Kristine Kilner Britt was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a child, her mother taught her, along with her siblings, the techniques of cooking and baking. They spent many hours cooking and baking and remembers her family baking dozens and dozens of cookies to give as gifts to relatives and friends. She has also always been involved in arts and crafts.
In 2001, she decided to try her hand at cake decorating by attending a beginner’s class at her local arts and crafts store. She completed the 8-hour course and yearned to learn more. As additional classes were not popular in her area at that time, in order to perfect her technique, she began to research on her own, soon becoming a self-taught custom cake artist. She continued to create confections for her family and friends, trying different recipes and techniques, continuing to learn everything possible. Shortly after learning the basics, Kris was requested to create a friend’s wedding cake and her business, Sweet Dreams By Kris was born.
Since that time, she has been coming up with new and innovative ideas and recipes and has become a well-known custom cake artist in the area for her confections throughout the Butler and Pittsburgh areas. She was featured in the local newspaper as well as in a local magazine article. In 2006, she was requested by the local college to help design and teach a 26-week certificate course in cake decorating and was soon instructing others in her techniques. Kris is married and lives in Butler, Pennsylvania.
