People have always told Wahkuna Baldwin to get her head out of the clouds, to come down from those blue skies and face reality. She's such a dreamer, in fact, that even her current business started as fantasy: enrolled in an entrepreneurship class at Temple University's Fox School of Business, Baldwin envisioned a fictional company named Blue Skys Bakery. A decade later, Blue Skys finally came to light, and so she remains comfortably among the clouds, crafting cakes and other sweets to deliver among New York's boroughs just miles from her current home in Skyhattan.
A graduate of Southeastern Academy, a culinary training school in Florida, Baldwin first learned to cook three-course meals at the age of 11. Today, in addition to baking tiny delicacies such as chocolate-covered cheesecakes and sweet-potato-pie pops, Baldwin applies that experience as a personal chef for clients throughout the tri-state area, helping them make healthier food choices and fold napkins into small likenesses of Julia Child.
