The goal of chelsweets.com is to share my recipes, techniques, and ideas, and show that anyone can bake! I work full time as a digital client finance manager at a PR firm, and have slowly taught myself how to bake over the past few years. I’ve learned through trial and error, and by watching countless YouTube videos. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!!
I primarily make buttercream cakes, and always appreciate new challenges that help me expand my horizons.
I was born and raised in Seattle, and currently live in NYC. I started baking when I moved to NYC, in a kitchen the size of a closet. Baking has allowed me to meet so many wonderful people, and has led to some amazing opportunities. My work has been shared by Cosmopolitan, Instagram, Buzzfeed, Country Living, Pop Sugar,and Business Insider. I’ve also had to honor of contributing to the Food Network, Bloomberg, Buzzfeed, Cosmopolitan, and House Beautiful Magazine. I also recently made my TV Debut on the Ben and Pickler show, which was a blast!
I currently am a content contributor to the Food Network, and do weekly livestreams on the Food Network Facebook Page on Wednesdays at 7:45pm EST.
