Silver Whisk Bake Shop
Did you ever feel like you were missing something? Me too! Little did I know, that "missing" feeling for me were cakes and confections. Let's think about it... are they delicious? Yes. Do you feel amazing when someone gives you a sweet treat? Yes. Are they a symbol of celebrating something awesome? Yes. The best part about it is that you can make them look as fantastic as they taste. I started out by making a few cakes for friends not thinking much about it. It was honestly very, very stressful and baking is a science so one extra tablespoon of something could be a nightmare. With time, practice, and patience, I became better and better and now it's all I can think about (an obsession if you ask me). I can't believe I have the opportunity to create something magical for special moments people's lives. It seriously cannot be beat! I can't wait to work with you to make your special day that much more special.

Sugar Studio
Iranian-born and raised in Texas, Nika grew up watching cooking shows at an early age, always excited to see what the chefs would create next. After having lived in The Netherlands, New Jersey, and California, Nika began her culinary career at The French Pastry School in Chicago, Illinois. There she spent each day learning classic French pastry techniques under the direction of chefs Jacquy Pfeiffer, John Kraus, and Sebastien Cannone, MOF. As part of her training, Nika completed an externship at Blackbird, one of Chicago’s most respected modern fine-dining restaurants. Following pastry school, Nika had the distinct pleasure of opening the Mobil Five Star-awarded Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, working with Executive Pastry Chef Frederic Robert. In October 2005, Nika joined the team at the MGM Grand at the Michelin Star restaurant, Joel Robuchon. By January 2006 she joined the AAA Four-Diamond restaurant FiAMMA, where her passion for FiAMMA’s concept and menu quickly catapulted her to the role of Pastry Chef in February 2007. After relocating back to Los Angeles in 2010, Nika joined the pastry management team at Bottega Louie. She has also spent time in the kitchen of Brentwood’s award-winning bakery, Susie Cakes. After having spent years in commercial kitchens, Sugar Studio was born out of Nika’s tiny studio apartment in Brentwood in November 2012. After a move to the San Fernando Valley, now all items are made-to-order in her kitchen in Sherman Oaks, CA. Nika’s early experiences shaped her longtime passion for pastry. She credits her mother for instilling the creativity it takes to create mouth-watering desserts, and her father for her attention to detail. She continues to build upon her foundation of knowledge and loves knowing that with dessert as a final impression, she can turn a great occasion into an unforgettable one.

Cake Queen LA
Cake Queen LA is a micro bakery in Los Angeles, CA. Every cake is custom and made-to-order. I offer a year round menu of classic flavors, with seasonal specials. This story begins 9 years ago with a banana-chocolate cake for my oldest daughter’s 1st birthday. I wanted to make something high in quality, low in sugar and beautiful. At the start of 2022 - a second child and a dozen birthday cakes later - friends began asking me to make them cakes. They called me the Cake Queen and quickly a fun little endeavor turned into a small business. As an artist, a lot of care and intention goes into every design. I want to serve to my customers only what I would feed my own family, which to me means organic flours, sugars and fruit, pasture raised eggs and home grown edible flowers. My recipes feature only a fraction of the sugar found in any store bought cake, resulting in a healthier and truly more flavorful treat.
Wedding Cake and Dessert
As a cake artist, I believe in transparency when it comes to my style and expertise. My strengths lie in crafting cakes that embody my signature aesthetic - characterized by abstract designs, intricate sugar art, and personalized touches that truly reflect your vision. I am committed to originality and will never replicate the work of fellow artists or even my own creations. Every cake I create holds special significance, narrating a meaningful story that resonates with you. As you can probably guess, just like how no two tattoos would be exactly the same if different artists did them, the same thing goes for cake design. What I aim to do is make something unique and customized that showcases your personal taste and preferences.

Connor’s Craft Cakes
Welcome to Connor's Craft Cakes, your passport to a delectable journey through the world of artisanal cakes. My goal with each cake is to ensure that your identity is expressed in an artistic centerpiece cake that you couldn’t live without. My story began in Bend, OR, and took a detour through a career in Civil Engineering, proudly serving in the US Air Force. However, my heart was always in the kitchen, crafting delicious desserts with passion and precision. In 2022, I embarked on a new adventure in sunny San Diego, trading my corporate role for the joy of baking. While my professional path was far from confectionery, my love for creating delightful cakes had been a cherished secret. It wasn't until a family gathering in North County San Diego that serendipity struck. I baked three extraordinary cakes that left the crowd clamoring for more, demanding business cards, and contact information. The positive reactions couldn't be ignored, and I decided to follow my newfound calling. Since then, I've obtained the necessary licenses and permits, immersing myself in the art of cake design and baking. From weddings and bridal showers to birthdays and beyond, I've poured my heart and soul into crafting unique flavors inspired by fine dining and elevated cuisine. Each creation is a labor of love, and I'm thrilled to continue pushing the boundaries of taste and artistry to leave you utterly amazed and salivating for your next cake creation!
