Hi, I'm Ryan! It's nice to meet you.

I am first and foremost a follower of Christ, and base the way I operate Honey & Salt on my faith: everything I do is for the glory of God. I am married to a wonderful man named Rob and we have three young girls together: Charlotte, Lily-James, and Owen (I'm sure if you follow me on Instagram you've seen their shenanigans pop up on my stories).

My passion has always been for cake; this is a business I have been dreaming of and praying about for years.

I left UNM after a year to move cross-country to attend the world-renowned pastry arts program at L'Academie de Cuisine in Maryland. While there I trained under incredible French chefs and worked at one of Maryland's most popular cake shops, SugarBaker's. I have over ten years of professional experience working in the cake industry, including helping to open Smallcakes here in Albuquerque.

I've spent a lot of time making cakes that people just pick from a book and it is what propelled me to start a cakery where the cake you order from me is a reflection of who you are, designed especially for you, not chosen out of a book or off of a Pinterest page (although I love to see what designs you want to incorporate into your cake.) The cakes that I craft for you are carefully planned from the first correspondence until the final detail that is placed on your cake. I am constantly learning new techniques to use on my cakes through online courses, and I find inspiration everywhere and love to apply it to my designs. 

In my spare time, I'm a bit of an introvert, who reads a lot of books and knows more about serial killers than most people. I love to watch Harry Potter with Charlotte, have my makeup done by Lily, and read books to Owen. I'm a bit obsessed with Great British Bake Off and Schitt's Creek and love to beat my husband in every Scrabble game we play.
