After 5 years of growing my business as a cake artistic, Ron and I decided it was time to take the leap and open a storefront.  Because of this, we have been able add other confections to the menu.  We are now offering daily cakes, cupcakes, cookies, berry bars, tarts, & brownies.  We are in the process of creating a warm and inviting space for customers to come in and buy their fresh homemade confections.  This change is necessary to grow the business and we hope you will consider supporting our cause.

Marble Textured Cake with Sugar Flowers

Lydia's Cakes & Confections has become known as one of the premiere cake artists in the Greater Maple Valley area and beyond.   Since becoming a business in 2014, we have been donating to big and small causes while doing it all on our own.  We look forward to continue donating as well as begin to grow a team to help with all of our creations.  We can't wait to be able to serve more people in the near future, but we need YOUR help.

That's where YOU come in!

Triple Berry Bars!

My family business would like to try and pull this off with as little debt as possible and would really appreciate your support in helping us raise money to off-set this opening cost.

We're asking you to partner with us by taking advantage of some of these offers and joining our effort to open our storefront and give Lydia's Cakes & Confections the ability to begin serving you and all our future friends.

Sugar Anenome

We are raising money to be able to create that warm and inviting entry for you to come in for your fresh confections.  Your help will allow us to present Lydia's Cakes & Confections to the community and take it to new heights!

Me with the Stanley Cup!.....Nope, That's a Cake I created!!!!

Risks and challenges

Anytime a construction project begins, there are unforeseen challenges that may occur. I am working with reputable contractors who we are confident will be able to work through the entire process from permit approvals to ribbon cutting.
We are also expanding our menu options to minimize the risk associated with a specialty shop. We will be offering something for everyone to increase both traffic and smiles.
Although many small businesses do fail, I have successfully grown my business each of the last five years and have the knowledge and experience to continue growing well into the future.
I'll be sure to keep our backers informed along the way
