Spilt Milk

Molly Svec


After serving as pastry cook under Chef Dana Cree at Chicago's Blackbird, lead baker at Hoosier Mama Pie Company, and pastry chef at Straight Wharf in Nantucket, Molly Svec decided to pursue her lifelong dream of opening a bakery with her sister Meg. In 2016, Spilt Milk opened in Oak Park to rave reviews. As pastry chef/co-owner of this bustling business, Molly stays grounded by making the time to unwind in nature. One of her favorite activities is hiking through the forest and shoreline near her parents’ home in Three Oaks, Michigan.
