Baker and sugar artist Chef Dana Herbert has long held a local reputation for his confections—he’s known across Delaware as "The Sugar Daddy" and "King of Cakes.” He rose to national attention on TLC's Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker, where he took home the top prize and caused viewers everywhere to lick their TV screens with his inventive flavors and striking designs as well. His dual training in culinary and pastry arts also won him an invitation to join the esteemed James Beard Celebrity Chef Tour.
At Desserts by Dana, he channels his creativity into customized wedding cakes, intricate sugar sculpture, pastries, and special event cakes. Each edible conversation piece is sculpted around moist, rich cake—available in more than 20 flavors such as Mexican chocolate, raspberry, and pumpkin—which can be filled with mousse, lemon curd, or other sweet fillings. Equally as imaginative as the flavors is the final product, which might arrive decorated with delicate, eye-catching flowers, bows, or damask designs. Chef Dana can also fashion cakes into the likeness of cartoon characters, cars, or the profile of a funny-looking cousin.
Since his successful run on Cake Boss, Chef Dana has garnered even more attention for his sweet treats (which also include cookies, tarts, and pastries). He’s been featured on such networks as NBC and FOX, and lauded within the pages of Huffington Post, Chef Magazine, and Fitness Magazine. He’s also made sure to show that there’s more to good eating than sugar—when he’s not baking, he tours from coast to coast to educate the country on diabetes. During these tours, he helps others learn to create nutritious, flavorful meals and desserts specially tailored for a sugar-free diet.
