"Food can be expressive and therefore food can be art."

You should absolutely play with your food. 

The power of the perfect bite relies on more than just sugar, salt, heat, or acid - we believe in cultivating an emotional connection. Comfort food doesn't have to be your mom's recipe from 50 years ago (even though one of ours totally is). Allow yourself to reminisce on an experience or emotion that a proper morsel can bring you back to.


Bryce Cherven

Chef + Owner

Pastry Unicorn is operated by Bryce Cherven in Mesa, Arizona.

Bryce was a home-baker from her early teens until graduating Culinary school in 2016, after which she moved into professional kitchens in the likes of coffee shops, restaurants, and catering. She moved to Arizona in 2019 to escape the snowy winters of Colorado and be close to family.

Owning her own business has been a dream as long as she has been baking, and she hopes to transition her business into a dessert food truck in the not-too-distant future.

Okay, but why a Unicorn?

" 'No' was the best thing that ever happened to me."

"In 2016 I was tasked with creating a card I could give to anyone in my professional field. The caveat was that we couldn’t refer to ourselves as chefs. I knew immediately I wanted to offer something more interesting than “culinarian”. My instructor took one look at the title on my card and said, “No one will hire you with that name.”
I was lined up with a job before I received my diploma."

And so, Pastry Unicorn was born.
