And the Golden Tier Goes To…

Last weekend, ACD and Lisa Mansour hosted our inaugural Golden Tier Awards in New York City, and what an event it was! We pulled out all the stops to celebrate the best talent in our industry, in serious style. Lisa Mansour hosted the awards show, which was held at the flagship iPic Theater and played host to some celebrity guests!

There was something a little magical in the air on June 10th, 2017….the inaugural Golden Tier Awards played host to the best artists in the pastry and dessert community. American Cake Decorating and Lisa Mansour hosted a ‘swanky’ evening of glitz and glamour that honored the best pastry and cake artists in the industry.

The evening featured an incredible pink carpet welcome event, cocktail party, awards show, and a fabulous after party – all hosted at the glamorous iPic theater in the heart of New York City. VIP guests included award hosts and judges, Ron Ben Israel, Kerry Vincent, Nicholas Lodge, Francois Payard, Biaggio Settepani, Sherry Yard, Nick Malgieri, and Colette Peters.
