Julie Deffense brings nearly 20 years of impressive design experience and living abroad to her international design of luxury cakes. She works with each couple to create a one-of-a-kind luxury fondant, buttercream or "naked" (virtually frosting-less) wedding cake for their special day. Julie has been designing high-end wedding cakes, primarily in Portugal, since 2010 and now available starting spring 2017, in Sarasota, Florida.
Julie Deffense Artistry creates custom, luxury wedding cakes that vary in price depending upon the complexity of the design, the number of guests and the size of the cake. Prices range from a minimum of $750 for a small, simple cake to $10,000+ for an elaborate, multi-tiered cake. Julie divides her time between the glorious, wedding destination coastal areas of Sarasota, Florida and Cascais, Portugal. Depending upon the season and circumstances, she can fulfill special commissions across the U.S. or in European countries with close proximity to Portugal.
Julie Deffense is also an international book author of three successful cookbooks (in Portuguese). Julie is currently working on her fourth book, an English-language edition work, to be entitled, JULIE DEFFENSE ARTISTRY: A Life of Romance, Beauty, Culture and Cake.

Julie Deffense Artistry's reply:
We recently worked at a wedding in Portugal that had a Julie Deffense cake, and I have to say that her cake was THE most delicious cake I have EVER eaten IN MY LIFE. Not only was it delicious (the most important thing), but it was stunningly beautiful - her crafts(wo)manship is incredible. She is a true artist, and makes your tastebuds sing. Also, she is really nice, and I pray we get to work with her again!
