With a past career in fashion, self taught “flourist” Amirah Kassem creates
the most unbelievable confections. Whether it’s creating a Murakami
smiling flower out of gumballs for this years Brooklyn Artists Ball, or
Chinese takeout for Wu-Tang Clan‘s 20th birthday, her creations are
awe-inspiring, and really fun.
Amirah grew up in Mexico and her love for baking comes from playing in
the kitchen with her mother and grandmother. Amirah was never formally
trained and she will never use fondant. Her cakes are fun and cartoony.
The frosting without fondant creates imperfection which actually makes
them quite perfect.
