Custom cakes! This is a sweet topic for me. What I look for in a customized birthday cake, is finding one that is both delicious and as unique as the recipient. Custom birthday cakes are unique and special because they’re made just for you. Unlike store-bought cakes, custom cakes are designed with the preferences of the birthday girl or boy, in mind. You can choose the flavors, colors, and decorations. This means having the ability to order a cake that matches their favorite things, flavors and colors. The best way to describe a custom cake, is like an edible work of art. Some of my favorite bakers have the ability to turn my ideas into reality, making a cake one-of-a-kind.

What makes custom cakes extra special is the personal touch. Bakers pour their creativity and care into every detail, making the cake taste as amazing as it looks. When you get a custom cake, it’s not just a dessert; it’s a memorable part of your celebration.
Living in the South-West part of Austin, I have a few GO-TO for cakes!
My numero uno is KIKI’s cakes in Bee Cave ( @kikiscakesatx ). Owner Kristin Hall specializes in custom orders large to small. She creates masterpieces from mini cupcakes all the way to towering wedding cakes. Kristin also offers gluten free and vegan options. My families personal favorites are her gluten free red velvet and strawberry cake.

Another delicious option is LOVE & Cookies ( @thecookiesilove ) in Lakeway. They offer delicious cookie cakes in either a traditional or customized style. LOVE & COOKIES has a storefront that offers freshly baked cookies in 14 gourmet flavors year round, frozen cookie dough and of course the ability to order cookie cakes.


And last, but not least…is WELL YEAH CAKES ( @wellyeahcakes) in Dripping Springs. Well Yeah Cakes, is where your cravings are met for any need. Cakes, cookies, CakeBalls & cupcakes. Their funfetti is the obvious choice for ANY birthday!!

So the next time you are looking for the icing on top…make sure to check out one of these local bakeries!
