We had the good fortune of connecting with Judith Hanson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Judith, can you tell us about an impactful book you’ve read and why you liked it or what impact it had on you?
One of my favorite recent books is “French Roots: Two Cooks, Two Countries, and the Beautiful Food Along the Way” by Jean-Pierre Moullé. The author inspires me because he cooks from the heart. You can really tell that he appreciates where food come from. His creations are how he shows his love and care for others. My cakes and pastries are always made with love and I never compromise on quality.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Nadia’s Indulgences is an artistic wedding cake boutique that specializes in bespoke cakes and confections. Our creations, with their artistic sophistication, are inimitable edible art that make for unforgettable weddings and other celebrations. No two cakes are alike.   One of my passions is creating artisanal sugar flowers and other edible sculptures to adorn and accent my cake creations. The high attention to detail that I bring over from my physician days, is a great asset when I hand craft and build up each flower, petal by petal.   Lastly, I take pride in our impeccable service. As all my clients are unique in their own way, I try to provide a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that is reflective of who they are and what they are passionate about. I think that’s what sets us apart.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Given my passion for sugar flowers, it should be no surprise that my favorite spot is the Dallas Arboretum! Walking around the gardens, I’m always inspired, not only by the flowers, but also by the organic flow and arrangement of the entire Arboretum. Other favorite spots include the Dallas Aquarium and the Museum of Art. Two of our favorite family restaurants are Tei Tei Robata in Knox-Henderson and Teppo in Lower Greenville.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to thank my family for all their loving support. My husband was the first one to support my career change after we walked out of a culinary school open house. He has always believed in me and my abilities. Time management while in culinary school was challenging, as our twins were still very young. My oldest daughter, Alexandra, who was in high school at the time, used to wake up extra early to take care of her siblings as we all rush out the door in the early morning to start our days. My family allowed me to focus and dedicate myself to the craft I love.
