Mom. Pastry Chef. Lover of Polka Dots.
Born and raised in Evanston, Illinois, Ashley began baking shortly after she learned how to ride a bike. A few bake sales and dinner parties later, her hobby soon turned into her profession. After studying Culinary Arts in Chicago and working as a Chef in Art Smith's, Table Fifty-Two, she moved to Ireland on a working visa. There, she worked as a pastry chef in the heart of Dublin. She now resides with her husband and three children in Chicago.
"While the kids nap, I bake. I guess you could say I have a pretty full plate, but I love what I do and I wouldn't change a thing."

Because every occasion deserves treats.
"Ashley went above and beyond what I expected from her. She made the most adorable cookies for my daughter's 4th birthday. She is such a pleasure to work with, and even though I didn't actually meet her till the very end, I felt like we were best buds."
"Her customer service is amazing; she always responds in a timely manner.
I was very indecisive on what I wanted for my son’s cake but with her help and guidance, the cake and cupcakes turned out perfect."
"Had such a wonderful time working with Ashley. She took the images I sent her as my “inspiration pictures” and turned them into reality! She was kind, helpful and a pleasure to work with. So impressed by her work!"
"Ashley made the the beautiful cake and cookies for my sister’s wildflower themed baby shower. They were both delicious and left me wanting more. She was so sweet and easy to work with. I provided the theme and some pictures for inspiration and she really exceeded all my expectations with the final product."
