When I was a little girl, “grown-ups” always asked, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” I faithfully answered, “a baker!” I was very determined and started my professional journey at the age of fifteen. I began my day at 4:00 am, working as a pastry chef intern at a five star hotel before attending school. I continued on working for established, respected bakeries and was educated in the art of baking. After college I was lured by art & design and worked for 7 years as a design studio manager for the Flavia Co. in Santa Barbara, California. I also worked alongside my husband, facilitating corporate events, for nearly 8 years. 15 years later I am doing what I proclaimed to do as a child...I am a baker, never losing my passion!
Enjoy Cupcakes was established April 1st 2009 and currently has one storefront location in Los Olivos and one in Santa Barbara, CA where I am continually inspired by local produce, flavors, wines and respect for food. I take advantage of the ingredients that grow in my yard and what the local farmers are offering for sale.
