Welcome my creative life.
Professionally educated and trained as an interior designer with a BFA from O’More College of Design in Franklin Tennessee. I have worked with NYC firms on projects for grand hotels and resorts, fast paced New York offices, retail showrooms and high end NYC residential homes. My love and experience in design carried over to my passion for baking and sugar art that was always present. Eventually, sugar art won over my heart and for now I have put away the floor plans and paint books to focus solely on my dessert catering company.
This my collection of sugarcoated joy! Sugar is my love language and I want to help people create wonderment for their loved ones. For more than a decade I have honed my techniques and skills on center of attention cakes, cookies and dessert tables. My first projects were for my children & family, then friends and then friends of friends and so on. I created a blog (turning my name into a palindrome for the title) to showcase my parties & projects and then an etsy shop at the request of my blog readers asking for the products I featured in my posts.
While I have to admit, I don’t blog at www.nikkiikkin.com anymore, its still a great resource for fun party ideas and I keep the site live as an archive of my past work.
Thanks to wonderful referrals (& instagram), my local NYC clients now keep me very busy with cakes, cookies and dessert tables. What began as a part time, home based bakery has developed into a full fledge business in commercial kitchen space located in Brooklyn’s Industry City. While I intend to continue to focus on working one on one with clients to create dreamy cakes full of whimsy that delight the the child in all of us, I am also available to take commissions for corporate dessert catering and cakes at venues that required licensing and insurance. You may also catch me time to time at local markets around NYC.
If you’d like to follow along in my current projects I am active in social media! My Instagram account: @nikkiikkinbklyn is full of pretty posts daily of my projects and life in NYC.
