I am a cottage home baker registered and licensed with Arizona Health Department under the Arizona Home Baked Goods Program.

I am not a commercial baker and do not have a store front. Her Little Cakery LLC is licensed and insured.

Party cakes are recommended to be booked 4-8 weeks in advance however you can always reach out to check availability sooner! 

Do you offer faux cakes?

Yes! I do offer faux cakes to add height to your cake if you do not need the actual servings. 

Please be aware faux cakes do not lower the price of the cake by much. The cost of the dummies are usually about the same as ingredients and the dummies are covered in the same buttercream and design requiring the same amount of time/effort. I do offer acrylic spacers & risers for rental if you would like additional creative ways to add cake height.
