Kanya Hunt has an absolute passion for baking and has been doing so since the very young age of 4. She recalls her very first cake as being pink and blue with pink icing and can still remember her mom’s dismay at the state of the kitchen. Initially qualifying as a dietitian at the University of the Freestate she pursued her passion by continuous baking and taught herself the finer art of sugar decorating. But her true passion is creating contemporary works of cake art using the best quality Belgian (Callebaut) and Swiss couverture (Lindt) chocolate. Buttercream textures, as well as piping work, also became an area of expertise.
