Dean and Michelle make up the team behind Sculpted Bakes. Two creatives who have chosen the world of cake making and design, as a way to express their creativity and professional backgrounds.
The idea of baking and creating in a way that makes people wonder “how the hell is that a cake?!” has always appealed. In fact, making cakes look less like cakes was one of the things that attracted them in the first place.
Dean’s background is 16 years as a professional Stop Motion Animator and Sculptor before joining Michelle in the cake making business. He has worked on a number of films and popular television programmes. Chances are you have seen his work and wouldn’t even know it!
Michelle worked in the TV and film industry too, as a theatrical and media makeup artist. She has also taught at various colleges for many years, teaching special effects and media make up. Michelle has baked since she was a child and has perfected many delicious recipes. The path to the more unusual cakes started with a cupcake topper, and the rest is history!
The creative duo are exceptionally proud of their backgrounds, after all not everyone can lay claim to working on Oscar and BAFTA winning productions!
Together, they are the perfect match with Michelle baking exquisitely tasty cakes and Dean sculpting amazing creations.
