SHOREWOOD — A Milwaukee cake artist has competed on the Food Network seven different times and has even won once. Now, she is opening up her first brick and mortar store called Signature Sweets in Shorewood.

Kimberly Hall is known as a cake artist. She makes life-like cake that you can eat. After operating out of a commercial kitchen working pop-up shops, she is finally opening her very own storefront and kitchen at 3801 N. Oakland Ave., in Shorewood.

"I'm super excited to finally open. It's been a really long journey to finally get here, and I’m so excited to offer all the products I made to everyone," Hall said.

It's her molding skill that has gotten her on the Food Network seven different times, baking cakes for the Bucks, and she even appeared on the Steve Harvey show and baked a cake of Steve Harvey's face.

"Anything you can think of: shoes, purses, radios, eye glasses your face - anything you can think of, I can make it," she said.

However, customers can get just about any baked sweet from her like cupcakes, standard cakes, cookies, and so much else.

As for why she decided to open her shop now, of all times: fortunately for her, she said the pandemic hasn’t really hurt her business. Cake orders haven't dropped too much.

“So I know it’s an awful time for businesses, but honestly people love their sweets."

She opened up a pick-up window in the back of her shop so that people don't have to come inside if they don't want to.

She will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Her hottest items right now are her hot cocoa bombs, which come in around 10 different flavors.
