Meet your baking bestie, Shani!

Shani Whisonant

Chief Butter Ambassador

Hi! I'm Shani Whisonant, and I'm the Chief Butter Ambassador at Begin with Butter, and a 5-star cottage bakery owner. I'm a self-taught baker and I've worked for years to achieve my own baking confidence and consistency. I created the blog Begin with Butter in 2021 to help people with their biggest baking challenges. I opened the Begin with Butter Home Baking Academy to help you bust through all of your baking barriers so that you can be confident in the kitchen. My greatest joy is teaching others and I can't wait to bake with you!

Spoiler Alert: They Love it Here. And We Love Having Them Here!

“This Masterclass was absolutely amazing! It's perfect for all levels, but I'm going to share my experience as a new baker. For years I wanted to learn how to bake from scratch. It was such an intimidating process, until I met Shani of Begin with Butter. Her expertise, passion, and gift for teaching and baking make learning so much fun and inviting...I look forward to learning more baking techniques from BwB! Thank you again!”


“Shani's classes always inspire you to take your baking to the next level. I never leave without learning a new technique or tip that is helpful. She takes her time to thoroughly explain any technique and answer any questions that you may have.”


“Shani has a very clear way of explaining and teaching. It is refreshing. She takes her time to not only explain but to demonstrate.”


“Shani changed my life with her course. I am as confident during baking as I have always been while cooking...you gave me the foundation I needed to become this free spirit home chef recipe developer that I love being.”


“This class was just what I needed & it was such a treat! It has awakened the sleeping baker inside of me once again. Shani's style of teaching is so easy to follow...it's really exciting to put it all together.”


“I’ve had a natural talent for baking for years. But I wanted to solidify my practice and hone my skills to potentially sell my cakes. The tips and tricks were amazing. I learned so much and I look forward to no longer having any mishaps because of the information that was provided. Now, if I could just learn packaging tips (do you use a cake board to package a Bundt cake?) and how to price my cakes? Then ilI’ll be well on my way. Thanks again Shani! Looking forward to see who was selected to attend a free class before the end of the year.”
