Carlos Lischetti’s passion for cake decorating, baking and pastry started over 20 years ago. As a small boy, Carlos was most happy in the kitchen of the family home in Rosario, Argentina, baking cakes for his family and experimenting with sugar paste decoration. As his curiosity grew, he started to take different local cake decorating courses that eventually helped him to master various modelling techniques. When his hobby became a career, he continued to work in Rosario until his ever-growing curiosity led him once again to attend more courses, this time in Paris and London.
Carlos’ trademark style, developed alongside the animated sketches by his twin brother, Elio, has become recognised all over the world. His first book, Animation in Sugar, was launched in 2012 and has since been reprinted several times and published in four languages, with more translations to follow. His work is featured regularly in Cakes & Sugarcraft magazine and he has hundreds of thousands of followers around the world. Carlos travels extensively, teaching students at a number of international renowned culinary schools.
