Let's butter you up!


I’m Ashley Holt - I love working in-front of and behind the camera as a Cake Artist, Pastry Chef, Culinary Producer and Food Stylist. Welcome to Sugar Monster—my quirky world of cake artistry, Bake Squad buddies, fun times and good vibes. 

Originally a Georgia peach, I've now found my home in Connecticut while my work takes me across the world. I've got a passion for exploring every slice of life, in and out of the kitchen.

After trading the hot lights of fashion for the radiating heat of the oven— I took the grand prize in the TLC series Cake Boss: Next Great Baker. Winning sure stoked my appetite, leading to victories on Food Network's Chopped, The New York Cake Show, and strong finishes on Food Network's Dessert Games and FYI's Cake Fest. Perhaps you stumbled upon me through one of these wins, or maybe it was on Netflix's Bake Squad – however you found your way here, I'm thrilled to have you!

My creations have graced television screens, magazine spreads, and digital platforms, and I've had the pleasure of collaborating with an array of esteemed clients, from A-list celebs to top-notch corporations and fashion icons. We're known for delivering top-tier quality in everything we do.

Even though I've been in the business for 15 years, I still feel like I'm just scratching the surface. My goal is to spread buttercream, sprinkles, and a whole lot of love in equal measures.

Thank you for being part of this amazing journey with me.
