Lisa He is the force behind Borderlands Bakery. She discovered baking in college and used it as a source of stress relief. Her cookie adventures began with drop cookies, shortbread and French Macarons. Lisa began decorating sugar cookies first in 2011, at first for Breast Cancer Awareness bake sale at work, and she was hooked. Over the years, she honed her craft with endless hours of practice, lots of YouTube (thank you, SweetAmbs!) and slowly developed her skills and audience. In 2014, she started working on cookie orders for friends/family, and eventually ended up obtaining her Cottage Food license, which allowed her to work out of her home kitchen and conduct limited sales to clients local to the Sacramento area. She has been a part of many celebrations and life events, and love how much joy custom cookies bring to people’s lives. In 2018, Lisa was featured in S1E1 of Netflix’s Sugar Rush, and was also the winner of Food Network’s Christmas Cookie Challenge. Many media outlets have picked up on the Borderlands Bakery journey, include Style Magazine, Good Day Sacramento, Fox40, ABC10, Sacramento Bee, and many others! Lisa hopes to continue growing Borderlands Bakery, making it a resource for hobby and small-business-cookie and dessert lovers local to the Sacramento area and across the globe.
