My name is Agata. I'm originally from Poland, but since 2001 my home is on this side of the Atlantic Ocean.
My Mom is a wonderful cook and baker, so I grew up enjoying and admiring her creations. Soon, I discovered that a love for baking runs in my blood as well.
I am a born artist with wild imagination searching to express myself in painting, drawing, and sculpting so naturally enough one day I married both of my passions - baking and art. Effect? It's a unique compilation of pure enjoyment for your eyes as well as your taste buds. Simply: edible art.
I wouldn't be myself if I didn't add some twists here or there. So this is why - except classic flavors - I offer some unusual ones, like chocolate-jalapeño with lime buttercream, ginger with rose frosting or Japanese green tea (matcha) with jasmine buttercream. The last one won second place in WTOP's cupcake contest in April 2013.
Why did we choose the name BECAUSE...? It's simple: there is always a good reason to have a cake; a cause that needs a "thank you", an "I'm sorry" or an "I love you"... It could be birthday or wedding, baby shower or graduation; or it could be just because you feel like something sweet today. Whatever is your reason to have a cake, cupcake or cookie BECAUSE will help...
So please, let us put a smile on your face and fork in your hand. Let's bake together - we'll do the work and you do the enjoying-every-bite part!
