We had the good fortune of connecting with Anna Castellanos Vegan Cake Designer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Anna Castellanos, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
I do! My favorite quote from Winston Churchill is “success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm”. What it means to me is, with much consistency in business and does not work out from time to time, you need to keep going with much confidence as when you first started.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Creating cakes especially that are vegan is such a thrill for me. Why? Because anyone who feels that plant based cakes are not flavorful are misinformed. I have practiced and practiced to perfect what my cakes are today, easy? no. But we see our cakes as colorful, fashionable and cruelty free than other cakes you see out there. That is what makes Ámame Desserts so different from others, we make cakes that are good for the soul and make them for anyone who wants to try out Vegan cakes.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them to places like coffee shops because most of my friends are coffee lovers like me so I would take them to local shops such like Cafe Moto, Birdrock Cafe, Dark Horse etc. What I like most about my city is that there is always choices and things to do, it’s never boring. I like going to Downtown like Little Italy or head out o Hillcrest for some fun, Balboa Park for some walks and hang outs. San Diego is never boring and when friends come along, there’s always fun things to do here.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
This shoutout goes to my family, boyfriend, friends and every customer who loves and supports Ámame Desserts. All of you have made Ámame Desserts so wonderful and I couldn’t have asked for more better people in my life.
