Robin Dylan, Owner,
Cake Artist, Baker
She started decorating cakes at the age of 17. "I remember watching a cake decorator in the window at one of my favorite amusement parks in my youth. My parents made the comment that I was more interested in the cake decorator than the rides." Low and behold the dream had begun. She put herself through college decorating cakes. She took a beginning Wilton course, worked at a couple local bakeries and it was history in the making. Big or small projects, it didn’t discourage this 17 year old who proudly delivered her cakes across the county. She is also a part-time chef at our sister company Sam's Place
