Hi! I'm Heather, the baker and owner of Heathercakes Baking Co. I'm a follower of Jesus Christ, a wife, mom, singer/songwriter, ukulele player, and food nerd.
Music and baking are my two big passions. After high school, when it came time to decide where I was going to school and what I was "going to do" with my life, I chose baking (I mean, there's not a college program for "rockstar" is there?).
In 2006 I graduated with honors from the Art Institute of Houston with a Culinary Degree in Baking & Pastry and gave the student speech at the ceremony. I've been honing my craft since. I love learning new recipes and techniques!
As my home bakery, Heathercakes is all about combining European pastry elements (such as my delicious meringue buttercreams) with tender, moist American cake and doing it with precision and artistic style. Flavor is always first, and my experience as an illustrator and graphic designer has taught me that if you're going to do anything you should make it beautiful.
I hope my cakes and cupcakes can be a part of your next celebration - whether it's a birthday, wedding, anniversary, holiday, or cupcakes just because it's Tuesday and cupcakes are awesome.
Let's eat cake!
