I saw on social media that you bake at home in your pink kitchen, is that safe?
I do bake at home in my pink kitchen because it is where it all started! The pink kitchen is where all of my recipes were developed and tried and it will always be a sentimental part of the growth of this business. While I still bake in the kitchen for friends & family as well as for recipe development, all customer orders are made and packed at our ghost commercial kitchen facility. Cakes you see in the pink kitchen are for content, friends, and family only.
