Katherine Sabbath is a Sydney-based self taught cake creative and passionate merry-maker. Originally a High School English, History, Geography and Commerce teacher, she has always been a self-confessed bake-aholic by night. Her love for experimenting with new flavours and cake concepts, has led her to pack up the teaching textbooks and dive head-first into the dessert world. She is happiest when creating thoughtful, unique and slightly crazy cakes and desserts for loved ones, friends and family. Katherine enjoys documenting her recipes and is passionate about sharing her candy-coloured and creatively joyous food ideas with others. Her work has been published in various magazines, websites and social media channels and you can see her live in action by visiting any one of her dessert demonstrations or workshops currently being held across Australia, and the world!
Accidentally establishing an international cult following after posting photos of her cakes After joining Instagram in early 2013 posting photos of her cakes resulting in establishing an international cult following of more than 380K followers (which continues to increase by about 1000 each week) and is now a household name among home bakers world wide.
Katherine never went seeking fame however the success of her online exposure prompted her to move on from her career as a high school teacher at the end of 2014 to focus on the “cake life” full time.
In August 2015 Katherine attended her first baking class and now teaches workshops, collaborates on various food events and is available for suitable brand sponsorships. She has countless imitators and an Instagram hashtag, and there are even people out there sporting a Katherine Sabbath cake tattoo.
