Patrons commission the confectionary artists at Blue Skys Bakery to create custom-decorated cake pops, and diaper cakes outfit new arrivals in a cascade of baby accessories. Skewers support morsels of cake in double-chocolate or vanilla flavors before a candy coating cloaks the scepter’s sweet sphere to match a customer-chosen design theme. Tux cake pops feature a chocolate vest that frames an icing bowtie and buttons, making them ideal for formal events and doubling as edible conductor’s batons. Three tiers of baby accessories take form in decorative diaper cakes, which come in “rolled” or “spiral” varieties with pink, blue, or custom-colored ribbons and embellishments. Each cake bundles necessary accessories such as bottles, bibs, baby body wash, and guides to infant-mother telepathy.
Blue Skys Bakery
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.
