Meet Marlo Scott of New York City. She left her high-powered media job to follow her bliss to baked goods. She now owns and runs Sweet Revenge, a cosy spot in Manhattan where cupcakes are strategically paired with wine.

Meet Marie Wright of New Jersey, U.S.A. She's a lead flavourist at International Flavours & Fragrances. Flavourists are chemists that create both natural and artificial flavours. Most stick to either savory, sweet, or beverage — but not Marie Wright. Her expertise is all three. Born in a small village in England, Marie moved over to the U.S. to become the boss of all things tasty.
