Who is Whippy Cake? That would be me, Becki, a professional stylist turned self-confidence promoter. I love a beauty tutorial as much as the next girl, but I also believe in a world where people put more value on who you are on the inside than what you look like on the outside.
If pixie tutorials and confidence lessons aren’t enough to kick start your journey to mega achievement, I’ve still got you covered. After developing my own business for 7+ years and working on dream projects that still have me pinching myself, I've turned my attention to you, the up-and-coming #GirlBoss who just might need a little pep talk from someone who has been there, tried that. Never one to shy away from a crowd, I have also taken my love for teaching on the road, speaking to audiences big and small, from LA to NYC.
