Meet the instructors:
Helen Nguyen: Helen has been Portland resident since 2010. She graduated with an Associates in Baking and Patisserie from Le Cordon Bleu of Culinary Arts in 2012. She is particularly skilled in her sugar work and chocolatiering. She gained professional experience in kitchens throughout Portland since 2011, obtaining several different leadership roles including Lead Cake Decorator and Bakery Manager. While working at a gluten free bakery, she met Makana Jarman and found a mutual love and interest in Asian fusion cakes and pastries with a modern twist.
Makana Jarman: Makana is originally from Honolulu, HI. She graduated from the Art Institute of Santa Monica with a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts in 2010. She moved to Portland in 2012 and fell in love with the Pacific Northwest! She found this to be the perfect place to practice her craft since this is a city that truly appreciates the culinary arts. She has worked in various bakeries throughout Portland and was most recently the Lead Cake Decorator at a gluten free bakery. It was there that she met her business partner and best friend, Helen. Through their friendship and love for baking, they created Cake Nouveau — an Asian fusion bakery with a modern spin on all the pastries we grew up loving. It is their dream to share these unique flavors with you and the world!
