About the Chef:

It's about time, you get to know, the lady behind the cakes. For those of you who don't know me, I am Shayanne Nelson and this is my story. I am from Los Angeles, CA where I was born and raised. I have three degrees, one of which is in Baking and Pastry. I am a classically-trained chef, that has made it my personal mission to learn as many cuisines and cooking styles as I can. I have been in the restaurant industry since 2011, starting as a baker for a local bagel shop and then gaining as much experience in the kitchen as I possibly could from there. I am the maker, baker, owner, creator, dishwasher, HR, heart and soul of Bleu Moon Bakery. I, along with my partner and our fur babies, Bleu (hint,hint), Scout, and Wynonna, run my business out of our tiny kitchen, in our apartment here in Las Vegas, NV. I have an allergy list as long as this story, which is why I bake the way I do. Pastries that anyone and everyone can enjoy (no restrictions). Conscious, creative, collaborative, unique, and custom to how you like and need it. This business is my passion, dream, and baby. Stay tuned for our never-ending adventures, we love having you join us on this journey. xoxo, BMB
