About The Cake Artist
Vincent Buzzetta was born on October 4, 1989 in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of 13, He moved with his family from Brooklyn to Staten Island. Vincent developed a passion for cooking at a very young age, constantly experimenting in his mother's kitchen, while most of his friends were outside playing ball. It was no surprise that after graduating from Xaverian High School in 2007, Vincent defied his parents’ wishes to apply for college and enrolled at the prestigious French Culinary Institute of New York City. In February 2008, he became the youngest student to successfully complete the program– graduating first in his class.
Vincent dreamed of opening his very own bakery, where he could showcase his talent and skill, not only as a Pastry Artist, but also as an innovative, one-of-a-kind Cake Designer. Following his graduation from The French Culinary Institute, with a little financial support from his Grandpa Joe, who has always supported Vincent's maverick spirit, he opened his dream bakery "The Cake Artist", and never looked back. Shortly after, Vincent starred in his own hit reality show, Staten Island Cakes, featured on WE tv. At just 21 years old, The Cake Artist is currently running Staten Island's hottest, up-and-coming bakery where he sells cakes that are truly imaginative works of art.
Vincent is dedicated to excellence and committed to developing his skills as a Cake Designer. He stands out from the rest by being passionate and dedicated to exceeding his customers’ expectations, with the creation of extraordinarily beautiful, out-of-the-ordinary cakes. He is constantly in the bakery perfecting the taste and decorative aspects of his cakes, to ensure that he is developing the best possible product for his customers.
The Cake Artist's fervor is reflected through his success at various pastry and cake competitions throughout the New York tri-state area. In November 2009, he won his first blue ribbon at the New York Restaurant & Hotel Show at the Jacob Javits Center. Vincents's success continued at the "Taste of Staten Island" competition where he won "Best Special Occasion Cake" in 2009, and then went on to win "Best Bakery on Staten Island" in 2010.
When The Cake Artist isn't working, he can be found riding his horse Rudy, spending time with his family and friends, or dreaming up his next brilliant creation. He plans to continue to grow the success of The Cake Artist and possibly return to The French Culinary Institute to teach others about cake design and pastry arts.
