She's the easy going, fun loving spirit that always smells like vanilla. Chef Kimberly "Kimihou" Bryant is a newcomer to
Atlanta's booming cake artist scene. As a native of Atlanta, Chef Kimihou prides herself in rue to her southern roots with
some added flair, a true Southern Belle.
Three years ago, Chef Kimberly’s business, then known as Custom Event Cakes, only included simple, southern pound
cakes and chocolate chip desserts. After months of prayer and meditation, Chef Kimberly changed her company's name
to Adonai Desserts Atlanta. Adonai is Hebrew for Lord, as He is the leader of her life and her business.
Kimberly graduated with honors from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute in 2013 and quickly gained notoriety around the
Atlanta metro area, serving celebrities, local charities, and a host of wonderful customers.
The name change to Adonai Desserts Atlanta quickly sparked dozens of new opportunities for Kimberly. She remembers
the day she was tagged on Facebook about doing a cake for some local celebrities. It wasn't until later that afternoon
when she realized the cake would be for two of her celebrity crushes from her teenage years: Q Parker of R&B group,
112, and RL of R&B group Next. Chef Kimberly kept the details of the experience within her small group of friends, of
whom shared just as much excitement as she did. Upon delivering the cake, she was introduced to both gentlemen who
in turn, expressed their gratitude and immediately requested pictures with Kimberly. One Instagram post later, Chef
Kimberly became Chef Kimihou.
Following the life-sized turn table cake for Q Parker and RL, Chef Kimihou designed cakes more celebrities including
Harry Douglas of the NFL Tennessee Titans; Angel McCoughtry of the WNBA Atlanta Dream; philanthropist Warrick
Dunn, retired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; Nikki Gilbert of Brownston/R&B Divas; Kenya Moore of Real Housewives
of Atlanta and Celebrity Apprentice; R&B icons Brian McKnight and Avery Sunshine; and gospel singers William Murphy
and Tasha Cobbs.
Chef Kimihou has a passion for baking and loves to make a client’s vision come to life through cake. When asked what
her favorite part of her job is, she simply replies, “everything.” From helping a bride find herself during the process of
planning her wedding, to surprise birthday parties and colorful birthday cakes for babies, every cake is an experience for
Chef Kimihou. She once said, “every order is my opportunity to create a memorable experience during a memorable
occasion for someone else. I live for those moments and truly love artful expressions through desserts.”
