Time to get personal – I started baking cakes during the Summer of 2015 for my own bridal shower party and for close friends and family. I immediately stopped because I kept thinking – “who will eat all of this cake if I just make it for fun?” Fast forward to February of 2016, I was on Pinterest and a cake caught my eye. I bought all of the ingredients for it and made this almond cake for my 5 year old niece (who didn’t even like the taste ha!) I continued looking on Pinterest for more cake ideas and that’s when I got hooked. At that time, I was working full-time doing social media for a tech company in Provo and literally 2 weeks after I decided that I wanted to get back into baking cakes, a TON of people got laid off… including ME! I couldn’t believe it. I had never been unemployed before and I was freaking out. Steven (my husband) and I were fine financially but my life was always go-go-go and everything was routine for me. He told me to calm down and just relax because I’ve been working since I was 16 years old. If you know me – I can’t sit still….EVER. That’s when a lightbulb came on and I thought “I’m going to bake cakes and sell them!” I made an Instagram account dedicated to my cakes and desserts – @lizzies_bakery and it went uphill from there! A couple weeks after starting @lizzies_bakery account, I had about 6-8 cake orders a week! That’s when I knew Lizzie’s Bakery could be something big.
After moving from Provo and living in Carlsbad and the UK all Summer – Lizzie’s Bakery is finally settled and ready to bake in sunny Los Angeles, California! I make all of my cakes with lots of love and attention to detail. Please feel free to contact me for any cake or dessert orders – I would love to make a perfect, custom cake for you or a loved one!
