About this project

We would like to thank everyone for helping us reach our original goal in such a short period of time! (& for helping us reach out stretch goal of $5,000! This means everyone who pledged $25 or more gets an extra small bag of CakeCrisps!! Woohoo!) Our next stretch goal is $10,000 and we'll be giving everyone who pledges $25+ an extra small dip (4 oz) and everyone who pledges $100+ an extra large dip (8oz)!

CakeCrisps are a new way to enjoy an old favorite! We bake our CakeCrisps from scratch with recipes we learned from our mom.

Our passion for cake began at a young age when we would help our mother bake cakes for everything from birthdays to holidays to family dinners. We learned to bake homemade cakes from our mom and to this day, we bake only from scratch.

CakeCrisps is a dessert we created when we were craving cake but didn't want to go through the hassle of making a whole cake which we would then have to fill, frost, cut, and serve. We wanted something simpler; something we could snack on without the need for all the extras an actual cake requires. CakeCrisps are shaped like chips for an easy snacking experience but they pack the full flavor of a bite of cake!

We have also created a range of dips to go along with your CakeCrisps. Currently, we offer homemade dulce de leche, guava, and pineapple dips.

With your help we would like to move into a commercial kitchen to expand our business and eventually build a larger kitchen here in the United States to produce CakeCrisps and allow us to share our creation with even more people!

We hope that you will donate to our project and help us make CakeCrisps the world's next big snack item!

What we need the funding for: 

  • Renting a commercial kitchen space in our area
  • Certifications
  • Ingredients (all of our products are made from scratch!)
  • Supplies (Containers, kitchen utensils)
  • Creating a website

We're ready to put in the work to make CakeCrisps a successful endeavor but we need your help to make it happen!

Thank you!

Risks and challenges

We believe that starting small and staying within our means will allow us to solidly grow while avoiding many of the risks that opening a storefront or rushing into expansion would bring. We believe that our passion for our product is what will allow us to overcome obstacles and keep moving forward.

The one risk we felt we had with the project was our ability to ship in the summer which is why we will be shipping out rewards in November instead! We look forward to delivering delicious crisps & dips to our backers!
