Hi! I’m Kenzie, thanks for visiting! I have loved cooking and baking since I was a little girl – I think I owe that to my mom, who is a great cook and always let me help in the kitchen. There was a time when I was about two years through my undergrad when I distinctly remember sitting in my best friend’s basement crying to her, being so fed up with school and seriously contemplating dropping out to go to culinary school. I ended up going on a study abroad instead where I tried my first macaron. I was in love.
Fast forward a few years to when I met my husband, Aaron (he is the sweetest, by the way). He knew I had tried (and failed miserably, I might add) to make macarons since coming home from my study abroad, so he signed me up for a cooking class for my birthday so I could learn how to make my beloved European treat (I told you he was a sweetheart).
Ever since then, I have been baking macarons for myself and family. When friends caught word of it, they all encouraged me to start selling them…so I did! I’ve had lots of fun with my little macaron business for the past year and a half, and it’s been crazy to see how much it’s grown! This summer, I made cakes for a few family birthday parties and posted pictures of them to my macaron Instagram account. I didn’t realize what that would do, but that completely transformed my business! Since then, I have decided to officially take on cakes (birthday cakes, wedding cakes…I do it all!) and it has been a lot of fun! I can be much more creative with cakes than macarons but I love doing both.
On a personal level, I’ve been married since September 2014 and we have a crazy little pug named Lola. We love to travel, we are major “foodies,” and we love to spend time with our friends and family.
I’d love to create something special for you! I’d be happy to answer any questions you have if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
