Having been in the cake business for as long as I have, I've had the opportunity to meet other wonderful bakers who can throw the cake down so to speak. I wanted to take a minute to celebrate all the bakers out there by handing the spot light to a good friend and fellow cake artist Ashtyn Brown!
Ashtyn is the owner of a home bakery called Baked By Ashtyn. She is known for her fun and creative birthday smash cakes, Valentines treat orders, cupcakes, and other tasty creations!
In this post I talk with Ashtyn about her and her passion for baking as well as showcase her beautiful work!
Here We go!
Ashtyn, tell us about your love for baking. What sparked your desire to become a cake artist?
My love for baking, I think, started at a young age. I've watched my mom and both grandmas bake for sooo long! From making Christmas candy, sugar cookies on every holiday, and baking all the breads, rolls, and goodies in between! I think it was just something I grew up with. It's in my blood, you could say.
What is the creation you are most proud of?
I'm not sure that there is any one creation that I am most proud of. I look back at all the things I've made and all I can say is I'm so proud of myself and how far I have came by just teaching myself.
What is your favorite dessert to eat?
My favorite dessert to eat is definitely ice cream AND CAKE! The whole traditional birthday cake and ice cream is totally my jam!
What is your favorite dessert to make?
My favorite dessert to make is probably cupcakes. I love how simple they are but how by just adding these little decorations they can really surprise you! Along wit that I love doing smash cakes. I love making the Dino's wood creations and creatures, unicorns, all those fun little baby cakes!
