Meet the Chef & Owner - Denise Valles
Denise was born and raised in Southern California. She found her love for baking at the young age of 11, this love grew stronger over the years with the support of her wonderful family and friends. After graduating high school in 2008, Denise knew that she wanted to go to culinary school. Graduating from Le Cordon Bleu with an Associates Degree, she was ready to jump full force into the pastry world.
With experience from many well known bakeries and restaurants in the Southern California area, including the luxurious Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, Denise knew she was ready to take on a business of her own.
Cakes by Denise, originally known as Sweet D's Cakes, became the real deal over 3 years ago. Cakes and pastries are designed and made to order from scratch by Denise daily. When you love what you do, you never work a day in your life.
