About Me

Bonjour! My name is Lynlee and I was born in São Paulo, Brazil, where I lived until the age of 11. The Brazilian party attitude must have seeped into my blood and stuck with me all these years! My family and I moved to Northern California and after high school, I attended the University of California at Berkeley, where I double-majored in Dramatic Arts and French and met my future husband. I spent a year studying at L’Université de Lyon, France {cultivating my adoration of all things French and Parisian} and upon graduation, began a career in the fashion industry. I spent 10 years as an Accessories Buyer in Southern California and got married to my college sweetheart in the meantime!

We moved to Las Vegas, NV soon after the birth of our daughter and have been here since. I founded Lynlee’s Petite Cakes in 2010 after throwing my daughter’s third birthday party when my love of planning parties, crafting and decorating cupcakes culminated into an undeniable passion! I quickly transitioned into the party world and began making cupcakes and fondant toppers. I am self-taught and have learned through lots of trial and error and some successes throughout the last couple of years. I adore the feeling of being inspired and getting the creative juices flowing, especially when planning and styling a party, and feel such a void when it’s over! But luckily, there’s always another reason to party!

Some other fun facts about me:

*I am obsessed with the 80’s! So much so, I threw myself a Growing up 80’s party!
*I adore everything Disney and love nothing more than to share this love with my daughter!
*Family means EVERYTHING to me!

I now focus on providing inspiration and tutorials for fondant and various party themes! In 2012, I launched publications to include both parties and fondant tutorials and my first book, Sweet & Unique Cupcake Toppers, was released in April 2014. My mission is to aid in planning and throwing an unforgettable and personalized party that will forever remain in the hearts of your friends and loved ones! ♥
