Steve Himelfarb

Profile:
Recording engineer who is now a baker known as the "Cake Man."

He grew up in Washington, D.C., and always wanted to be in the music business. As a young man, he moved to Los Angeles where he broke into the industry. Learning the business and honing his recording engineering skills, he landed a job at Capitol Records, where he would score engineering credits on platinum records working with such musicians as Bob Seger and Pat Benatar, among others. He eventually moved to Louisiana, doing Grammy-nominated work with such artists as Buckwheat Zydeco and Beausoleil.

After about 15 years in the music business, he realized he didn't want to sit in a studio for the rest of his life. He had always enjoyed cooking and baking, and friends encouraged him to pursue that. The "Cake Man" was born. Developing a strong customer base from the door-to-door sales, he closed his small recording studio and opened the New Orleans Cake Cafe & Bakery on Exchange Alley in the French Quarter.
