CAKES WITH CHARACTER
by Jean Schapowal
Named by Cake Masters Magazine as one of the Top 10 Cake Artists in the USA, Jean Schapowal, started Cakes with Character by scratch over 15 years ago wearing the hats of artist, head baker and mom of three.
Today her passion for designing one-of-a-kind cartoony, pop, comic book style cake creations has taken Jean all over the world, and onto our TV screens. A 3x Cake Masters Awards Finalist, Jean is Food Network's Big Bake Canada Winner, and has been featured on numerous TV Cake Challenges.
Jean is also a contributor for Satin Ice, and a Cake Dutchess Certified Instructor.
She loves to create fun and engaging pieces, cakes that “pop”. When people see one of her creations, they can say, “oh that's a Jean cake”!
In October 2023, Jean and her assistant, Reva Alexander Hawk will be traveling to Milan to represent Team USA in the FIPGC's Annual Cake Designer's World Championship!
