Big Island Wedding Cake is a custom design cake studio with a husband and wife team, Andras, and Stella with over 20 years of experience in the culinary industry.
Stella - My adventures with baking and cake decorating started (well, ever since, I can walk and grab things) as a young child. Always in the kitchen tagging along with my Mom and both of my Grandmothers, cooking and baking for birthday parties and family gatherings. Little did I know that having so much fun in the kitchen, with time, will turn into a sweet profession.
In my teenage years, I worked in the family's restaurants in Budapest, Frankfurt, and Vienna. Although,
I finished restaurant management school, my parents had a different career in mind for me. They sent me
to nursing school and I became a registered nurse that I loved very much.
However, my passion for baking never faded away. I kept making desserts and birthday cakes for friends
and family spent some of my summers in the family's restaurants in Frankfurt, where I met my husband,
Andras, the chef. Long story short, we quickly made up our minds and moved to New York, (more like ran
away) we got married and started a brand new life.
Andras quickly worked his way up to a list of upscale caterers and high-end restaurants that catered to
the "Rich and Famous".
As for myself, I worked in small Mom & Pop restaurants for a few years, then, finally, started my own business that again, had nothing to do with cooking or baking. Although I loved my job and my business was my baby, I made a lot of effort to be the best, but it was incredibly stressful and draining. Therefore, I spent most of my free time baking and decorating cakes and cookies, making sugar flowers, sculpting cake toppers out of fondant. On the end, I gave them away to the neighbor kids. It was my therapy, my escape from madness. I enjoyed every second of it! As a result, Cobble Hill Cakes in NYC was born.
Finally, I realized that I am ready for a permanent change and I have to follow my heart, my passion. I only want to be around beautiful and to create cute cakes, playful and fun cookies that bring a smile to everyone's face. Curious and hungry to learn more about creating and decorating one of a kind cakes, I bought tons of books and had taken many exciting classes on the subject. Learned from some of the best pastry chefs in the industry. Quickly turned my lifelong passion into a sweet profession.
We moved to the Big Island of Hawaii in early 2014 and without hesitation, we immediately opened our cake studio, Big Island Wedding Cakes, where we are creating fun, beautiful and one-of-a-kind cakes for weddings, birthdays and for other celebrations.
