Our studio exists as a safe space for cakers, wannabe decorators and adults of all kinds to create something that they are not only proud of, but tastes delicious.
Welcome to the delightful world of Bon Vivant; expect playfulness, creativity, self-compassion, good humor, great snacks, and a killer playlist.
Our Cake Queen
Bon Vivant founder Emily Nejad is known equally for her cutting edge cake designs and for her joyfully rebellious personality and style. Since leaving her music career behind and founding Bon Vivant Cakes studio in 2017, Emily quickly became the go-to cake creative for the Chicago cool crowd. In 2021, Bon Vivant pivoted from taking custom orders to offering a full calendar of weekly cake and treat workshops designed for the cake-curious and pastry pro's alike.
Emily leads a team of creatives both in the kitchen and behind the scenes as Bon Vivant grows, and she looks forward to expanding the studio in 2023 through class additions, amazing new teachers and more!
At Bon Vivant, no six words are sweeter than "I can't believe I made that!"
