Adrian Jimenez, Owner
Creative foodie, lover of animals, dark comedy, Star Wars & fancy cheese
Hi all, I’m Adrian and I am the creative and head Pastry Chef behind Blue Aces. I am a Salinas Valley Native with a deep love for my community and the arts. With my husband Juan, and our two boys, we opened Blue Aces in Spring of 2015.
I absolutely love the culinary arts; my favorite part... developing unique and unconventional flavor profiles and pairings, and of course decorating! I am best known for my beautifully decorated cookies and hand lettering design elements as well as my creative approach to desserts. When I’m not baking I’m working on my calligraphy, spending time outdoors, writing and playing in my crystals.
I'm proud to call Salinas my home and it fills my heart to be able to serve our neighbors and friends!
Cynthia Shuttleworth, Shift Leader
Lover of gaming, anime and all things radical
Miss Cynthia is our gamer girl who keeps us up to date on all things pop-culture, dark humor and underground awesomeness. She has a freakish palette for spicy foods and a soft spot for all the pups that visit the shop. She was born and raised right here in Salinas, California and is proud to call this place home.
Cynthia leads the production of all our amazing French Macarons you find in our shop as well as assisting in planning all the fun holiday offerings.
She loves being part of the Blue Aces family because creating these amazing desserts and seeing that enjoyment on peoples faces when they eat our baked goods brings her a lot of joy... and having her here with us brings us a lot of joy!
