Born in Durango, Mexico, Mimi Guzman moved to Chicago at 14 to make a better life for herself, and one year later, moved to Los Angeles. As a young girl, she enjoyed art and drawing, but it wasn't until she discovered the fine art of gelatin suspension that her artistic passion blossomed. As a teenager, she began creating beautiful masterpieces that became the envy of local bakeries and supermarkets, alike! In 2011, while attending Los Angeles Trade Technical College, she opened up a small store, teaching gelatin art, baking classes and cookie decoration. She switched majors, entered into The Professional Baking program, and earned her culinary certificate while maintaining her store. Since 2014 Mimi has traveled the country teaching classes and sharing her passion.
