CAKE&WHISKEY magazine ~ The Sweet & Spirited World of Business. Launching Print and Digital formats in the Spring of 2013

How CAKE&WHISKEY Makes a Difference

CAKE&WHISKEY is a quarterly magazine devoted to women in all stages of their business journey.   CAKE&WHISKEY aspires to motivate and spark women to dream bigger, reach higher, and achieve greater things.  For the modern woman, successful navigation of today’s business landscape requires mastering the fine art of cake and whiskey. When a woman balances strength and spirit with a passion to share in life’s sweet indulgences, she can achieve great success in working to fulfill her dreams and live a balanced, fulfilling life.

CAKE&WHISKEY will provide current, engaging, provocative and sophisticated perspectives into the modern business world with in-depth interviews conducted over a slice of cake and glass of whiskey, articles written for diverse interests, stunning photography and creative design. We seek to become the leading business magazine for today's woman and a trusted partner for organizations and companies that promote female participation, growth and leadership in business.

Whether a recent college graduate looking for her first job, a corporate executive climbing the ladder or an entrepreneur looking to start or expand a small business, we believe that all women have a valuable story to share and we want to share these stories with readers.

Why you should help fund CAKE&WHISKEY magazine

CAKE&WHISKEY started as a business women’s hobnob group founded by Megan Smith with the desire to introduce smart business women to each other over delicious cake, strong whiskey drinks  with a bit of shop talk in between. Megan couldn’t let the concept of CAKE&WHISKEY stop there. With her work as a freelance writer for multiple publications and her ability to tap into the experience of mentors and editors, the idea for a business women’s magazine was brewing. Within weeks, she was taking two of her most respected business gals out to share the dream. They caught the vision…and came on board….CAKE&WHISKEY magazine was born. 

Over the past months, we have created what we know to be a relatable, beautiful, thoughtful magazine for business women around the globe. We have had the privilege of connecting with some of the best women in their respective industries to provide engaging and inspiring content within the pages of CAKE&WHISKEY magazine. With the availability of both print and digital publications, CAKE&WHISKEY will reach women around the globe, either on the go at a busy subway terminal or at the end of the day curled up with a cup of tea and a quilt.
