Margaret Braun is a pioneering cake designer and author of Cakewalk (2001, Rizzoli) whose work epitomizes the evolution of a food-focused artist.
Braun’s boundary-breaking work which fuses the food arts with the fine arts has taken her to the Middle East where she created 2,000 cakes for a Royal Wedding, to Venice with a tiered sugar mosaic for a Masquerade Ball at Palazzo Grassi, and to a castle in Ireland for a Rock Stars wedding.
She teaches in Europe and South America and conducts her bi-annual sugar sculpture workshop in a farmhouse in Le Marche, Italy. Based in New York Margaret had an 8 month residency at The Museum of Arts and Design where whose completed an installation of 2,000 hand-hewn sugar cups.
Margaret’s work transcends edible media to sculpture, illustration, design, and ceramics. Margaret loves what she does. She welcomes challenging seemingly impossible projects and loves collaborating with smart, talented and nice people.
Braun and her work have been featured extensively in film and print.
