Located in Durham, NC, Kimmi's Confection Expressions is a privately owned, professional custom cake decorating service, founded in 2010, by Kimwa Walker (pictured). In 2009, Kimwa began regularly baking and creating unique, artistically decorated cakes as gifts for her friends on various celebration occasions; receiving very high praise for her raw talent & creativity. Pretty soon, she realized that her hobby was becoming her God-given passion for creating memorable, customized works of edible art! In early 2010, Kimwa enrolled in formal, professional-grade training, in order to develop advanced technical skill in decorating and further pursue excellence in her craft. This passion has now become a committed livelihood, to provide made-to-order, delightfully artistic, quality-designed, addictively delicious cakes for virtually any celebration!
2011 was a particularly exciting year for Kimwa, as she added the role of Cake Decorating Instructor to her business endeavors! She has formerly instructed Wilton Method Cake Decorating classes at Michael's Craft Store in the Durham, NC area. She has also taught as an adjunct faculty member at Durham Technical Community College, instructing Cake Decorating and Fondant classes as part of the institution's Continuing Education program in Culinary Arts & Hospitality. Most recently, Kimwa has also previously hosted an 8-week training series for basic cake design & fondant techniques (called Kimmi's Cake Design Course), conducted from her own home kitchen! Additionally, she has conducted cake design workshops for the Pinnacle Culinary Academy in Durham, NC.
Since November 2013, Kimmi's Confection Expressions has also been the official cake vendor for birthday parties & events at the North Carolina Museum of Life & Sciences (NCMLS), in Durham, NC, and enjoys a great professional relationship with this community staple family venue!
Most notably, Kimmi's Confection Expressions was commissioned to create a STELLAR birthday celebration cake for world-reknown recording/performing artist, Michael Bolton, during his 2015 tour stop in Durham, NC!!!
