Sweet Sentiments Bakery and Gifts
Karis B. Riddick is the Owner and Pastry Chef of Sweet Sentiments Bakery and Gifts. Her pastry ventures started in taking Wilton Method classes at a local craft store in 2011. Her grandmothers (with 9 children each), were the great inspiration for her decision to begin taking baking more seriously. In 2012, she began the Pastry Arts program at The Chef’s Academy, Morrisville, NC to further skill within her business and learn the art of classic french pastry methods. Karis will be graduating from the academy in November, 2014. Although her specialties are within fondant/gumpaste cake creativity, she enjoys all aspects of pastry including sugar art, lean and rich doughs, pies and pastillage. Karis is excited about the opportunity to participate within the Art of Cake Competition and happy to have been chosen.
