Tunde was born and raised in Hungary, home of many beautiful traditions. Before starting a family and moving to the USA, she studied economics, marketing and she is an MBA. She worked as a marketing manager at Hyatt Regency Budapest and later as a CEO of a small printing company.
She's been a stay at home mom since moving to the USA in 2004. She lives with her husband, her son and her twin daughters in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Although she always enjoyed arts and crafts, she never studied any form of it and started creating cookies only in 2013. She enjoys combining the old traditions with new techniques, creating new designs and sharing the art of cookie decorating.
Now, Tunde Dugantsi is a Hungarian gingerbread artist and cookie decorating instructor living in the United States. Gingerbread is an ancient tradition that is still flourishing in many European countries. Tunde combines the old traditions of her native country with modern techniques to create beautiful edible art pieces. She shares her art in her cookie decorating books, Youtube videos, live and online classes and her Saveur Blog Award Finalist blog.
Her work has been featured in local TV channels, newspapers, magazines and on the internet.
