Katherine Sabbath is a Sydney-based, self taught cake creative and passionate merry-maker. Originally a high school English, history, geography and commerce teacher, she has always been a self-confessed, sprinkle-covered, sticky-fingered, bake-aholic! Any spare hour would be spent mixing, rolling, piping, dusting (not to be confused with the housework kind), ganaching, sprinkling and of course, taste-testing! Her love for experimenting with new flavours and dessert concepts has led her to pack up the teaching textbooks and dive head first into the dessert world.
She is happiest when creating thoughtful, unique and deliciously crazy cakes and desserts for loved ones, friends and family. Her work has been published in countless magazines, websites and social media channels. You can see her live in action by visiting any one of her dessert demonstrations or workshops held across Australia as well as internationally.
After joining Instagram in early 2013, sharing photos of her creations and snap shots of her vibrant personality has resulted in an international cult following of more than 320,000 - serendipitously making her a household name among home bakers worldwide.
In between teaching hands-on workshops, demonstrating in front of hungry audiences and supporting home bakers (who she believes are the best kinds of people), Katherine relishes in collaborating with others and has also worked alongside major brands and businesses through creative partnerships. Her latest project, the most ambitious project to date is a kickstarter pop-up cookbook of paper engineering and creative baking, a collaboration with talents such as creative director Tracy Lines, paper engineer Benja Harvey and photographer Nikki To.
