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 Buzzfeed, Instagram, Country Living, Pop Sugar, and Business Insider. I’ve had the honor of being a content creator for 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 focusing on content creation across my social platforms, and my ongoing partnership with the Food Network, which includes weekly livestreams on the Food Network Facebook Page. You can see them every Wednesday at 7:45pm EST.
