I am Nea, and along with my husband Pat, we own Whisk & Arrow in Appleton, Wisconsin. Thank you for landing on this page!

I am originally from southern Brazil but have been in the States for 17 years now. I attended the International Culinary Center, the former French Culinary Institute, for Pastry Arts. Pat, a Wisconsin native, is a Stout graduate and besides being our numbers guy/handyman, he’s also a full time Project Director for CrMeyer, in Oshkosh. We are the proud parents of a spunky 6 year old, Sophia.

After having Sophia and being a stay at home mom for a year I started going crazy. I had to get back to baking. In 2017 we found a location, renovated and boom. The rest is history. These days our team is 30 strong and ever growing.

We use high quality ingredients and almost everything is made from scratch in small batches. I say almost because we do buy our croissant, Danish and puff doughs, but we stuff them ourselves for you and they are made with 100% butter. We can also tell you every single ingredient that’s in our recipes, we can pronounce them all. We want you to know what you are eating and feeding your loved ones. We use a lot of organic products and do our best to embrace local produce and exploit what the seasons have to offer us in Wisconsin.

My favorite cake here is chocolate and my favorite macaron is raspberry chocolate.

Whisk & Arrow is here to make people happy. As simple as that. There’s nothing more rewarding to us than watching smiles unfold after a bite of something delicious. A sweet treat can make somebody’s day and we love being able to facilitate that.

Thanks for letting us create treats for you!
