Sweet Cheeks Baking

This week we received a wonderful package full of goodies from Sweet Cheeks Baking, and to show our appreciation I wanted to share this wonderful bakery with all of you!

“Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. is a fun, motivated, all-woman company, driven to encourage healthy ingredients in otherwise fabulously rich & delicious cakes, cupcakes, snacks & cookies, and breakfast breads. Our goal is to sneak in quality items such as flax seed, whole wheat, wheat germ, fresh juices and purees, and even gluten-free flours when necessary...never losing sight of the most important ingredient: great taste!

Donna Cellere, "The Left Cheek," formerly cooked for both Presidents Clinton & George W. Bush, Jr. at The White House and created chocolates and souffl├ęs at the French Embassy as well as the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo. She is a stickler for organization and cleanliness from her NAVY background and is a fabulous dancer to boot! She has been baking her whole life and continues to crank out amazing cakes one after the other with perfection.

Elaine Palminteri Ardizzone, "The Right Cheek," has owned & operated restaurants and now the bakery since graduating from Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration. To aid with flavor pairing and creation, her Sommelier degree from the Court of Master Sommeliers helps with both ideas for flavor combinations and the Sweet Cheeks' unique cake tasting format of "Component Tasting." She operates the business and designs the cakes from inspirations gathered thru art, nature, tattoo, and of course from clients' interests.

Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. has an amazing combination of talent, both in baking and design, and has been featured on FOOD Network's "Road Tasted with the Neelys" for their signature "Chewy Chocolate Cheeks" and Cheebee's Best Carrot Cakes as well as recently on TLC's "Ultimate Cake-Off" through our decorators Charity George & Christy Russell. Look for us again in the near future with more potential TV spots...Go team!” –Elaine
