Meet the Maker:

WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
I’m Holly and I love creating all things sweet! My specialties are cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, and cookies, but I’m always up for a challenge!

DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
Most of my bakes start with a request from a customer or an itch to try something new in my kitchen! Each product requires a different approach, but every one includes from-scratch ingredients and my beloved, but beat up recipe book.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
When I have free reign to bake and create whatever I want, I draw inspiration from shabby-chic patterns and 1950’s-inspired pastel florals. The girlier, the better! In fact, my Kirchen Aid mixer is bubblegum pink! But I also take inspiration from what’s trending on Pinterest or In the cake decorating world. Lately, unicorns have taken over, which is fine by me!

FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I’m a stay-at-home mom of two sweet kiddos, but enjoy finding time to create in my kitchen. I love all things vintage, a good cup of tea, true crime, and being outdoors.

FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
I love all the fascinating architecture and how the amazing old buildings have been so lovingly cared for and preserved.

WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
Creativity is literally in my blood. I come from a family of artists. My dad is a pencil and water color artist and my mom is a fantastic baker, so I love getting to combine both elements into being a cake decorator!

WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
Never think you aren’t capable of achieving success in the area you’re passionate about. Start where you are and practice as much as you can!

*I’m always taking orders and would love to help make your special event a little sweeter. Thank you for supporting local artists and makers!
