Who is Sweet Cakes by Kathleen LLC?


Hello! My name is Kathleen Christine and I love baking and decorating cakes!  Interestingly, I started my career as a scientist. I earned my PhD in Biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I then went on to continue my training as a postdoctoral fellow at MIT. Despite success in the science world, something happened....the many facets of LIFE! Now, I have been incredibly fortunate to be able to stay at home with my two children, Benjamin and Annelise.

So where did a cake business come from?  While in Boston, I started taking cake decorating classes...and I was hooked!  I continued to improve my skills and found it very fulfilling. Once we moved to the Cleveland area, I decided to jump into making homemade cakes as a business. The name? Well I always called my son sweet cakes for some reason...Sweet Cakes by Kathleen it is!




I pride myself on making cakes and cupcakes from scratch, even my fillings when the season lends itself.  I always test my recipes and only offer it as an option if I approve of its quality and taste. Thanks to my years in science, I am extremely detail oriented and make sure all of my cakes are decorated exquisitely.  I love making toppers that give your cake that extra special touch.  In fact, the best toppers can be saved!!!  Just keep them stored or put them in a curio cabinet as a keepsake!  I saved my daughter's number one and butterflies from her first birthday that I will put on her 16th birthday cake. 


So if you have a design in mind or would like to leave it to me, you will surely have an amazing cake to remember your special event!
