I was working at Restaurant Service for long years in Japan. And I also researching for my life work. When my first trip of U.S.A. I think 2004. It was my first seeing when I discovered the pastry work in U.S.A. I have never known Fondant at that time. Sugar work was very inspiring to me, so much so that I could feel my heart expand when I looked at their creations and I felt that pastry work was a destiny calling. However, I did not know how to proceed with pursuing this dream and I continued to work at restaurants in Ishikawa, Japan. I just put the passion into a box and rocked in my heart. After more investigation and soul searching, I was finally able to begin my new path in 2008 by relocating to New York City to attend culinary school.
I relocated to New York City in 2008 to attend a culinary school that specialized in a vegetarian and healthful food preparation techniques. (I'm not a vegetarian but I was interested in healthy food, and that's why I went cooking school call Natural Gourmet Institute. ) After graduating, thanks to the help of one of my instructors, I was able to land an internship and eventually a position at a custom made cake company call "How Sweet It Is" The work there was very inspiring to me, and I felt my box contained my passion of Sugar art was explosion that pastry work was a destiny calling. Obviously, the pasty industry uses a lot of Sugar, Butter, Oil, etc.; ingredients that are quite opposed to those espoused by my teachers at my healthful cooking school. I was torn as to what I should do, but alas the charm and artistry of the pastry world won out. And besides, I believed that pastry is a great way to make people smile and have fun and that's something that's very important to me.
Unfortunately, the company I was working at closed, and I was unsure where to turn next
Then, the next chapter made it self clear… to start a small business- something that I had always dreamed about. I was considering Cupcakes, but as you know, everybody seems to be making cupcakes nowadays, and cupcakes seem to be available on every other corner. Then I had a fun idea; How about Cupcake & Cake Toppers?-- kind of like Cake Accessories.... And thus I began mimicafe Union, a source for all kinds of Artistic and Fun Cupcake & Cake Toppers.
It's great work and I really love creating custom made, unique toppers for special events, toppers which customers often choose to save as sweet memory keepsakes of their special occasions. Actually this is my philosophy of life; Live a Happy Life and Cherish your Sweet Memories, they're always good to keep nearby. If I can help my customers with these happy moments and memories, I feel I have fulfilled my mission in life.
