Hello all, my name is Anya, owner of Farmhouse Cakes. I’m a self taught baker and decorator. I’ve taken a few decorating classes but mostly, I figure things out as I go. I’ve learned so much and now I want to share what I’ve learned with you.
The name Farmhouse Cakes came from my roots. I’m rooted here in Virginia on a century old farm, in the Shenandoah Valley. The Farmhouse I live in, and operate out of, was built in 1904. The Farmhouse was built by my grandfathers maternal family. In my time here we’ve made some changes and updates but, this old house is always a work in progress.
Growing up on a farm, there’s no way I could fit in anywhere else. I learned a lot from the women in my family. My best memories came from around a table in a room filled with family. It’s always amazed me how grandmas cooking and baking could bring everyone together at the end of the day. One woman can bring everyone together. The trick is good food. I believe the way to anyone’s heart is through their stomachs. And you can say anything with cake!
I’m following my heart, my dreams, and my crazy ideas. Hopefully, we can inspire each other.
