ShwaikaCakes was born out of passion for fine art and a love for
homemade confections 7 years ago.
One cake turned into many and here I am today.
In the beginning of 2018, I decided to pursue my passion to create custom cakes and various confections for others' special life moments out of my certified & licensed home kitchen in Concord, Ca. Each project is literally homemade and custom.
My professional background resides in a 12 year career in hospitality, restaurant special events and corporate business events. I developed my baking and decorating skills from natural talent and practice. However, I have spent a massive amount of time with some of the best Chefs in the San Francisco/ Bay Area, who have greatly formed my techniques and tastes.
Behind the Name
Shwaika (Shweikeh) is a villiage located in the Tulkarm Governorate in Palestine.
It is also the surname of my father's family.
In english, Shwaika translates to "Little Thorn".
I lovingly named my shop ShwaikaCakes to honor and carry on the heritage of my father's family and my Palestinian roots.
