A message from our CEO, Angie Hester Cook

Welcome to CAKE!

It goes without saying that at Hester & Cook we love setting a beautiful table, but it is so much more than that. If I try to capture the genesis of what inspired Hester & Cook, I find myself thinking of lovely meals spent with those I hold dear and special moments that have been created around the table. As a child, the ritual of gathering with my family at the end of every day to share a meal was very special to me. I would help my mother set the table, fill the glasses and help her serve dinner – many sweet memories live there. For years we have been discussing launching this blog. Creating a space where we can share things with you is very important to us and we are thrilled that it is now a reality!

Why, you ask, did we choose the name CAKE for our new blog? First of all, who doesn’t love cake?! Some of you know, it was actually one of our very first brands. Many still refer to us as “Cake”, which we secretly love. And following our core values, we believe there is always a moment to celebrate…and what is a celebration without a little cake?

CAKE is about attainable beauty. Whether you are bringing in pizza for a casual dinner, hosting a special celebration, or sending a handwritten sentiment to someone you love, Hester & Cook is all about making those occasions special, memorable and simple for everyone. That is exactly what we hope to share here on our blog. CAKE is a space for table inspiration, DIY’s, celebration tips, artist spotlights and so much more. 

Welcome to our table. Pull up a chair and join us!
