Dana Herbert, owner of Desserts by Dana resides in Bear, Delaware. Chef Herbert lives and breathes in the sweet and artistic world of pastry art, where flavor and color come to life in his wonderful wedding cakes, sugar sculptures, and custom cakes for all occasions. Dana is an expert sugar artist with lots of nicknames. He’s known as “The Sugar Daddy” because of his work with pulled and blown sugar, as well as Delaware’s King of Cakes.

Chef Herbert was recently chosen to be one of the contestants to compete on Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker, a hit show on TLC, which premiered in December 2010.

Dana is a 1998 graduate of the University of Delaware (UD) with a Bachelor’s degree in Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management. While at college, Chef Herbert was involved in the National Society of Minorities in Hospitality (NSMH), serving as the chapter president and eventually the National Chairperson for the organization.

After graduating from UD, Chef Herbert continued his education at Johnson and Wales University (JWU), where he completed a second Bachelor’s Degree in Culinary Arts and an additional Associates

of Arts in Pastry. During his study at JWU he worked for the Four Seasons Boston. After pastry school, Dana worked for Philadelphia Downtown Marriott as the in-house Pastry Chef. During that time Dana also had the unique opportunity of being the Pastry Chef for the 2006 American Culinary Federation National Convention and cooking for the Philadelphia Chapter of the Chaine Des Rotisseurs. Currently, Dana is the Head Chef at the Delaware River and Bay Authority in New Castle and also a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. (Wilmington alumni Chapter), the International Cake Exploration Society (ICES), and the American Culinary Federation.

Dana had made a 6-foot sugar flower arrangement for the Philadelphia Flower Show, a Philly sports-themed piece for ESPN, sculptures for the Paris Gourmet and Cacao Noel Pastry Exhibition. Sugar sculptures can be more delicate than single-pane glass, so it takes years to master the complicated relationship between sugar and temperature. An average showpiece takes eight painstaking hours to complete. Chef Herbert has clearly honed his skill through time and effort to create his wonderful pieces.

Chef Herbert has done cakes for Jill Biden, Asante Samuels of Philadelphia Eagles, Kijafa Frink fiancé of Michael Vick of Philadelphia Eagles, Jimmy Rollins of Philadelphia Phillies, Dick Vermeil of Philadelphia Eagles, famous Jazz musician Najee, Marriott, Sysco, Philadelphia International Airport, HSBC, University of Delaware, and more. Chef Herbert has also been featured on WEtv for Wedding Cake Wars, TLC’s Ultimate Cake Off and local tv programs.

Chef Herbert’s work was also featured in a section of American Cake Decorating Magazine as well as Essence, Delaware Today and many more. Desserts by Dana had also been selected for the Best of Delaware 2010 for contemporary wedding cakes.
