Sara Gonzales
Kitchen Manager/Head Baker

Sara has been baking since a young age but got her professional start in San Francisco while earning her Health Science degree from San Francisco State.  After deciding that she would rather pursue baking over sitting at an office job, she continued to work in pastry in Austin, TX, and now back in her home area of Los Angeles.  She is happy to be back in Southern California, the only proper place to get a burrito and visit the beach year-round, and is very excited to be a part of the CCCW team.


Sean Honey

Sean started working with Charm City Cakes in 2007. He is ecstatic to be living and working in California. He is not yet living the dream, though he has been known to dream.

Tim Martin

Tim was raised an “Army Brat” in Fort Bragg, NC. His life-long passion is film – mainly 80’s Sci-fi and Horror movies. He has been a Hollywood special FX make-up artist for over 12 years working on films like Spiderman, Jurrasic Park 3, Hellboy, and more. Tim recently wrote and directed his first feature film and is still heavily involved in FX.  “Being a part of CCC is a new,                                                                                    challenging and exciting artistic                                                                                          adventure.”
