A Keen Impression- Cake Studio, located in La Crescenta, CA specializes in custom cake design, by appointment only.  All our cakes are designed from the ground up as a unique expression of the client’s wishes.  Our goal is to provide you with a precious edible work of art.  Clients invariably remark that our cakes taste every bit as good as they look.  From traditional wedding cakes to celebrations of any special event, each cake draws inspiration from the different movements in art.


About the Artist

My name is April Koteh.  I am a self-taught cake artist.  I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Advertising.  For many years I worked as an animator -- the old-school, traditional kind -- doing lots of pencil drawings on paper with pegbar and lightbox.  When our son Nathan was diagnosed with autism at age 3, it was an easy decision for me to become a stay-at-home mom.  Baking and decorating cakes has always been a passion for me.  These last few years it became more of a serious hobby and eventually an increasingly viable medium for artistic expression.  In 2012, I decided to further hone my baking skills so I earned a diploma in Professional Baking from the Academy of Culinary Education in Woodland Hills, CA.
