Unique Designer's Cake Will Officially Open The First Showroom Bakery With A Grand
(1888PressRelease) The successful and innovative husband and wife team, Colombian born, Carolina Montoya and
Mexican born, Fernando Puga, owners of Unique Designer's Cake, will launch their first showroom bakery, in
Miami, after overcoming economic obstacles and tribulations! The celebration will be filled with sweet success!
Miami, FL - Like so many in the U.S., the economic crisis hit home for Carolina and Fernando. Before the turmoil,
they were both successful architects working at top firms in Miami. They never imagined they would both be out of
work, at the same time. But, sadly, they were both let go due to downsizings in 2009. However, in the midst of this
heart wrenching process, they kept the faith! Carolina knew that she had to re-invent herself and that was exactly
what she did! After a day of watching her favorite shows on The Food Network, an idea dawned on her, "Why not
fuse my architectural background, with my culinary skills and create captivating, edible pieces?" She brought her
husband onboard and thus the next chapter of their lives began to be written. Unique Designer's Cake was born!
"Our cakes are an expression of who we are and our passion for creating pieces that are UNIQUE," says Carolina.
"Because of our architectural backgrounds, our attention to detail is unseen in this industry." Our UNIQUE pieces
are full of color, vibrancy and warmth; people are mesmerized by our Designs. This is the way we express how we
live and the way we design every cake. There is no limit to what we can do," continued Carolina.
Because of their tireless work as a team, Unique Designer's Cake has received many accolades and national awards
and recognition for their creations. During the most prestigious art fair in the U.S, Art Basel, the German artist
Anselm Reyle, who is known for his shiny, fluorescent artworks, wanted to make a glow-in-the-dark cake and
called upon Unique Designer's Cake. They were the only team that was able to create this for him! UNIQUE
produced a special formula, where the blue frosting glowed in the dark as a Tron character. In 2012, Carolina was
invited to participate in The Food Network's, Sugar Dome, with a complicated and intricate 6-hour cake challenge.
For two consecutive years, they placed in the top ten finalists for the annual National Gingerbread Competition
held in Asheville, North Carolina. This was announced live on Good Morning America, the ABC National Morning
Show. They have also taken the grand prize in the best Gingerbread House in the annual Coral Gables Museum
competition in Miami-three years running! In 2010, the Colombian American Chamber of Commerce selected
Carolina as the winner of the "Best Dessert Menu" in Miami competition.
In 2013, Unique Designer's Cake opened its first showroom bakery in Downtown Miami and in celebration of this
milestone, will officially open with a Grand Celebration on Friday, March 15. "In our UNIQUE edible, showroom
you will find from a tower of handbags that defy the laws of gravity, to a three- dimensional jeep driven by animals,"
says Carolina. This versatile space has been developed not only as a showroom, but also as a UNIQUE event space
where we will teach participants to create and decorate their favorite desserts!
Unique Designer's Cakes is simply not willing to mass-produce cakes. They consult with clients to create special
edible pieces that tell their own UNIQUE story. The design starts with the client's ideas, feelings, favorite colors
and photographs. Using these, Unique Designer's Cake captures the spirit of the celebration, generating sketches,
and finally coming up with an amazing cake! They are all about details and precision- the architectural backgrounds
help them to create the most incredible structures, using only gourmet products and fresh ingredients. UNIQUE
specializes in creating edible scale models. Recently they created a replica of "Villa Vecchia," a well-known
mansion in Miami owned by Michael Saylor, with its balconies in white chocolate and gum paste palm trees, with
intrinsic interior details including hand-painted tiles, one by one!
UNIQUE'S creations have been featured in global publications and attracted the attention of many celebrities, such
as Christian Castro, José Feliciano, Oscar de Leon, Daddy Yankee, Prince Royce, Gloria Trevi, Diego Torres,
Ingrid Hoffman, Miami Heat Players, Chino y Nacho, Jaime Bayly, among others.
