How the CEO of Bakebar Miami bridal showers

How the CEO of Bakebar Miami bridal showers

When the talented CEO of Bakebar Miami has a bridal shower, you pay attention.

Mailyn Lesteiro is our #WCW every day of the year. The solopreneur has been making a name for herself as the go-to dessert provider for any celebration–– even Will Smith graciously chomped on her custom cake and enjoyed it.

On a breezy Saturday afternoon with Perricone's serving as the backdrop for her bridal shower festivities, we joined her for an intimate soirée before her upcoming nuptials. As expected, Bakebar stacked the sweets, proving Mailyn's prowess for food art and her unprecedented ability to wear multiple hats–– event planner, baker, businesswoman and bride.

On the menu: her signature honey and cream cheese naked cake surrounded by an assortment of homemade macaroons, with flavors like honey lavender, lemon, raspberry rose water and guava. 

Apart from the massive sweet tooth, we were left with a much deeper impression from the afternoon, true love. More than the love Mailyn shares with her future husband, but that of the women in her life. We came to witness her next great evolution, and the future looks really good on her.
