Annie’s Signature Sweets Story


Annie’s Signature Sweets was created out of my intense passion for desserts, a need to satisfy my huge sweet tooth and a need for something new after spending 10 years working as a Pastry Chef in restaurants and clubs all over the US.  Annie’s Signature Sweets was created in August 2017 and has been the best and most challenging thing I have ever done (besides going to Bali, which literally changed my life).

I finally am living my dream on my own terms. Annie’s Signature Sweets creates classic desserts with a twist and focuses on fresh, fun and unforgettable sweets. I cater desserts for events, parties and celebrations and teach baking classes.

My baking classes are interactive and fun and great for friends, team building, private parties, birthdays and more. My classes are not demo style, you will work individually and create your own flavors, toppings and learn how to replicate them at home.

My baking classes are laid back, fun, intimate and when you come, you will be joined by the best students ever! I have taught over 92 classes since February 2018 and I have several repeat students.

I was named the 5th best Pastry Chef in Cleveland by Cleveland Scene Magazine. I won 5th place in’s most sinful sweet contest with my pretzel Salted Caramel Cheesecake. My lemon lavender shortbread was in Cleveland Magazine as part of the “Cleveland S’more”, I have been on Channel 3 news and New Day Cleveland, I was featured in my high school alumni Magazine, I have been featured in the West Shore sun 3x since 2017 and made the front page in December 2018.

I love creating unique flavor combinations and everything that I make is made to order to ensure it is as delectable as it is beautiful.

Annie’s Sweets

I do “everything but the cake” simply because, after over a decade of creating desserts, cakes have been my least favorite thing to make and as a business owner, I get to do what I want.

My desserts include my best selling and famous heart shaped lemon lavender shortbread, my delectable fudge brownie bites, my sweet and savory tarts including my Rosemary Apple Goat Cheese tart and unique cheesecakes like my Matcha Chocolate Cheesecake or Salted Caramel Pretzel Cheesecake.

I create beautiful custom mini desserts for parties, celebrations, party trays for open houses, weddings, events and edible corporate gifts.
