About Amirah Kassem

Baking icon and creator of the most Instagrammable cakes of 2019, Amirah Kassem’s Flour Shop lit up the internet. These insanely fun and delectable treats could be seen everywhere last year, as her hungry audience fell in love with her unique, signature delicious cakes filled like piñatas and stuffed with sprinkles, candies and other treats that explode upon cutting a slice. Starting in 2012, the Kuwaiti-Mexan chef began creating cakes that looked nothing like the cakes you’ve seen before, coming in shapes like popcorn, burgers. This past year, she launched her new cookbook The Power of Sprinkles and grew her colorful Instagram following to 40K+.
