Remember how comforting a chocolate, cream filled snack treat could be with a cold glass of milk… tearing it out of the package and taking that first heavenly bite…or how a Brown SugarCinnamon Toaster Pastry was the perfect way to start your day? Or maybe you had a favorite layer cake that your Mom made only once a year. Perhaps you haven’t found your perfect cake… you’re a searcher, looking for the perfect combination of cake, filling and frosting. Nuts or no nuts? Buttercream or meringue? Dark Chocolate or Milk Chocolate?

LISA J. OLIN – OWNER/ CAKE LOVER
Born and raised in New York, Lisa has been working as a Producer/Executive in the film and television industry for the past 20 years. Having a lifelong passion for cake and snack treats, Lisa wanted to create a unique bakery where everyone’s cake craving could be satisfied (even the picky eaters!). Being an expert on eating cake but not about baking cake, she set out to hire a pastry chef who shared her love of cake and hit the jackpot when she met Elizabeth Belkind. Cake Monkey Bakery is the fruition of Lisa’s skills and passion and she looks forward to opening her first storefront in Los Angeles.
