🎀 Meet Lindsay Ann 🎀

Hi, I'm Lindsay Ann! Baking Blogger & YouTuber from Los Angeles, sharing my award winning dessert recipes, irresistible party bites, and sweet inspiration, so you can bake up some happiness to share with family and friends ☺ 



I love creating pretty, pink, sprinkle-covered desserts, adorable bite-sized party food and festive treats for entertaining, to inspire you to bring loved ones together and put smiles on faces, with each bite of homemade happiness.



Whether you only bake once a year, and want to whip up a little something sweet and easy for a special occasion, or you are the "hostess with the mostess", looking for some fun inspiration in the kitchen, I've got something for everyone.



You may recognize me as Food Network's "Cupcake Wars" series premiere WINNER, proving that anyone who has the dream to learn how to be a master in the kitchen, can do it with a little practice and a pretty apron, one recipe at a time. I didn't grow up in the kitchen or come from a long line of great bakers... I started with zero recipes handed down to me, and a mom that calls a slice of cheese on toast, "cooking" ;) Having grown up in a house where a home-cooked meal or a from-scratch dessert was a rare occurrence, I found myself in my mid twenties, determined to learn everything I could about the kitchen, to be able to make "homemade" a part of my home. I had discovered a world I had not been introduced to in the past and quickly found myself intrigued. I had immediately fell in love with the craft, and baking became my passion, my world, my happy place, my life.


As a self-taught baker, I encourage you to learn from my trial and errors in the kitchen, and try out some of my step-by-step recipes, so you can successfully create "the best ____ ever", every time. From the best desserts ever, to savory family favorites, bite-sized appetizers, festive party treats and more, come learn the art of entertaining and bake like a pro, right in your own kitchen!



It all started in 2009, when I began my dessert catering company, "Dollhouse Bake Shoppe", in my home town of Los Angeles, CA. Shortly after learning everything I could about the art and science of baking, I was chosen out of a nationwide search for the country's top bakers, to compete on the Food Network's series premiere of "Cupcake Wars”, in June 2010, and proved my talent by winning first place. I made my second Food Network television appearance shortly after in January 2011 as a featured “Cupcake Wars Champion". I immediately accrued a growing fan base across the globe, begging for my recipes and baking tips, so I decided to take my passion worldwide and transitioned from catering and baking for local events, to sharing my trade nationwide, through the lindsayannbakes.com baking blog.



In November of 2013 I launched my video series on YouTube (youtube.com/LindsayAnnBakes), where I share my favorite recipes, baking tips, and DIY entertaining ideas and party treats.


Nothing makes me happier than a plate full of cupcakes in one hand, and my #1 taste tester in the other.
