Description: Silvia Arraya, 62, arranges a beautiful display of hand-decorated cupcakes for her small business, Magic Cakes, based in Denver, Colorado. Silvia moved from Peru to the United States in 2010 when her granddaughter was born. After working as a baked goods decorating instructor for Wilton and Joann Fabric, she soon started getting requests to decorate cakes for birthdays, weddings and special occasions. "I know someone is going to be happy when I make them cakes," she said. "It's good to be part of the happiness." Silvia was taught to bake and sew by her grandmother, Esther Collao, when she was a child in LaPaz, Bolivia. She specializes in edible, hand-painted sugar sculpture. Along with Magic Cakes, she also partners with bridal collections to complete wedding dress alterations from home. During wedding season, she alters up to 5 dresses a week.
