Meet the Not Just Cakes by Annie Team

Posted by

Welcome to our new blog! In this space we plan to share tips, feature cake artists, introduce products, offer a glimpse behind the scenes and maybe even host some fun giveaways. Since this is our first post, I think it’s the perfect time to introduce the team.


Annie, as you probably know, is our fearless founder. She is married to Neil and together they are parents to their very own superhero Riley. Annie leads a busy creative life working as a graphic designer during the day and filling her evenings, once the little one is asleep, with creating confectionery masterpieces or designing new items for our store. She also donates her time and talent to Icing Smiles, a lovely non-profit that helps create happy memories for families with children battling illness by “Baking a Difference.”


Jonas is our tech expert. An engineer by profession and a maker at heart, he has an appreciation for good design and well made products. He expresses his creativity through photography, wood turning, ceramics, and designing and building both practical and novelty items.

Shabina – that’s me! In my day job I’m involved in operations. On the side, I create custom invitations and dabble in photography. My down time is spent doing various crafts & reading. I’m married to Jonas and together we love going on adventures.

Jonas & I met at UC Irvine in 1999 and became fast friends with Annie in 2000 when she & I became roommates. We lived together until a year after Jonas & I were married. The three of us had some great times sharing a place—thanks to some serious rounds of Texas Hold 'Em Poker, our apartment stayed clean and our cars washed regularly!

The three of us run Not Just Cakes by Annie from our homes (we live just 15 minutes apart). As fun as it was, we did not play poker to decide who does what; rather, we each handle a part of the business that reflects what we do for a living.

Now that you know a little bit about us, we would love to get to know you better! Connect with us on the Not Just Cakes by Annie Facebook page or send us an email at shop@notjustcakesbyannie.com.
