Miriam Adar (@Miriam.Adar.Cakes on Instagram), one of eleven children, born and bred in Lakewood, New Jersey, has been a lifelong artist. On a whim, she baked a fancy cake for her daughter’s birthday 7 years ago. From there, she discovered that fancy fondant cake making was her new artistic passion. She opened a business in South Florida, and as her online presence grew, she got the surprise of a lifetime: an invitation to appear on the Food Network. Hear how Miriam dealt with her Jewish observance on the show, her craziest cake, and more!
