Born and raised in Atlanta, GA I’ve always adored sweets. Both of my grandmothers were excellent bakers, and I assume I inherited their gift of baking homemade desserts. I graduated from Georgia Southern University in 1999 with a BBA in Marketing. As a college student I would always experiment trying various cake and brownie recipes. Not all were successful, but I enjoyed challenging myself to learn and better my baking craft. To continue learning I decided in 2008 to enroll in a baking & pastry diploma program at The Art Institute of Atlanta.
For several years I would bake cakes for family and friends. In 2010 Kakestry was created in my kitchen because of my passion for baking and friends encouraging me to sell my Kakes. The name Kakestry (pronounced cake-strie) is my twist on the word pastry but I decided to use cake and spell it with a K since my last name is King. It is essential that every homemade Kake, KupKake, cheeseKake and custom Kake is created with love. My motto is “Putting the icing on the Kake for every occasion.” Got Kake?
