Cakegirls is a custom cake studio located in the Roscoe Village neighborhood in Chicago. An experiment in cake design, Cakegirls has had a long road to success which started in Rochester, Michigan where the sisters spent years sharing a room, sharing coloring books and most importantly sharing their Easy Bake Oven.
Following their passions, Mary received a Bachelor of Arts in French after having traveled through Europe and studying abroad in the city of Orleans, France. Brenda soon followed with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish after having traveled and lived in Mexico City for two years. Between their various excursions, they spent most of their time working for a wonderful bakery in Michigan called Home Bakery. It was here that they found the creative niche for which they always had a natural talent. Custom orders for 3-D cars, elaborate wedding cakes, and designer birthday cakes gave them a chance to cut their teeth as beginning cake decorators. While in Michigan their love of cake decorating blossomed into an art. They soon realized that their specific talents could better serve their creative vision by opening their own cake shop.
