About Us

Hi everyone! I'm Katryna!

It all started back in 2006 when I wanted to impress my husband with my "baking" skills. He was the self professed "cake king" and I knew nothing about them, except how to ask my mom to make one. For his birthday, I volunteered to "bake" him a cake. It was as appetizing and hard as a brick! From then on, I worked for many years to make THE perfect vanilla cake, THE perfect chocolate cake and THE perfect red velvet cake. 

In 2013, I wanted to start my own home-based cake business, and name it somehow after my daughter - thus Cupcake Sonata was born.I studied fine arts and graphic design as an undergrad and grad student, and I believe 

that my fine arts/graphic design background helps me to be a better cake artist. There are so many cakers out there. I wanted my bakery to have more of an artist flair, with a flash of geek or nerd, and a dash of the unexpected!

In 2017, Cupcake Sonata was renamed Sketches & Cream to more accurately reflect my artistic skills and to broaden my product offerings to cakes, cupcakes, cake pops and cookies. Our kitchen is also licensed by the Department of Agriculture and fully insured. I hope you'll think of us when you want a cake for your next event!

Here at Sketches and Cream, I use only the finest ingredients (Valrhona cocoa, Callebaut chocolate, organic eggs, Plugra butter...) and materials (artist-grade paintbrushes, KitchenAid mixer, rice paper, handmade modeling chocolate) to ensure quality in every piece. We strive to provide the best quality cake or artwork for our clients.

We are primarily a cake studio, however, please contact us to discuss portrait commissions. Eventually, we hope to sell prints of our work on the site!
