2 A.M. RISE AND GRIND
I’m definitely a morning person—even though it’s so early. I take my shower, get coffee, and I’m ready to tackle the day. I’m known for having a mohawk, so I straighten my naturally curly hair and gel it. If you see me without a mohawk, I’m usually really, really tired. I have two dogs and two cats, so I wake them up— that’s one of the best parts of my morning.

4 A.M. FRESH START
We bake fresh every day, so I assist our bakers with what we produce on a day-to-day basis: cakes, cupcakes, cake jars, donuts, and pastries.
7 A.M. READY TO ROLL
We open the doors, and it’s go-time! We might have 50 to 100 cakes that need decorations to be put on—we take care of those final touches so that they're ready to be picked up.
9 A.M. LUNCH BREAK
The bakers and I are talking about lunch. Nothing is ever open that early, so we might have frozen pizza, chicken nuggets, whatever we can find in the grocery store that we can heat up and isn’t breakfast. It becomes a fun bonding time!
10 A.M. DOWN TO BUSINESS
For the next four hours, I do design work. If we’re doing a 3-D rollercoaster cake or one with snowflakes all over it, we make those decorations ahead of time.

4 P.M. HOMEBOUND
Depending on how busy it is, I’m here until 6 or 7. Otherwise, I’m heading home to hang out with my two chunky English bulldogs and my partner and have dinner together. It’s crazy because I bake all day—but I love cooking new recipes.
9 P.M. LIGHTS OUT
I say goodnight to my babies—my dogs and cats—and I'm asleep in five minutes.
