Chef/Owner 

Cakes by Kasarda was the life-long dream of Tammy Kasarda-Pilch who hails from Liverpool, NY and is a 03' graduate of Johnson and Wales University at the former Charleston, SC campus. 


Tammy has been perfecting her baking and pastry  skills for more than 20 years, which afforded her the opportunity of being a member of the opening pastry team at the Sanctuary hotel on Kiawah Island Resort and commanding the kitchen at Kaminsky's dessert cafe here in Charleston

    

Her work is featured in many local and national publications such as Charleston Wedding Magazine and the Knot. Tammy earned the Knot's Best of Weddings Hall of Fame in 2014 and has achieved back-to-back honors from the Weddingwire.com's Couples' Choice Awards.  In 2011, she was featured on the Cooking Channel's "Road Trip with Chef G. Garvin"  featuring several notable culinary destinations within the Lowcountry. 


Now, Tammy brings her passion for baking and the pastry arts to you!

Thank you for the unbelievable job you did with Angela's wedding cake. It was awesome. I had many comments about how beautiful and unique the cake was and it tasted excellent. Several guests told me personally, that it was the best wedding cake they had ever eaten. - Hubert Y.
