Welcome to Bklyn Bakes! I'm Randi, your hostess and baker! I've been baking since I could stand, and I was trained by the master chef herself, my mamaw (that's grandmother for those of you who grew up above the Mason Dixon Line). I figured it was time to spread the love around this big city!
Here's our current menu. I'm open to meeting your various baking needs, though, so feel free to email me at email@example.com and tell me what you're thinking!

Custom Bakes I'd be happy to speak to you if you have a different baked good in mind. I'm polishing my skills as a decorator and love trying to mimic the work of the Ace of Cakes guys, to the best of my ability.
I promise I'll post some pictures of my work soon!

When your mom's hobby is baking...
This is what your birthday party looks like.
I'm 100% proud of how my banana cake and chocolate cream cheese icing tasted. And I'm 95% proud of how the monkey cupcakes look. I'll admit, though, that I'm only about 60% happy with how the cake looks. Rolled fondant takes some getting used to. Plus, the cake was so ginormous and moist (if I do say so myself), that it started to fall apart before decorating, so some last-minute surgery was needed before decorating even began.
Anyhow, we had a wonderful 2nd birthday celebration for my darling Stella, and I have a new cake to add to my ever-expanding menu.
