My wife and I recently celebrated our 7th Wedding Anniversary and for that occasion, I called upon Snack Swag’s Meiji May to create a beautiful anti-gravity malteser cake that I knew my wife would just love with some coconut and raspberry filling. It turned out fantastic and absolutely beautiful.
You may have seen the fabulous cakes found by local Orlando bakery @snackswagorlando on Instagram.
Orlando based Meiji May is a fashion stylist/ graphic designer working in cake and all thing sweets under the name Snack Swag, known for their artfully crafted cakes and pastries.
Meiji was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand – where she started her passion in food. She studied Art Advertising at Assumption University, Thailand, and after graduating applied her creative skills to creating her brand Snack Swag in 2014.
At the age of 28, she decided to come to the U.S. to support her husband, Jack Tawa, in his restaurant dream (it’s now Sea Thai and Tuun.)
She decided to complete 2 degrees at the same time; culinary management and baking & pastry management from Valencia College.
Meiji then combined her passion for baking and design to form, Snack Swag!, a yummy and pretty – high quality and crafted sweets inspired by Asian flavors and everything she loved when she was in her home country.
Seeking to bring people together over cakes and lifestyle, Snack Swag debuted in Summer of 2014 with the cartoon characters French macarons.
Since then, Snack Swag Has developed a thriving bespoke cake program, and created edible works of art to serve Orlando for all kinds of events and celebrations.
The most popular item at Snack Swag is the cookie cake. It can be made in any shape, numbers, letters, and any sizes.
The cookie cake is made with 2 layers of vanilla shortbread, hand cut then bake to golden brown and then filled with seasonal fruit filling and Italian meringue buttercream frosting and then I’ll freestyle decorating the cake to fit the requested theme and color tone so each one is pretty unique.
If they need any special request for the decoration, design, or topping, they are welcome to do it too… something like custom people face cookie, a puppy sugar fondant sculpture or personalized message over an imprinted fondant cookie.
It’s very fun way to create a unique dessert.
