Becca Craig (IG @chefbeccacraig) is the Executive Pastry Chef at Cake Life Bake Shop in Fishtown. She recently was a contestant on The Food Network’s Best Baker in America, and previously baked behind-the-scenes on TLC’s Bakery Boss. Her biggest claim-to-fame, though, is that in 2017 she baked Beyoncé’s birthday cake.
In this episode, we hear the story of how watching the Food Network with her Craigslist roommate inspired her to start baking as an art form, and how her career quickly rose to TV Stardom and making sweet treats for Queen Bey.
