About Daniela Arini

Daniela was born in Sao Paulo, Brasil and at a very early age discovered her passion for baking. After graduating from a well-known Pastry school in 2002, Daniela’s talents were soon recognized by high-end, 5-star hotels, such as the Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida, and The Phoenician in Scottsdale, Arizona. She also worked as a Pastry Chef in New York City for a Top Chef Celebrity, David Burke. Her expertise and impeccable attention to detail did not go unnoticed, and she was asked to create cakes for Dubai royalties, the Obamas, and other notable dignitaries.

In 2012, Daniela decided to change course and finally pursue her dream of owning her own business. Glacé Cakes – New York was then born.

Glace Cakes

Glacé Cakes originated in NYC in 2012, and quickly became a sought-after cake studio where clients immediately recognized the beauty combined with extraordinary taste. In 2017, Glacé Cakes started a new journey in a new city as it relocated to Austin, Texas. Glacé Cakes quickly got nominated as the best cakes in Austin.

What makes Glacé Cakes so exceptional is the careful consideration and planning involved in each and every cake created, and no two are alike. This is the advantage of having a professional Pastry Chef craft your cakes and desserts. You’re guaranteed an amazing service and product.

Fun Facts

Secret Service
When working in Scottsdale – AZ, Daniela’s expertise and impeccable attention to detail did not go unnoticed, and she was asked to create cakes for Dubai royalties, the Obamas, and other notable dignitaries. Daniela was proud to have had the honor of baking the Obama’s birthday cakes, although it was quite a challenge to bake cakes with the secret service looking over her shoulder the entire time!
Delivery Hazards
Delivering cakes is by far, the most stressful part of our jobs. It takes a lot of hours to create a beautiful cake, and it can all go down within minutes if the cake is not properly packaged or transported. We use special insulated boxes, filled with dry ice, and our courier drives VERY slow. I mean, sloth speed.
Strange Requests
We get lots of cake inquiries on a daily basis and some of them really makes us scratch our heads.

  • Can you make a vegan, gluten free, soy free, corn free, low sugar cake?
  • Can you make an orange Mickey cake with a Game of Thrones vibe and some unicorns?
  • Can you make a 4 tier cake for about 10 – 12 guests?
  • Do you deliver to Ireland?

They are really nothing like anything I've ever tasted before, and I've eaten A LOT of cake! And Daniela is a master at designing cakes. She creates true works of art that still taste AMAZING!"


"Glacé has done birthday cakes for us on multiple occasions and they never fail to impress! They go above & beyond in helping to make our birthday parties feel extra special with beautifully decorated delicious cakes!
