Our very own Sugar Shaker…Engaged!

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

Our darling Krista is not only a beautiful, sexy woman but is also our Official Sugar Shaker, winner of Food Network “Cupcake Wars!” and the first person ever hired at Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. – the original TEAM CHEEKS member!   Krista LOVES games, is incredibly fit, and is the ultimate challenger… so it’s not surprising that when Mike got down on one knee in Jackson Hole, WY, it was during a ski vacation that Krista WON while competing on “WHEEL OF FORTUNE”…woo hoo!!!

Here they reveal an intimate look into their home life downtown with these incredibly special engagement photos by LOVERS OF LOVE

Krista worked her way from being completely untrained and youthfully “green” at Sweet Cheeks thru the ranks of baking like a crazy person to learning how to frost perfectly to taking the reigns of selling wholesale.  She has since wowed us all with her sales ability and has thus made some close buddies with most of San Diego top chefs – from private clubs to hotels to coffee houses and the Del Mar Racetrack!  She’s learned some great tips in tossing pizzas…!

In their spare time, Krista & Mike are dedicated to staying in shape and both show it!  They practice Pilates avidly and eat incredibly strict diets – you know, salads, quinoa, veggies, and lots of cake. 🙂

In a show of tremendous effort, multiple Cheeks rose out of bed on an early Sunday morning to cheer on their fearless leader Donna as she finished her very first triathlon!  WOO HOO!!!  So much fun to show support, probably just as cool as it was for her to participate.

Nick (our “Jack of All Cheeks”) of course led the charge by driving Donna up despite his head cold,

Lauren joined graciously, bringing yummy Sweet Cheeks breakfast treats for the crew and our NEARLY-PROFESSIONAL posters 😉

Kayla, Laurel, & I met up to prove that early rising can be fun with our beach cruiser bike ride down the boardwalk to reach the race scene – thanks for the laughs, dolphin sightings, and rusty chain mechanics to Kayla & Laurel! Thanks to Uncle Alex for sharing his bikes with us!

Krista caught up with vigor & enthusiasm, always the awesome cheerleader.
