Meet the Instructor & Business Coach
Yari Diaz, is a self taught cake designer and is bilingual in Spanish and English. She was born in Bayamón, Puerto Rico and came to Florida with her family at the age of 9. She has been married for 17 years and has 2 boys.
As a child, Yari was always involved in developing her artisitic talents. Her passion evolved when her oldest son was diagnosed with autism and she gave up her studies as a nurse to be a full time mom. With time, she wanted to contribute financially to her household but from the comfort of her home, and that’s when the idea of cakes came to mind. Starting with small $5 cakes, she has turned her hobby into a profitable full time business.
"It is my greatest pleasure to introduce to you my second business venture, Orlando Cake Academy.
My desire to see others succeed has ignited my passion for teaching which I suppressed for a long time, but when God provides a vision, you clearly see that what you thought was the door, was only a hallway leading to that door.
Come along with me on this journey! Welcome to the confectionary world of sugar! "
