My Christofle Table By...

Cake Boy

Frank Adrian Barron started his baking adventure in 2012 after moving to Paris from San Francisco. Living in France, a country celebrated for its pastry prowess, certainly has its perks. Think Mille-feuilles and Mont Blanc. Surprisingly, finding a simple cake covered in buttercream proved to be difficult. So, he started baking them himself! 

He hosted countless afternoon cake tastings for his friends to try new recipes and soon received special requests for his buttercream creations. And voilà! He quickly earned the nickname "cakeboy".  Adrian does all of his baking in the Marais and his cakes occasionally pop up in a few select Paris cafés.
