Hey there! I’m Joy. I am a biomedical animator by day and cake artist by night. I am currently located in the wonderfully vibrant and diverse city of Toronto, Canada.
About my day job
You might be wondering: what is a biomedical animator?! We are professional artists that combine an advanced education in the life sciences with visual communication. Together with some pretty awesome teammates, I create 3D animation enhanced surgical videos for The Toronto Video Atlas of Surgery. Part of my job description is going into the operating room to film surgeries.
About cozy oven cake shop
Because of my combined love for baking and photos, I started a blog called ‘Joy’s cozy oven’ in 2010. As I continued my baking blog, I found myself especially enjoying making cupcakes. I love the creative flavour combinations and endless decorative possibilities.
In 2015, under the encouragement of my friends, I decided to turn my passion into a side-business. I am so thankful for the amount of support I have received from friends and families. I still remember how nervous I was about making 50 cupcakes for my friend's wedding in 2016. Years later, I've made multiple tiered cakes.
You will find me most happy when I'm piping buttercream flowers or sculpting cute 3D cake toppers. But I'm always looking for opportunities to continuously improve - whether it's perfecting existing techniques or learning new ones.
