At the age of 30, Scurio was discovered and filmed to appear as a top-notch baker on the Food Network’s popular “Holiday Wars” show.

Scurio has had a part-time job since he was 13; spent nearly every weekend of his adult life baking cakes; and he spends all his free time cooking, sculpting and designing unique, edible creations that are truly works of art.

Its purpose? To turn home-based pastry business Cake Monstah into “an empire”.

I am so grateful. … I want to turn Cake Monstah into an empire of art, entertainment, passion. everything is cake.
