Don't miss out on this opportunity to indulge in the fine culinary treats created by Monique Akeman, founder of Cake That!
Creativity is her name! Monique grew up with a passion for the creative arts and baking, since as early as the age of five. To date, you cannot keep Monique out of the kitchen! Cake That is the combination of everything Monique loves in life; the artistic creativity, scientific precision of combined natural ingredients, and marketing ingenuity to share her craft!
A penchant for making unique and breathtaking edible works of art - Monique followed her childhood dream. Monique enrolled into cooking courses and specialized in baked goods. A former Nanny, business graduate and a mother of two is now adding cake designer and baker to her repertoire. Not formally trained in pastry, Monique utilizes a slightly offbeat, non conventional, 'learn-as-you-go' approach.
Knowledgeable in the kitchen. Monique's quick learn ability has already earned her awards in local and statewide bake competitions. For three consecutive years Monique has been asked to participate and has won recognition for her edible treats at the CT Chef's Association annual competition, Brookfield Council on the Commons Bakery, and SkillsUSA Bake Show at Bristol Community College.
Exceptional attention to detail is a priority to Monqiue when baking her flavorful desserts. For more than seven years, Monique has been sharing her craft for friends and family members from small intimate gatherings to wedding receptions of more than 300 attendees.
