Every holiday was like an episode of The Next Great Baker in my family .Growing up Italian, food has always been the heart and soul of our culture. Food was always a comfort of mine and at a young age I decided I wanted to give that comfort of food to others. I always knew I wanted to be apart of the food industry somehow.
Eventually, my dreams of owning a restaurant slowly died as I stumbled across my new favorite television show, Cake Boss. Every weekend there would be “Sugar Saturday” where I tried to recreate a cake from Cake Boss.
My kitchen would be upside down and I had nobody to give the finished product to but it helped me practice my craft. I was so inspired and fascinated watching Buddy and his team turn something edible into art. By the age of 15, I slowly realize that all those “Sugar Saturdays” paid off and my skill level increased immensely. I kept practicing my craft and went on to the Culinary Institute of America.
I learned so much there and it truly gave me the building blocks I still use today in baking. Eventually I went on to intern for Cake Boss and then went on to Ron Ben-Israel Cakes.
Ron inspired so much of my artistry and to say I learned a lot from him and his team is an understatement. I was inspired so much that I decided to finally make my company and thus, Vincenzo Salvatore Cakes was born.
My brand is all about Luxury and really caters to my clients. We have become known for our realistic sugar flowers that we study day in and day out. As an artist, I am always looking to make sure as a company, we are always staying on top of the newest trends.
Although, does staying true to yourself ever go out of style?
Vincenzo Salvatore was born and raised in Staten Island, New York and is not a stranger to the events world. Coming from a big Italian family, Vincenzo grew up around lavish events and had such an interest in them.
He always knew he wanted to use food as a way to be celebrate the important milestones in peoples lives.
