As a child Mercedes was always fascinated with art. Her love of nature inspired her to become very creative as a young girl. She discovered cakes when she ordered a birthday cake for her son and was not happy with the results. She began a hobby in cakes and it continued to grow. As she continued creating new ideas for cakes her passion grew into teaching.
Mercedes is great with people and loves sharing her gift with others. This led to teaching locally and internationally, sharing her passion with many. In addition, Mercedes travels the world demonstrating her Satin Ice rolled fondant techniques.

She was an active member of ICES and was asked to create the state show cake for the 1997 ICES Convention.
Mercedes took on that challenge and her show cake proved to be the best of the best. It was recognized as a work of art and was transferred to the Orlando Science Center to be displayed as a permanent exhibition.
Mercedes operates the very popular "Bake Me A Cake" bakery with her family.
