Welcome to Kara's Cookies, Cupcakes & More!

I am a home based baker that bakes under the Texas Cottage Food Laws and creates sweet treats almost daily!

I use mostly organic ingredients that are very high quality.  I always bake with ingredients that I would serve my family.  After all, they look forward to any leftovers after each order!

I often make my own Marshmallow Fondant that is very yummy and does not taste like the pre-made fondant that most people have experienced before.

Please browse through my picture galleries and look at the examples of work I have completed.  Every order is completely custom and is made fresh to order.

I am happy to make any flavor cake or frosting that you desire.  I also regularly hand cut cookies if I don't have your shape in the 100's of cookie cutters that I already own.

I look forward to hearing from you and making your next celebration yummy!

Happy New Year 2013!!

It has been an amazing year and I have so much to be thankful for.  The fact that we are living in a tiny Condo and I can barely turn around in my kitchen without running into something is really a blessing!!

All that means is that we have sold our house, we are working on plans for our new home and we have purchased a lot in an amazing neighborhood just outside of Austin.  Austin is a place that I truly love and am proud to call home.  My children are healthy and all are happy.  We have great neighbors that share our "homeless" situation and our kids just love each other.  Sometimes I feel like I live in a frat house, but its all for a good cause and I am happy that my kids are home having fun with friends.

My husband is so truly perfect for me, I can not even explain.  He is patient, kind and loving.  He is so supportive of me and my baking.  He puts up with my crazy ideas and encourages me to update my blog!  He even shows his coworkers my blog in the middle of staff meetings!  : )

Mostly, I have The Lord to thank for my family, friends and many, many blessings.  His one and only son Jesus is all that it takes to have the most blessed life of all.  I am eternally grateful.

To end the year with a New Years Cupcake tower for Belvedere, just seemed fitting.

Belvedere... I Love you.....
