Featuring Bronwen Weber, of Frosted Art Bakery & Studio, this episode of This Week in Weddings discusses the experience of being on a reality competition program.

About our guest: 

Bronwen Weber, Executive Chef of Frosted Art Bakery & Studio in Dallas, Texas, started her 26 year career in a small bakery in Acton, Ontario. She has spent her time in bakeries and kitchens as a cake decorator, a cake designer, a baker, bakery manager, a management trainer, and cake decorating skills writer and columnist. Bronwen’s passion is teaching the art of the cake and she is a former Pastry Chef Instructor at the Cordon Bleu in Austin, Texas. For the last decade, Bronwen has reigned at Frosted Art, a bakery with a 70 year history, once owned by Neiman Marcus and now on its third generation of bride.

As a grand prize winner of the most prestigious wedding cake competition in America, Chef Bronwen’s winning piece, “Bombay Romance” was featured on Food Network’s “Here Comes the Cake” production. Subsequent appearances on more than 35 of the Food Network’s Cake competitions resulted in more gold medal wins than any other chef on the network. Food Network has granted her the title of Cake Challenge Champion.

In 2010 she was named in Pastry Professional’s inaugural list as one of the top ten cake artists in North America, and in 2014 she was named top 25 most influential pastry chefs in America by Bake magazine.

Bronwen continues to teach several times a year, often with her pastry minded husband, Francois Long.
