Cake Fiction was founded in 2008 by Paula Tosonotti. Our specialty cake bakery was originally located in Union NJ. We then moved to Long Valley NJ, where we restored a historic barn and converted it into an amazing commercial kitchen!
Paula Tosonotti has been baking cakes since 1995. She began cooking in earnest after taking private classes in Paris, while completing her Master’s degree at the Sorbonne University. Paula studied for 3 years with Ariel Rodriguez Palacios and Chef Pâtissier Osvaldo Gross at the I.A.G. (Argentine Institute for Gastronomy) and graduated with her Chef’s diploma.
Paula trained in the renowned restaurants Massey and Restó in Buenos Aires, operated her own catering business and also ran a pastry shop from 1999-2001. She moved with her family to New York in 2001 and settled in New Jersey, where she quickly gained a reputation for baking awesome ginger scones! Paula has also studied at the French Culinary Institute in New York City with Cynthia Peithman and Lauri Ditunno.
Paula has a creative flair that extends beyond baking: her other hobbies include furniture restoration, painting and organic gardening. She has lived and worked in Argentina, France, Peru and Switzerland and speaks fluent French and Spanish. Her experiences living and working in many countries all contribute to her eclectic culinary expertise and creativity with pastries.
Graduated from the I.A.G. (Argentine Institute for Gastronomy) in 2000. Paula is also an accredited ServSafe Instructor and Proctor, helping other culinary entrepreneurs with food safety best practice.
We are proud to have been recognized for consecutive years as a leading wedding cake vendor by The Knot magazine as a result of the independent reviews our brides have posted about our business.
