Originally Born and Raised In Philadelphia I attended Culinary School and graduated from the Philadelphia Restaurant School in 1997. I then was hired and worked for The Ritz Carlton Hotel where I learned my discipline. The ritz closed for year and then became a Starwood Property starting with
The St Regis which then turned in to the Westin. This is where I learned everything from management, ordering and everything in between. I then went onto French Based Hotel Sofitel-Philadelphia. I was certified in Viennoise Pastries, Boulangerie from Lenotre. And the I decided to make the move to Hawai'i.
One day in 2004, on a whim, I sold everything I had, bought a one way plane ticket to Hawai'i in the search of a dream and I never looked back. I was hired as the civilian pastry chef for The Marine Corps and was there for a few years and then in 2006 I took another plunge started my own Cake Company, Sunshine's Cake Creations which was started in Culinary school as a big dream. I was very successful for 8 years until I relocated to Hampton Roads. I have been featured in many Hawaiian and National Magazines. We have been featured on Tv, online and in the paper for our outrageous and classic cakes.
I moved here to the Hampton Roads area in 2013 and I began to sell my vegan food at Virginia Beach Farmers Market. In 1 year I exploded and made such amazing customers looking for vegan food so I took another plunge in 2017 and expanded to have cafe. We have a 20 - 25 seat cafe offering all kinds of savory foods and baked good. I have a full staff of amazing employees that are here to help you with all your vegan food needs. We offer gluten free, grain free and raw vegan options as well as the good 'ol classic foods, specialty cakes, catering, lunch catering, in cafe parties and tea parties.
Please come in and see us and try some awesome food.
And the story of my life continues......
