Making beautiful cakes has been a part of my families history for a very long time. My great grandmother and grandmother made cakes for social gatherings, their church and their children. My mother spent most of her days, as I do, baking happily in the kitchen creating all types of home cooked goodies with love. We would come home after school or other functions to sweet or savory smells from the kitchen, we couldn't wait to dig in! My grandmother and mother were traditional bakers and decorators and their sweets delighted young and old.

Facebook is also a great way to send your inquiries and is as simple as clicking the Facebook symbol to reach me.
I am SO excited that fall is finally here.... I just love the cooler weather, the way the trees change to colors of fire and celebrating my favorite holiday since I was a little kid...HALLOWEEN!!!
I am currently booked out for the remainder of the year, please ask to be put on my cancellation list, sometimes spots open up at the last second which I know can make it difficult to plan things out on your end. With this years lifting of Covid related regulations, couples have been trying to get their weddings back on schedule. These huge events are STILL in full swing and likely to continue past their normal spiking time. Because they keep me so busy they have created a bit of a lagging response time to customer inquiries so please be patient with me, I do EVERYTHING on my own and I have to juggle priorities as well as family. Please note..
With the AWFUL rise in both food, gas and bakery supplies I have had to raise my prices. I tried to keep from doing this as long as possible but now i'm "shooting myself in the foot" waiting for so long. The price of specific things is absolutely shocking and I use coupons, seasonal sales and my own discounts as much as I can to get as much savings as I can. I'm pretty darn good with coupons but they are only making a slight dent in supply costs for my customers.
I am currently NOT taking any more new orders for 2023 unless you are a prospective client of Copper Gables Barn venue.. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please reach out to Gottie's Sweets in Olympia or Celebrity Cakes in Tacoma to fulfill your orders in my absence.
