Award-winning pastry chefs Michael Jones and Bart Utz first met when both were enrolled in South Seattle Community College taking  pastry and specialty baking courses.  However, they didn't strike up a friendship until much later.   They baked and decorated their first gorgeous wedding cake as Crème de la Crème in 1997 and haven't stopped baking and decorating. They have been some of Seattle's most popular cakes decorators since. While the business was becoming established,  both worked day jobs at well-known Seattle establishments such as the Washington Athletic Club, where Michael served as Executive Pastry Chef off and on for 16 years. Bart's extensive resume includes several bakeries, hotels and Private clubs.
