My name is Zoë Lukas, Founder and Creative Director of Whipped Bakeshop, an appointment-only bakery specializing in amazing cakes, cookies and cupcakes, as well as classes and group tasting events.
Growing up as the youngest of 4 kids, some of my favorite memories were always my mom's cakes for birthdays and holidays.
My dad traveled frequently and used his special bakery-radar powers to seek out deliciousness across the country (he had an encyclopedic memory of food establishments, and was once able to name dozens bakeries from memory in Baltimore city alone). He often brought us home delicious baked goods.
Between my mom and dad, I developed a serious sweet tooth! At the same time, I also developed a love of creativity and fine art. Drawing and painting from an early age, I went on to get a degree in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art, which was a transformative experience. I became obsessed with color and detail and I still paint daily!
My love of art and baking combined when I moved to Philadelphia in 2003 and worked for three of the most amazing bakeries, all the while continuing to create my own treats for friends and family.
After decorating a number of cakes and cookies that went viral on the Internet (Thanks Daily Candy), my high school sweetheart Brennen and I dove headfirst into the world of opening, owning, and thriving as bakeshop entrepreneurs amid the vibrancy of Fishtown, Philadelphia.
Through the years, we have continued to push the boundaries as we artfully weave stories together with our team through custom cakes, cupcakes, and cookies.
“We love Whipped Bakeshop! We have been getting birthday cakes and cookies from these guys for six years now and they never disappoint us. Their creativity and professional finishes are the best around, I highly recommend them!!!”
