By Barbara Regini, Barbie lo Schiaccianoci.
Barbara Regini was born in Milan and has been surrounded by art since she was small. She attended art school, Brera Academy, specialising in decoration and sculpture. She was introduced to sugar art about two years ago and immediately fell in love with this medium, which combines all forms of art and design. She explored the technique of modelling and moved toward a style that combines art and sugar reinterpreted with irony. She likes to show the hidden meanings of cakes and to freeze a precise moment in time, like a photograph.
Barbara teaches at various levels in the graduate schools, fairs and dedicated classes. She has taken part at national exhibitions and won numerous competitions, and was among the ten finalists of the 2013 Glamour Italian Cakes at Sigep, Rimini. Recently, she took a third place at The Americas Cake & Sugarcraft Fair in Orlando. Her cake of Mona Lisa was chosen to be among the 100 international artists featured in the book “Mona Lisa Reimagined” by Erik Maell.
