is a passion of mine and I create every cupcake with all my heart and

Friends, BBQ's, Showers or a big event for Charities, Weddings, or
Banquets I craft each batch as I was feeding my own family - it's who I
am at the core. I am lucky to have my whole family with me on this
adventure including my rock star husband Anthony, my amazing father Doug
and last but definitely the most influential, my step mom Stephanie.

ALISON RIEDE of
SUGAR CAT STUDIO
Riede, Food Network's Cupcake Wars Season 4 WINNER and founder of Sugar
Cat Studio, is delighted to be a judge at Cupcake Camp Westlake
Village. Alison opened
Sugar Cat Studio, an independent cupcake catering business, which also
offers handmade cupcake wrappers, in Santa Barbara in July 2010. Alison
also offers gluten-free cupcakes, which she became especially passionate
about after her sister was diagnosed with celiac disease. With degrees
in Surface Pattern, Textile and Fashion Design from Syracuse University,
her inspiration runs the gamut. From thrift store aisles, fashion
runways, décor magazines and shows on Food Network, anything can spark
an idea for a new cupcake wrapper design or cupcake flavor. Color
combinations and patterns inspire her, and she loves flea market
shopping and reading almost any food blog or magazine she can get her
hands on. Her most popular cupcake flavors are white chocolate coconut,
pink champagne, and anything cheesecake related. Alison's cupcake
wrappers have been shipped worldwide for weddings in Paris, London, and
Australia, and she's also created cupcake wrappers for the Academy
Awards celebrity gifting suites. Alison bakes gourmet cupcakes for
weddings, birthday parties, and other special events, and there isn't a
cupcake flavor she won't try at least once! She's also donated cupcakes
to fundraisers, most recently the Organic Soup Kitchen Jazz BBQ
Fundraiser in Santa Barbara, and has partnered with Oreana Winery on
select weekends to create unique wine and cupcake pairings. Alison
welcomes custom requests, and would be delighted to bake cupcakes or
create cupcake wrappers for your special event!

Anisa received a B.S. in Nutrition from the California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, CA. After college, she successfully completed a dietetic internship with the State University of New York in Oneonta, NY and passed the national exam to become a registered dietitian. After working in the field of clinical dietetics for 5 years, Anisa discovered that her interests in dietetics really came from a more alternative view point. During that epiphany, Anisa decided to obtain a Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition; she also became licensed in clinical esthetics, and certified in massage therapy. As a professional in the field of dietetics, Anisa wanted to help other new mothers. She decided to broaden her knowledge by becoming a certified lactation counselor. After becoming a new mother again, Anisa noticed that there was little support for new mothers in Ventura County. In 2010, Anisa created The Nutrition Mama, to help teach mothers how to create healthier, happier families by offering nutrition education and breastfeeding support services. Anisa is passionate about being a mother and raising healthy children. She hopes to share her knowledge with the other mothers in her community who have the common desire to create a lifetime of good eating habits and optimal health for their families.

I am a senior at Moorpark High School and I am Miss Teen Ventura County Intl. Since I could talk, I always wanted to be a princess. My freshmen year in high school, I found out about the International Pageant system and immediately wanted to compete. This past year I was fortunate enough to capture my current title. The International system is great -- it gets young women involved in their community because this pageant system focuses largely on community involvement. My first platform was Soles4Soles and I collected over 1,000 pairs of shoes and donated them to people who have never had a pair of shoes. The platform I am working with now is Go Red for Women through the American Heart Association, which spreads awareness about women's heart disease. I chose this platform after seeing what my best friend has gone through with four heart surgeries, and still struggling with heart issues. I have learned so much from the Gushwa Family - Crowning Glory Productions - this past year, who have treated me like their own daughter. I have grown a lot working with various charities since I won my title.
My hobby is baking! My mother was a professional baker, and I have had fun creating all kinds of goodies throughout my childhood. I am excited to be a Judge for the Cupcakes for Cancer and to be able to help this fund raiser in any way that I can.
