Bake Bar was a long time dream for founder Mailyn Lesteiro. As a young girl she spent most of her time in the kitchen with her mother where she gained her love for all things culinary. Upon graduating high school, she attended The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, where she learned from some of the most experienced culinary minds in South Florida. During her time at The Art Institute she excelled in both the savory and sweet areas of the culinary world. However, she always knew in her heart that she was meant to be a pastry chef.  Upon graduating top of her class, Mailyn immediately hit the ground running and began to work at the Loews Miami Beach as a pastry chef. She was not only able to cater large conventions but she was also able to take part on the world famous South Beach Food and Wine Festival for multiple years and was able to work alongside various food personalities in the industry. Although she had a firm grasp on the pastry world, Mailyn knew that in order to realize her dreams of opening Bake Bar, she would also need to have a firm grasp on the business world. Thus, prompting her to continue her education at Florida International University where she graduated cum laude with a degree in Hospitality Management. After graduating, Mailyn immediately opened Bake Bar because she wanted to share that love for all things culinary that she gained as a child, but now with expertise that she had gained though out the years. Ultimately, Mailyn and everyone at Bake Bar, make every cake, cupcake, and sweet treat with the same detail and care they would use for their own family.
