From wedding cakes to specialty custom cakes, we have a passion for baking and decorating! Our goal at Baked. is to combine your personal style and inspiration with our artistic talent, resulting in a delicious piece of art that is uniquely yours.
In addition to wedding cakes, we create all kinds of specialty cakes for birthdays, baby showers, graduations and engagements.
Our cakes and fillings are made from scratch, using fresh, local ingredients to ensure your custom cake tastes as good as it looks. We offer a wide array of flavor and filling choices, and all of our flowers and decorations are handmade and custom colored to match your vision.
My passion for baking began when my parents gave me my first Easybake Oven. I loved icing those tiny cakes and remember feeling so natural in the kitchen, even at 6 years old. I graduated from the Seattle culinary Academy in 2006 and shortly thereafter headed to Paris to really submerge myself in the world of pastry. I returned to Seattle in hopes of one day opening a cake bakery because I loved the artistic aspect of cake decorating. Five years later, with the help of my friend and business partner Kristina, Baked Custom Cakes was open for business. When I'm not at the bakery you can find me kickin' it with my husband Andrew watching any kind of documentary or sharing the roast chicken at Le Pichet. I love any and every film by Wes Anderson and any and every album by The Black Keys . Also, I love to travel and am slightly obsessed champagne...It's the perfect drink!
Two of my greatest joys in life are food and traveling. Mealtime was always a huge part of my childhood growing up in a Sicilian family and I was always by my grandmothers side helping in the kitchen. Once I graduated from The Art Institute of Houston, I traveled the world working in a variety of kitchens. My travels included a Coast Guard icebreaker in the Arctic, McMurdo Station in Antarctica and a fishing camp in Alaska, as well as small specialty bakeries in between. Through all my experiences I figured out that baking and decorating cakes was where my passion was the most. Natalie and I met baking at a small cafe and had both been making cakes on the side...so we decided to go for it and start our own thing! We are pretty much complete opposites with the exception that we are huge foodies and we love creating cakes together. When I'm not decorating cakes, I love spending time with my hubby, Chad and our dog, Coda anywhere outdoors with our friends...camping, hiking and music festivals!
