Art & Life with Cassie Kalinski

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cassie Kalinski.

Cassie, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
Floured is a cottage bakery located in Mesa, AZ specializing in cupcakes, custom event cakes, and desserts of all kinds! My sister Kristen and I began Floured in 2013 as a hobby and to make custom cupcakes for our friends and family for all of their events. It grew from there as we began to have more demand for our treats! We are constantly learning and growing with our skills, artistry, and our business. As we continue on our journey, we have each found specialties in our decorating that help to balance the other. We are constantly trying to learn and make each other and ourselves better!

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
Floured specializes in cupcakes and cakes, but we love treats and desserts of all kinds including cake pops, cookies, brownies, scones and more. We are committed to using ingredients of the highest quality and offer all the classic flavors such as chocolate and vanilla, as well as some interesting and unique combinations for the more adventurous palate! We love helping our customers celebrate the special events in their lives with fun, delicious, and custom desserts.

What responsibility, if any, do you think artists have to use their art to help alleviate problems faced by others? Has your art been affected by issues you’ve concerned about?
I think the role of artists has changed. For the most part, we choose not to use our voice to add to conversations that can be polarizing or hot button, but instead, we choose to use our work to bring joy and maybe a brief respite from what else is going on in the world.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
Follow us on social media to see what new things we are creating and check our website for updates when we will be having pop-ups or be at a market. You can also support us by visiting us at a market, ordering treats for your events (bonus points if you write a review), or by liking, commenting and sharing our social media posts and engaging with us that way!
