Hello! My name is Ashley and this is my beautiful family. I am happily married to the love of my life, Dustin. We are extremely blessed to be the proud parents of our son, Michael. Our family has just welcomed the newest boy, Finn.

We are residents of Dade City, FL... home of some of the most exquisite wedding venues in the state of Florida! While my husband is a Dade City native, we have been loving the country lifestyle as a family for 3 years now. 

My family is my WHY in creating the business of my dreams. They are extremely supportive in my passions within this industry. 


Professional History

Hi friends! For those of you who don't know me, I would like to take a moment to tell you a little bit about my goofy self and how I got into this amazing industry! My love of cake first began when I saw the creative freedom that decorating gave me. I have ALWAYS been a huge lover of all things art! As a kid, I used to paint and sketch anything and everything! I even started a small Etsy business selling custom painted canvas art. 

I officially kicked off my bakery career in retail working my way through an apprenticeship to learn the ins and outs of cake decor! After years within a retail setting, I gained a clientele that urged me to grow my business into a brand of my own. Thus, The Rustic Bliss Cakery was born in March 2020!

Working primarily with cake decor and little baking experience, I knew that I needed a cake that not only looked beautiful but TASTED beautiful! I spent countless baking hours learning new techniques, recipes, tips, and tricks. This led me to create a variety of homemade cake flavors, fillings, and infused icings. And let me tell you, they DO NOT disappoint!
