Dylan Humphrey knows cake. He should. He’s been baking them for people since he was 13 years old. Inspired by his grandmother’s love of baking, Humphrey signed up for a Wilton Cake Decorating class at a Michaels store and hasn’t looked back.
He is now the owner of Kool Kakes by Dylan in Tyler, Texas.
“I’m the pastry engineer,” he says with a chuckle. “I came up with that in high school. I thought it sounded better.”
Humphrey has competed on “Cake Wars,” “Dallas Cakes” and “The Big Bake” on Food Network. He even took home the top prize on an episode of the Food Network’s “Christmas Cookie Challenge” in 2017.
