Operating as usual


So it has been a while since I closed the bakery. I've been out exploring the world of retail, working hard, and praying about my next steps. It's hard to keep a crafty person out of the craft room!
I'm now introducing my new business, I hope y'all will bless me by taking a peak and liking my page and helping me to get started as you did with Cottage Cakes! It's not made with sugar, but it's ever so sweet!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Mychal Word and Clarece Johnson Word, married March 21 at Silver Lake Ballroom. Due to the virus, their ceremony was reduced to 50 attendees, but they celebrated their love and union.

"I thank my God every time I think of you." ~Philippians 1:3


Thank you everyone for the prayers and hugs during the past two weeks. Your prayers and God’s strength hold me strong in my weakest moments. 💗💗💗


It is with great pain and unbelievable sorrow that I share that my son, Justin Walter McCart, passed away yesterday. He lived a short life, but he filled it to the brink with outdoors and God’s natural experiences, education, and deep love for his wife, Rachel. He loved us all deeply and he was so very deeply loved. He is now with Christ in Heaven, wrapped in HIS Glory and Mercy. Praise God, Amen.

I will be taking some time off. I will contact my orders individually. Please pray for him, my family, and all that loved him.


Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Karlton Carroll and Corsica Moore Carroll! Married this past Saturday at Dixie Gin. Their original plans were for a reception after a small beach wedding, their plans changed with stay-at-home orders, but they decided to keep the fun beach themed wedding cake! Thank you both!

Dear friends and followers of Cottage Cakes & Confections, I want to update you on what is happening at the bakery during this COVID-19 crisis.

All weddings and special events through April 13 have been either cancelled or postponed by the couples or event centers.

Due to supporting my son and his wife in caring for my grandson so that he does not go to nursery, I will not take any orders during this time. I will however continue to schedule weddings and large events and pray they will come to fruition. This will be a very difficult year for us all, but God will see us through it. If I may answer any questions for you, please do not hesitate to contact me through messenger or text 318-505-7825.

I will continue to post pictures that have not been posted starting Monday of next week. I pray you will continue to follow Cottage Cakes and pray for me through this "cold oven" time. Prayers and blessings to all, stay safe and healthy.

Special Occasion Cakes and Large order cupcakes: Weddings, Anniversaries, Wedding Showers, Baby Showers, Birthdays, Retirement and Gender Reveals. I apologize for the necessity, however, please be aware that my minimum order is $110 pre-tax .

I opened my business to offer affordable and beautiful cakes that will provide for my clients special occasions, however, I no longer offer cookies, cake pops, and have a minimum order of $110 pre-tax, so that my time and resources are spent wisely. I appreciate your understanding and apologize for any disappointment this may cause to clients wanting small serving cakes.

Please also understand that in being the sole baker and designer of my business, I do not overbook my schedule. I recommend contacting me a minimum of 8 weeks out to request a cake. However, if my schedule is full at the time of the request, even if you are a past client, I will be unable to take additional orders. Every booked client will receive my utmost quality of service, and that cannot be offered with overbooking.

My sincerest appreciation for your patronage!
