About the Author:
Born in Uruguay, with over 25 years of experience in cake decorating, Natalia Da Silva took out a patent on a new system for stacking multitiered cakes known as TOWERCAKES.
Having participated in several competitions, winning ?rst prizes and gold medals, she is well-known and acknowledged internationally. She has been invited to teach her new patented system in various countries, such as Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador, the United States, Portugal, France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Poland, Belgium, China, Indonesia and Mozambique, to name just a few.
She likes to retell stories with her works of art, characterise people or illustrate speci?c situations. The system of TOWERCAKES considers not only statics but also our aesthetic sense. The harmony in combining different shapes without neglecting the compatibility of colour and the entire visual impact plays an essential role in de?ning and characterising her style.
At present her teaching takes her all around the world, training hundreds of students and professionals involved in this wonderful world of cake decoration. She focuses on trying to inspire her students and stimulate their creative potential. Natalia trusts in an endless source of creativity that is available to each of us - in a world, where everything is permitted, where nobody judges or intimidates you so that your imagination can run riot.
Lets seek out our inner child when we imagine. Lets be free of prejudices and become dreamers with a pure heart... and the magic will appear! How can we rediscover this source of creativity that has been missing for such a long time? The wisest among the wise once said... By giving you receive. So lets give something of ourselves ... Lets help others in a way everyone understands. I do my best; I convey my skills and humble knowledge about the source of creativity to anyone who asks me.
