Former "Cake Wars" Baker Says She Believes LDS 12-Year-Old Will Be the Next Big Baker

“I stopped by, I saw her cake, and I was like, ‘Holy cow. She did not do this,’” professional cake designer and pastry chef Pepsy Garcia told the Deseret News. “She’s so young and she applies a lot of attention to detail. She gives that extra stuff that most beginners don’t. She’s obviously born with the talent.”

In Addie Branham’s basement kitchen in Lehi, you can find a small, elegant slice of Paris.

There are Eiffel Towers everywhere — even the paper towel holder and trash can are inspired by the wrought iron tower in France. There’s a small, iron table by the window with two matching chairs, an ideal place to sit and enjoy a pastry. In cursive lettering, an oversized, hand-painted clock says “Addie’s Boulangerie,” French for “bakery.”

From her French haven, inspired by her love of Paris, Addie runs her new cake baking and decorating business, “Miss Addie’s Cakes.” Although several things set apart Addie’s business from others like it, perhaps the most impressive is this: Addie is only 12 years old.
