The Edible Artists Global Academy Association was founded five years ago by Agnes Chin. It was clear that many up-and-coming cake artists were struggling and trying to gain entry into their desired, yet competitive profession. Thus Agnes, with the international support of cake artists from the U.S., U.K., and Europe, decided to cultivate a network of like-minded individuals in the hopes of sharing, supporting and proliferating each other’s’ talents in the world of the culinary arts.
Fast forward to present day, the EAGAA has evolved into a flourishing non-profit organization with a vision of spreading love for the Edible Arts. Its core board members still comprise of international chefs and artist from all over the world and to this day, serves as a support platform for a community of culinary artisans, cake artists, home bakers and cooks – all looking to improve, retrain and network.
