Elfie Weiss
Elfie Weiss
Back in 2005, recently divorced mom Elfie Weiss took a gamble and threw caution to the wind when she branched out and started her own small business. She took a loan out on her home (something most advise against), and bought her first bakery.

Now in its 9th year, Hotcakes has become so successful that Elfie is expanding the 825 sq. ft. location to 2600 sq. ft. and will soon begin baking French bread in-house, add a new coffee program, and reshuffle the bakery to allow for a sit down café experience complete with breakfast and lunch items!

Today, she is not only the winner of a major network show, but her company Hotcakes caters major events including the Grammys and The Emmys! She also has a number of celebrity clients including Weird Al Yankovic, Ron Howard, Madonna, Lindsay Lohan, Justin Timberlake, Quincy Jones, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Anne Heche Barbara Streisand and Tori Spelling to name a few.
