Bitesize Bio

After graduating from Ithaca College with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Amber Spiegel went on to pursue her dream of becoming a pastry chef and enrolled in the Baking and Pastry Program at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York.

During those years at school she realized that her true passion was decorating cakes and cookies – a profession where she could combine her artistic skills with her love for baking.

 

In 2008 Amber won the grand prize in a Wilton cake decorating contest with her Island Paradise Cake and was flown to the Wilton School of Cake Decorating and Confectionery Art outside of Chicago, IL to take the Master Course. Soon after, she accepted a job with Wilton as a cake decorator. While at Wilton she decorated cakes and cookies for product packaging and publications including the 2011 and 2012 Wilton Yearbooks and was subsequently promoted to an assistant cake designer. With the support of her family, Amber made the decision in April of 2011 to say goodbye to Chicago and return to her home state of New York to follow her dream of turning her part time cookie business, SweetAmbs, into a full time career. Amber now also teaches cookie decorating classes and creates video tutorials to show others how to make beautiful cookies on their own.

 

Amber’s work has been featured in InStyle magazine, Your Wedding Day magazine, Cake Central magazine, BRIDES magazine, as well as on numerous Internet blogs and websites including Junebug Weddings, Merci New York, and The Huffington Post.
