BUFFALO, NY ( WKBW / release ) Hollywood’s pastry chef and baker to the stars may have a Los Angeles address, but her
heart remains in Western New York.

A native of Buffalo, N.Y. (and a graduate of Kenmore East High School and Niagara University), Diana Sproveri has made waves in
Los Angeles with her baked goods with a unique Buffalo flair.

Diana Sproveri’s designer bake shop treats have been seen all over Hollywood, including at the FOX Critics Choice Awards, American Idol, The Grammys, The Emmys and The Academy Awards.

Privately, Sproveri has a long list of Hollywood clients including David
Schwimmer (“Friends”), Zachary Levi (“Chuck”, “Tangled”) and Jerry Bruckheimer Films along with numerous entertainment outlets in Los Angeles.

A regular contributor to Everyday With Rachael Ray, Sproveri’s recipes and entertaining tips are always a hit. She is presently expanding her personal website and blog, and is writing a book and developing a television show to offer others recipes and techniques
to use at home.

Sproveri’s most famous accomplishment has been the creation of Lollibakes®, the first retail gourmet cake pop in Los Angeles. Featured in Food Network Magazine, People Magazine and Martha Stewart Weddings, Lollibakes® recently announced national
shipping for the holidays.

Made from scratch using all-natural ingredients, Sproveri has
bested the competition in both taste and design. With unique flavors such as Toffee Nut Crunch, Sugar Cookie and Chocolate Mint, Lollibakes® have become a cake pop category killer in Los Angeles, with the nation not far behind.

In addition to creating new and innovative desserts, Sproveri also focuses on charitable involvement with her business. This holiday season, Sproveri is teaming up with Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, giving a portion of the proceeds from all Lollibakes® holiday
boxes to The Steadfast Foundation which helps families affected by childhood cancer.

In 2010, Miller was the recipient of the 2010 NHL Foundation Player’s Award honoring an NHL player who stars in improving his community. Miller started The Steadfast Foundation in 2006 to help support his cousin Matt who had been diagnosed with leukemia.

This year, The Steadfast Foundation held its annual Catwalk for Charity gala on December 4th at the Town Ballroom in Buffalo.
