Hi, my name is Milene Habib. I was born in Lisbon on the 26th of November 1983, and I have lived most of my life in Sintra. Currently I live on the south side of the Tejo River.
I discovered this sweet world in 2010 when I wanted to bake a decorated cake for my daughter's first birthday. I'm a hyper curious person and I've always been interested in working with my hands, crafts and arts and being self-taught with a desire to innovate and experiment, I developed my own techniques. Little by little, I started making cakes: first to friends and family and, inevitably, the taste for this world grew.
Quickly, a small joke turned into something very serious. I started my own business and, now a days I can't imagine myself doing anything different. I am also a certified trainer and, at the moment, I am dedicating myself solely and exclusively to the development of new techniques to create new modeling projects and cake design classes. I love fantasy and everything connected to the fantastic, and I am also truly passionate about modeling and painting...
Within cake design, I do a little bit of everything: from a normal cake with a custom fluffy topper to a sculpted cake to defy gravity, or even an elegant wedding cake with handcrafted patterned floral arrangements. During this sweet adventure I won some prizes: golds, silvers and bronzes in several national and international competitions where I also had some featured pieces in magazines, tutorials, online classes, demonstrations made in cake design events, facebook pages and groups, etc. I was invited to the jury of a Brazilian and Portuguese competition, and I am currently one of the ambassadors of the renowned brand "Saracino".
I hope you enjoy my sweet art and if you are curious or want to deepen your knowledge in this area, please do not hesitate to visit my page.
