Candace worked in investment banking and then at an internet startup before shifting gears to follow her passion and attend pastry school. In 2005, she opened the doors to Sprinkles, the world’s first cupcake bakery. Despite the early naysayers, her tiny bakery in Beverly Hills disrupted the legacy bakery industry and ignited a worldwide cupcake phenomenon. In 2012 Sprinkles introduced its Cupcake ATM, a cutting edge contactless cupcake delivery system. Today, Sprinkles has sold over 200 million cupcakes and has over 20 stores, 30 Cupcake ATMs and 1000 employees.
In 2017 Candace co-founded Pizzana, a fast growing chain of award winning Neo-Neapolitan pizzerias, leading the third wave of pizza in the US. Pizzana cemented Los Angeles as a pizza destination and revolutionized pizza takeout with its innovative heat and slice at-home method. Pizzana also ships its frozen pizza nationwide. In 2021 Candace co-created and executive produced Best in Dough, a Hulu show starring Pizzana Executive Chef Daniele Uditi.
Through CN2 Ventures, a family office and venture studio, Candace has backed a diverse portfolio of startups in the specialty food, retail, health, wellness, and early childhood spaces with a focus on female and underrepresented founders.
Candace is also a beloved global baking personality. On the small screen she starred in (and executive produced) Netflix’s Sugar Rush and Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. She is also the author of NYT bestselling cookbook, The Sprinkles Baking Book. Her upcoming new book, Sweet Success: A Simple Recipe to Turn Your Passion Into Profit[Harper Collins Leadership, November 2022], is available for pre-order.
