wasn’t until decades later when she saw master cake artist Ron Ben Israel demonstrating a sugar orchid on TV that she realized there was a way to combine her two greatest passions.
Since that chance discovery, April has trained under some of the greatest cake artists in the world, and honed her own unique style and artistry. Today April is the owner of Queen City Bakeshop in Toronto, and her award-winning creations have been featured in a number of international publications including American Cake Decorating Magazine and Cake Craft and Decoration UK.
