I'm Hannah Hsu, I am originally from Tainan, a city in Taiwan, but I currently live in New York.
I graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education to study Pastry and Baking Art in 2018. After graduating from ICE, I have gotten several cake-related decorating and instructor certifications.
I specialize in piping floral cake, Japanese- style wagashi, frosted cookies, meringue cookies, and Taiwanese desserts. I also teach cake decorating classes.
What's so special about my cakes? My recipes come from Taiwan and Japan, so they are less sweet than U.S. bakeries and they will give you that WOW feeling when you take a bite into them.
On this website, I share my work and my life as a baker.
Please contact me for more information about placing orders and the type of classes I offer.
