From Schoolteacher to "The Queen of Cake"
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Sylvia Weinstock ’51 in conversation with Cristina Alesci, CNN Business and Politics Correspondent. Join us after work for a sweet treat with Hunter alumna Sylvia Weinstock! She has been one of the world's most sought-after confectioners: creating cakes as works of art for Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, Billy Joel, Mariah Carey and Sofía Vergara. Her career was unpredictable. After graduating from Hunter with a degree in psychology and education, she taught school, raised a family and survived breast cancer all before starting her enormously successful cake business. In this conversation with Cristina Alesci, Sylvia will reflect on reinventing herself later in life by becoming a baker, and finding both passion and balance in life-- all key ingredients for a successful entrepreneur. The event will conclude with a live virtual Q&A.
Venue: Hunter College
695 Park Avenue
