Aimee Page began her baking career as a young teenager, working in a tiny French bakery set in a cobblestone courtyard in her hometown of Santa Cruz, California.
From here she expanded her skills, working as a pastry chef for several years in an eclectic Pacific rim/world cuisine restaurant in California and then the Italian-influenced Macrina in Seattle.
Aimee founded Hollyhock Cakes in Seattle in 1997, creating her unusual cakes and desserts for happy clients.
She later worked as a pastry chef and consultant in New Zealand; from an urban modern restaurant in the heart of the capital city's City Gallery, to the unusual and beautiful 'Missionview Gardens' in the wine country of the Art Deco city, Napier.
In 2010 Hollyhock Cakes relocated to the San Francisco and Monterey Bay area.
