Meet Nastassia Johnson of Let Me Eat Cake in Los Angeles

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nastassia Johnson.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Hello! I’m Nastassia Johnson, a native Angeleno, true lover of cake, an enthusiast of pie, a donut fiend – and the sweet tooth behind the blog and Instagram Let Me Eat Cake.

I was born and raised in LA, and I have always loved and been a part of the hospitality and food industry. I’ve had every food industry job you can imagine, from co-founding the first Filipino food truck in L.A. — called the Manila Machine — to running beloved restaurants like Joan’s on Third and Sotto. Every experience has been a tremendous step in working with the best of the best in L.A., and I feel very fortunate to have been a part of each one.

Let Me Eat Cake came about from these food experiences and has expanded into an exploration of the sweeter side of life. I am immersed in LA’s food community and take great pride knowing the ins and outs of the LA food scene.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Working in the food industry and also in social media has its challenges. I can’t say it was ever smooth, but each challenge prepared me more for the road ahead and it’s all been a fun learning process.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Let Me Eat Cake – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I specialize in all things sweet and consider myself a dessert expert. My Instagram and blog of strictly focused on desserts, which is my niche specialty.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I plan to continue on the road I’m on exploring and discovering new sweets and sharing them with my audience. I’ve recently had the opportunity to expand this beyond my Instagram and blog and contribute often to the KTLA Morning News.
