Wolverhampton's Paz Heer has received praise from such stars as Arnold Schwarzenegger for his designs, with the former Governor of California saying his Predator cake “had outdone Hollywood”.
Now, Paz has achieved a long-held ambition by being featured in an industry magazine.
Paz had been trying for six years to be featured in Cake Masters Magazine, a publication he described as the Forbes magazine of the cake world.
The 39-year-old's ambition has finally been realised after he was featured as part of an article on bakers then and now.
He said: "I've been trying for a very long time to get featured in the magazine and you have to submit your cake pieces or your stories to them.
"My piece was on the fact that I've been doing it for 10 years, having had no clue about baking when I first took the business on.
"It means a lot to me to be featured in this world-wide magazine as I've been trying for so long to get into it."
Paz began his career in baking after taking on AB Cakes in 2010 as a business opportunity, leaving his budding career as an officer supervisor at BT to go back to study at college.
After completing a qualification in Cake Decorating at the college, Paz used his skills in retail and marketing to grow the business.
Paz spoke about his pride at what he has done and how the official badge from Cake Masters was the biggest honour for him.
He said: "They give you an official badge you can use on your website and your social media, so it's so cool to be officially featured as an official cake master.
"People joke with me all the time saying 'Here comes the cake master of Wolverhampton' but now I can actually say that because of being featured in the magazine."
Paz has also said he will aim to do more social media videos and online classes to help people during the coronavirus lockdown.
