Cakes By Babbs Bring Back Memories Of Times Past

By S. Mathur

"We are a husband and wife baking duo that together has over 35 years of experience in the kitchen, both savory and sweet," they said. "Cooking is a passion that we have always shared and are excited to be able to share that passion with everyone we meet. We love being able to create different sweets that bring smiles to everyone's face."

Barbara is the pastry chef, baker, cake decorator and sweet lady. She's the person customers talk to when designing the perfect cake for any occasion. The couple are proud of their ability to make any sweets from scratch, to order.

"One of the things that separates us is our desire to custom create what our costumers are looking for; be it design or flavor," they said. "Our favorite thing is for a costumer to come to us with a flavor desired and for us to be able to make that happen. This past year we even had a bride ask for a Maple Bacon cupcake and we were able to create it and it has become one of our new favorite flavors."

Customers soon learn to get their cakes and cupcakes from the kitchen rather than the convenience store. These are decadent and delicate at the same time.

"We create handcrafted homemade sweets, that will bring back memories of times past," the Smiths said. "Our mission is that every time you take a bite our sweets it reminds you of something you grew up having. Everything we make is baked fresh and done to order just for you; just like your grandmother would do. All of our sweets are made with love."

While offering regular cake flavors like dark chocolate, vanilla and marble, Cakes by Babbs also has some signature flavors. These include strawberry lemonade, whites chocolate raspberry, carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and chocolate caramel. Signature cupcake flavors include almond joy, tiramisu, and a cup of tea, made with Earl Grey.

It's not all just cakes and cupcakes, though, and the kitchen is known for its cookies too. The decorated sugar cookies are bestsellers, and can be matched to the theme of any event. A cookie of the month club provides a dozen hand decorated sugar cookies, with a different theme each month, packed in a window box. Wedding cakes are a specialty but must be booked at least four weeks in advance. Clients love the creative treats made by local and caring people.
