About the owner
Early on, Elana’s passion for baking began to take shape with her mom, baking for the holidays. Elana was always artistic and as soon as she realized she could take her artistic ability and mesh it with celebration cakes, she knew that she had found her passion.
After graduating high school, Elana went directly to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY and focused in Baking and Pastry. Elana trained under Certified Master Bakers, some of the most respected and talented chefs in the world. Upon receiving her degree, she came to Austin, Texas in order to pursue her dreams of becoming a professional wedding cake decorator.
Seeking to hone her skills, Elana began to work under Denise Nuernberger at LoveBirds Sweets. Together they created extravagant cakes and confections as well as ornate sugar flowers for brides.
