Angelica Aguilar - Tapia was born in Mexico in the state of Puebla in a town called Chiautla de Tapia on November 13, 1983. Raised in the United States since the age of 2 years, she never forgot her roots. Her heart will always be with Mexico and always takes up her origin with pride. Belonging to two completely different countries she always practice her American customs as much as the Mexicans customs in her beliefs, cuisine and art.
From childhood she liked art, music, poetry, literature, holistic medicine, nature, history, culinary arts and the mystical. Best of all is that all these "hobbies" join one artistic passion ... Gelatin Artistry. She discovered the artistic gelatins in the spring of 2008 by her father who, knowing that she likes to practice on pastries, bought and brought home some of this incredible desserts. She was so in love with these jellies that she did not know whether to eat it or save it, but such was her curiosity she decided to try the beautiful gelatin which unfortunately had no taste in her opinion, so she began to investigate this art on the internet, but found nothing that could guide her at that time, so first she practiced a homemade recipe and then tested with different utensils to make this flowers until she was creating and discovering several things, such as when the pistils were mistakenly circled above, this looked like the baby's breath to her, learning from this mistake that could give a touch of elegance and a more natural look to her flowers, so she began adding baby's breath "cloud" or "bridal veil" as it is called in Latin America.
When she published her first creations online, she began receiving numerous calls inquiring as how to make these flowers. Seeing that she could succeed with her creations she devoted to practice and create and feel safer going with this gelatin art field. She later became an instructor. Thus she began this career in 2008, choosing the name "Blossoms by Angelica" for her business. As an instructor not only does she make surrealistic gelatin artistic but also markets her own products for the preparation of this culinary delicacies. She is also the creator of the "Gubia-needle" tools that are specially hand crafted to create the encapsulated gelatin flowers, which are available on this website.
So this is how Blossoms By Angelica was born and though gelatin artistry began as a hobby for her, she became an instructor of this art from the age of 24, she always has kept her feet on the ground and is always trying to innovate for her students. Even with her short career she shows so much intricate and complex detail on her work that most people think she haves more years of experience.
Her secret has always been to see things from another angle, that is why in her teachings she tells her students: "Your gelatin is your blank canvas, so create!"
