There ARE a lot of talented women and we CAN do this job and we DO do this job. We were doing it a lot longer than you knew we were doing it because no one talked about us.
Born in Wyoming, Rebecca realized at an early age that baking would become more than a hobby. In 1999, she attended Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France, earning a Diplôme de Pâtisserie and secured a coveted internship at Hotel le Bristol.
Once her pastry studies were complete in France, Rebecca moved to New York where she worked in the renowned kitchens of db Bistro Moderne and Daniel, The Biltmore Room, The Red Cat & BLT Prime.
In 2007, she moved to Houston to work with Chef Ryan Pera at *17 Restaurant at the Alden Hotel. Rebecca was a contestant on Bravo Network’s Top Chef Just Desserts, where she valiantly battled with her left arm in a cast.
In 2015, Rebecca opened her brick and mortar and has continued to push the boundaries of what a bake shop can be by hosting her regular “Saturday Morning Bake Sale” and “Thursday Night Take Over” at Fluff Bake Bar.
She brings chefs from all over the US to participate in the collaborations both sweet and savory. Affectionately known in Houston as “The Sugar Fairy” Rebecca’s signature style creatively marries the tradition of French pastry with beloved homemade favorites reminiscent of childhood.
