Heather Pickens is the woman behind Blue Thistle Cakery. She was born and raised in rural Wisconsin, where she began baking and cooking at a young age alongside her mother.

It's been over 15 years since Heather began making cakes, first for friends and family members, and now for a myriad of satisfied clients across the Midwest. Inspired by the beauty and texture of the natural world, Heather is dedicated to providing a fun, stress free planning experience, whether it's your wedding day or a major event.

Heather works closely with clients to design a cake that suits their unique taste, style and personality. Her custom cakes incorporate the ambience of the day her clients dream about.
