Projects that bake your brand to life have allowed Ewa to work with global luxury brands and national companies.
Running the Ewa Feix Akademie has been a great addition to the business because getting the opportunity to teach others is very rewarding. Ewa gets the chance to bring the cupcake decorating techniques that are used in North America and pass them on to wonderfully enthusiastic and talented German students. Classes are on weekends and weekdays with a maximum of 8 people. They are usually in German (with a huge Canadian accent!) but I have done bi-lingual courses, with simultaneous translation. It’s always a fun day!
