Hi there! My name is Jennifer! I have a degree in Interior Design and a passion for cake! I have always been in the kitchen. Even as a young child, I vividly remember getting excited about sprinkling the cinnamon & sugar inside my grandma’s homemade cinnamon rolls. I loved how they would slowly rise, the feeling of the dough and the smell in the air. My love for the kitchen only blossomed from there.
In 2009, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and decided to rid my diet of gluten. I kept a food journal and followed a bland diet, then slowly introduced new common allergies to see what my body could tolerate. Each time, gluten and I never got along. So, I had to say goodbye to not only my grandma’s famous cinnamon rolls, but all my baked goods as I had known them. But I quickly realized there are tons of options and products available. Certain restrictions don’t mean you have to give up double chocolate fudge cake altogether, but just that you have to find a way around it.
I started baking for family and friends upon request. The more I did it, the more I felt satisfied and fulfilled. So together with my mom, The Wildflower Kitchen was born! A way to utilize my love of baking and eye for design.
After all, cake is for life not just birthdays!
Hi! I’m Cathy. My passions in life are family, baking and interior design. I love to create things that look pretty.
My first memories of baking are from when I was a child around the Holidays, throughout the month of December I would help my mom bake Christmas cookies and candies. We would make a couple different recipes each time we baked and put them in the freezer in the basement for our Holiday get-togethers. My mom would get frustrated with me because when it came time to get them out to plate them, there were always some missing as I would sneak cookies out of the freezer. I would eat them frozen right there in the basement so she didn’t see me. I think that is where my love for frozen cookies came from. To this day I would rather eat a frozen cookie than a warm one right out of the oven.
As the years went by and life got busy I baked from time to time but my passion for it got renewed when Jennifer started spending so much time in the kitchen. At times we can be a little competitive as to whose cake tastes better or who made it look prettier but that has only made us better at what we love to do. Realizing how much time we spend talking about recipes, ingredients, baking and decorating cakes and cookies, we decided we need to share our creations with others. This is something we have always dreamed of and we decided to make that dream come true, hence The Wildflower Kitchen!
After all, baking is an art, you not only get to make food taste good but look pretty too.
