Edda’s passion for baking cakes began when she was a young girl and would watch her aunt in the kitchen. It was not so much a hobby, as it was an artistic outlet that would stay with her well into adulthood.
After taking a cake decorating course in 1976, Edda was asked if she would be interested in teaching and accepted the offer. Soon after, she was working from home decorating cakes for family friends and a business was born.
Not only did her unique artistic designs draw in customers, but her delectable Vanilla Rum flavored cake emerged with a cult like following. Now, thirty years later, Edda’s Cake Designs has flourished into an institution in South Florida, boasting three locations throughout the community.
The Vanilla Rum bundt cake was introduced in late 2006, as a holiday gift item. It was an instant sensation. The following year Edda added two of her South Florida favorites to the bundt cake family the Guava cake, topped with mouthwatering cream cheese icing, and the decadent Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake.
Edda and her cakes have been featured in prominent magazines and newspapers, such as Martha Stewart Weddings, In Style, Weddng Style,Ocean Drive Magazine, Miami Living Magazine, The Miami Herald, and various other publications. Edda has also appeared on television shows, which include Deco Drive, NBC6, CBS4, and Despierta America, just to name a few.
In 2007, Edda was named and given an award as one of the “Successful Hispanic Woman of the Year” by the Latin Chamber of Comerce of the United States.More importantly, Edda’s Cake Designs is recommended by numerous party planners, and is the preferred cake designer in over 150 of the top hotels, catering companies and reception locations in South Florida.
