CakeFu Master Series: Elisa Strauss

Elisa StraussOur next CakeFu training is going to be with the spectacular and world renowned Elisa Strauss.

Elisa has made quite the name for herself throughout her career. It’s easy to see why when you look at how amazing her cakes are.

Elisa Strauss is the owner of Confetti Cakes on the Upper West Side of Manhattan which she has run since 2001.

She is also a published author. She wrote a cookbook that was a huge success and an instructional book which is equally wonderful. Her books are:

The Confetti Cakes Cookbook

Confetti Cakes For Kids

Elisa has also made two Craftsy videos:

Designer Handbag Cakes

Sculpted Dog Cake

Before starting her bakery, Elisa worked as a textile designer at Polo Ralph Lauren and a handbag and hair accessory designer at Frederic Fekkai.

While working in fashion Elisa attended pastry school at Institute of Culinary Education and graduated with a degree in baking and pastry arts. She  also spent a semester during her junior year at The Art Institute of Chicago.

While working and going to school, Elisa was asked to make Ralph Lauren’s 60th birthday cake in the shape of his Bugatti sports car. Soon after she was asked to design a shoe cake for the famous shoe designer Manolo Blahnik.

Elisa has been featured on numerous television shows, including three Food Network Challenge series, Martha (TV series), and The Today Show. One of her cakes was also featured on HBO’s Sex and the City as Charlotte and Harry’s wedding cake.
