On 5/27/20, Hunter hosted this online public program as part of the Hunter@Home series.
Sylvia Weinstock has been one of the world’s most sought-after confectioners: creating cakes as works of art for Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, Billy Joel, Mariah Carey and Sofía Vergara. Her career was unpredictable. After graduating from Hunter with a degree in psychology and education, she taught school, raised a family and survived breast cancer all before starting her enormously successful cake business.
In this conversation with Cristina Alesci, Sylvia reflected on reinventing herself later in life by becoming a baker, and finding both passion and balance in life—all key ingredients for a successful entrepreneur.
The event concluded with a live, virtual, Q&A.
