Born in the beautiful town of Annecy in the Haute-Savoie region of France, Bastien Blanc-Tailleur has always been passionate about pastry-making.
“As far back as I can remember, I never missed a chance to eat patisseries. I can think of nothing more delightful than the simplicity of a good chocolate mousse, the fluffy texture of brioche or the crunch of flaky pastry.”
In his teens, his passion became his livelihood, starting with a job near Deauville, laying the groundwork for his future career.
He moved on to work in Toulouse, then Paris, never wavering from his goal of excellence and participating in a number of professional competitions along the way.
“Rigor, passion and self-sacrifice have enabled me to master the many facets of professional pastry-making. It took years of hard work and perseverance to achieve the savoir-faire I use today to make my unique creations.”
An accomplished pastry chef, he has held the position of assistant pastry chef in several prestigious Parisian establishments such as the Carette tea room, the three-star Pavillon Ledoyen restaurant and Four Seasons Hotel George V.
He deployed his cake decorating expertise in each of these illustrious kitchens, seizing the opportunity to create his first wedding cakes. Building on this experience and driven by the desire to take his passion for decorating to the next level, he created his own studio in 2015, providing services for high-profile events.
Bastien Blanc-Tailleur is recognized as one of the best wedding cake pastry chefs in France and across Europe.
Boasting 10 years of pastry-making experience at the most eminent Parisian establishments, he founded his own creation studio in 2015 to devote himself 100% to his art.
In his Parisian workshop, Bastien crafts handmade, bespoke wedding cakes, each one a work of art in its own right.
Adorned with true-to-life sugar flowers, edible lace and gilded foliage, his creations can require up to several months of work.
“The main ingredient is always time: the time spent working with the future bride and groom, coming up with ideas, going over sketches, the time to develop a recipe and, especially, the time devoted to making the cake and its decorations.”
Bursting with creativity, he carefully develops the style and ingredients with each couple, taking into account their tastes, the wedding decor and reception venue. He sometimes goes so far as to match the cake with the bridal gown.
“The cake is one of the highlights of any wedding, so it must be a showstopper, absolutely unforgettable.”
The pastry chef’s clientele includes celebrities and members of royal families as well as people celebrating their event out of the public eye.
At his studio, Bastien creates unique cakes for Parisian receptions held at prestigious venues such as Palais Garnier, Elysée Palace, Château de Vaux le Vicomte, Ritz Paris, etc.
His wedding cakes can also travel worldwide to make any event unique.
The works of Bastien Blanc-Tailleur have been featured in a number of articles in the press and enjoyed coverage on French television (see press review).
He is often called upon to give Master Classes in France and abroad, giving him the opportunity to share his unique know-how with professionals and amateurs alike.
