CakeLove is all about love.
Warren Brown started CakeLove in 2002 because he always enjoyed sharing his love for food. He started making Thanksgiving meals for his family at 14. He cooked meals for his roommates in college. He even created a study group called Gastronomy and the Law when he was in law school and shared his culinary experiments with his law school classmates. CakeLove is just a natural extension of what he's been doing all his life: bringing people together through food. This desire to share the love continues to drive CakeLove today.
CakeLove in a Jar is the result of engaging with his customers and soliciting their ideas and feedback. He was very excited to be able to use their input and create something delicious.
