The goal of chelsweets.com is to simplify recipes and techniques, to make baking easier and more approachable. 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 love testing new flavors and recipes, and experimenting with different decorating techniques. Sharing what I learn along the way, I hope to encourage other home bakers to find their own joy in the kitchen, and see that baking a cake from scratch isn’t as intimidating as it may seem.
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 have also been on the Ben and Pickler show, and Home & Family, which were both amazing!
I currently am focusing on content creation across my social platforms, and my ongoing partnership with the Food Network. This includes livestreaming on the Food Network Facebook Page (first Wednesday of each month at 7:45pm EST), and creating content that is shared across the Food Network’s social platforms.
