About the Author
Colette Peters has been the owner of Colette’s Cakes, a specialty cake company in New York City, since 1989. Since she was 8 years old, living in Chicago, she made cakes and experimented in the kitchen. Her first love, though, was painting, and after earning a bachelor’s degree in painting, moved to New York to earn her Master’s degree in painting from Pratt Institute. She then worked as a designer for Tiffany & Company for 8 years. While at Tiffany & Co. she made cakes for her co-workers, and was then asked to design cakes for the books Tiffany Taste and The Tiffany Wedding. This exposure led to a contract to write a book of her own.
Colette has delivered cakes throughout America, Europe, and the Caribbean and has created cakes for many celebrities, including Sting, Natasha Richardson, Bette Midler, Whoopi Goldberg, Al Pacino, Ertha Kitte, Robert Altman, and the Rolling Stones, just to name a few. She created cakes for the weddings of Marie-Chantal Miller and Prince Pavlos of Greece and Alexandra Miller and Alexander Von Furstenburg. In 1996 Colette was chosen to create a cake honoring the Renwick Museum as part of the 150th Anniversary Celebration for the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. She designed the Christmas windows for Tiffany and Company’s New York store in 1997 and 1999. In 2005, she created a five foot replica of the White House for one of the Inaugural parties for president Bush.
Her unique cakes have been featured in a variety of media. Colette has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Food Network, CBS This Morning, The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Discovery Channel, CNN, and Lifetime Television. In 1990, Colette began teaching cake decorating and has traveled throughout the United States, Brazil, and Europe sharing her expertise. She has instructed students at the Culinary Institute of America in California, the French Culinary Institute, The French Pastry School, The Wilton School, L’Academie de Cuisine, and the Notter School of Pastry Arts. In 2004 she started her own school in New York City where she teaches cake decorating.
