I have been baking for as long as I can remember. I spent my childhood in the kitchen baking with my mom, even my first job was working at a bakery.
I am now a certified pastry chef with a degree from the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts. However, my real baking and cake decorating journey started 7 years ago when I had my first child and couldn't find a bakery that didn't use artificial coloring and gmo ingredients. That's when I decided to start doing it myself. Now I find joy in helping other families get custom decorated cakes and cupcakes without any ingredients to feel guilty about.
Here's what makes us different!
First and foremost, our basic cake and cupcake flavors and icings are always dairy free and nut free.
Exquisite Bakes caters to ALL dietary restrictions. We have separate equipment and utensils we use for different dietary items. We are able to accommodate gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, nut-free, and soy-free.
**While we do use separate equipment and utensils, our kitchen does still contain these allergens. We do our absolute best to avoid cross-contamination, but there is always a risk. We do take allergies very seriously, all allergy friendly items get made at the beginning of the day, directly after sanitizing. Please be sure to make us aware of your allergy so we can take the proper measures**
Exquisite Bakes, All-Natural Desserts in just that... ALL NATURAL!
We pride ourselves in using the cleanest and best quality ingredients... and we mean that!
Everything that comes from our kitchen is, at a minimum, GMO-free. However, we strive to use as much organic ingredients as possible. We also NEVER use artificial dyes. ALL of our coloring is made from plant based colors ONLY!
No preservatives! No box mixes! No GMOS! No artificial flavors! No artificial colors! EVER!
While other bakeries use bleached flours, refined sugars, and premade mixes with preservatives... we don't use any of those.
