Spain

“For years, fondant and designer cakes have been my best friends and my worst enemies. My obsession with perfection reaches an extreme that I have to stop cooking for a while. After a time, I am back to work, with renewed energy and the desire to elaborate new ideas and enjoy myself,” says Juan Andrés Gallardo.

The cake designer and food photographer likes to play with colors and relates them to the seasons of the year. Gradients and textures are his hallmarks, and he believes that symmetry and color are a winning formula for the success of a cake design.
