“You don't have to love cooking to cook, but you have to do more than love baking to bake. You have to bake out of love.”
Baking for friends’ family and loved ones is so special to me.
Whether I'm making a cake for a birthday, a baby shower, or simply to just celebrate life, I put all my Passion forth, and the result is a delicious and beautiful work of art made from the freshest ingredients that have been sourced locally.
I started my baking journey young. Coming from a family that loves to bake was the foundation of my budding career into the pastries I create and share with you today.
Growing up overseas I had many international influences. With each pastry make I share my life's journey with you.
A short note from Virginia
I have lived all over the world. I started my food career in New York City attending the French Culinary Institute. From there, I walked through many open doors Including being featured on MasterChef France, working on many well-known food TV show platforms, and offering my personal chef services to many influential New York City residents.
I started molding my future career into baking around 2013 as a way of bringing love and joy to my family and friends.
It was then that I realized my true Passion for baked goods, pastries, and cakes of all sorts.
I now reside in Charlotte North Carolina, a beautiful Southern city of inspiration. By being so close to the sea and mountains, I'm able to draw fabulous seasonal inspiration with each pastry and cake I create for you and your loved ones.
