About the Chef

Anne Byrn headshot_Ashley Hylbert.jpg

Anne Byrn is the former food editor of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and a graduate of La Varenne Ecole de Cuisine in Paris. She is also the bestselling author of the Cake Mix Doctor cookbook series. Anne never intended to become the Cake Mix Doctor. She just needed last-minute solutions to the ever-ending requests for birthday cakes, bake sale creations, and dinner party desserts. And finding the cake mixes lacking in real flavor, she added fresh fruit, peanut butter, vanilla, coffee, Kahlua, whatever was on-hand to doctor them up and make a better cake. She wrote a book about it – the Cake Mix Doctor, the best-selling cookbook in 2000. The Cake Mix Doctor series have nearly 4 million copies in print.
