Who is The Cake Robin?
I have always enjoyed cooking and baking, but my passion for baking took off in 2005 when my sister-in-law asked me to bake cakes for her wedding. My co-workers enjoyed critiquing my different recipes and helped me decide on the 9 different cakes that were the centerpieces of each table. Since then, I’ve enjoyed baking for friends and family, springing new recipes on them when I want to try something new. In 2011, I found a fabulous outlet for my baking with the nonprofit, Cake4Kids. I get to bake birthday cakes for youth in the foster care system with this wonderful organization. With my move to Redwood City in 2016, I took a position in the culinary program at Sur La Table in Palo Alto. Working my way up from Kitchen Assistant to Resident Chef, I expanded not only my baking repertoire, but greatly increased my savory skills too. I left Sur La Table in February 2020 to launch my own custom baked goods business, The Cake Robin.
