Hello and welcome!
I’m Ashley, a multi award winning cake designer, sugar artist, and professional baker. Before I claimed this space of the internet as my own, I owned a consultation only studio bakery where I specialized in elegant wedding cakes and desserts. I closed my bakery to work full time teaching cake decorating classes, as well as to work full time on this blog to bring you everything I know about baking and pastry, cake decorating, and the ins and outs of owning a successful baking business.
With the Little Vintage Baking blog, I hope to inspire bakers with elevated, approachable, tried and true and truly delicious – mostly sweet, sometimes savory recipes. I use these same recipes to bake for my family and friends, and many of these recipes I have used in my business. I hope to share my industry knowledge and expertise to share tutorials, techniques and more that you can use to create beautifully decorated cakes, cookies and more. I hope you are inspired to use this blog as a resource to help you start, grow and elevate your baking business.
When I’m not working, you can find me, usually coffee in hand, spending time with my amazing, supportive husband, Matt, my sweet girls Ava and Alexa, our sweet old pup, Jack, a tiny but mighty calico, Mia, and a lazy, fluffy orange cat, Bogart.
Additional tutorials by me can be found on Sugar Geek Show and Sugar Street Academy, as well as in multiple publications like American Cake Decorating and Cake Masters magazine.
