Leigh Poulos

Leigh began her cake decorating journey ten years ago at the celebrated boutique American style bakery, Two Little Red Hens, on NYC’s Upper East Side. A life-long visual artist, she fell in love with the playful, versatile, painterly, and delicious medium of Swiss buttercream. Leigh now serves as Creative Director and Lead Decorator for Violet Handcrafted Cakes in Queens Village, Philadelphia, owned by fellow Red Hens alum Carey Madden. Violet was recently featured in Philadelphia Wedding’s “The Big List” as well as Philadelphia Magazine’s “9 Eco Friendly Wedding Vendors”. Leigh’s creations have been seen in New York Magazine and enjoyed by clients including Anthony Bourdain, Jane Krakowski, Katie Holmes, Henry Winkler, Elizabeth Moss, and world-renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Leigh and Carey have also collaborated on two instructional books, Sensational Buttercream Decorating and Buttercream Basics, both available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Target.com.
