Team of Thistle and Honey Baking
Hey all! My name is Nikki, and I'm the face behind Thistle & Honey. Born and raised in Vermont, I have spent my entire life enjoying all of the delicious food that Vermont has to offer. As I've grown in my baking career, I have found joy in incorporating as many local delights into my bakes; from Vermont maple syrup, to apples grown at the orchard around the corner, honey from the apiaries next door, herbs from local farmers, and butter from Vermont creameries. Supporting local makers is incredibly central to my work, as is capturing the joy and love in each delicious bite.
Before I officially launched Thistle & Honey, I worked in a wide variety of kitchen environments. My first job was as the sole baker of a local coffeehouse, then I moved on to a large-scale production bakery, followed by being a prep cook/baker-turned-server at the BEST diner (now defunct, sadly), until my last professional turn as a baker at the cutest neighborhood bakery. Throughout all of these locales, I honed my skills and gained confidence as a cake designer & pastry maker.
My number one goal is to always create the most delicious and beautiful dessert table, bringing your wedding dessert dreams to life!
