Welcome to Gwendolyn's Goodies

So about 5 years ago a friend of mine was having a baby and I volunteered to make the cake for her baby shower.  It was a team effort and what came later was truly the funniest thing ever.  And I hoped to never make a cake with pink flamingos again (but recently ate my words).

And after that, it seemed that I became "the cake lady", making cakes for family and friends' kids' parties and other occasions.  My very supportive hubby kept telling me to "do something" with my cake interests.  And so, I took a class and learned nothing except how to make roses.  Then I spent an evening with the very talented Mrs. Young and learned A TON (and that I could have saved my money on the cake decoration class).  After that night realized that I had what it takes to "really do something" with my interest and love for cake decorating.  And so "Gwendolyn's Goodies" was born!

This blog is going to be slow going.  I"m a cake decorator not a web designer :-)  Check back periodically for updates.  I hope to have a full gallery up soon as well as logos, contacts, prices, etc.

Please email me if you have an interest in a cake or cupcakes.

I look forward to hearing from you!


  1. Jen,

    This is awesome! I as well love to decorate cakes and love coming up with new ideas to do them. I never thought of going into business, since I mainly make cakes for the family. Wishing all the best for a successful business.


  2. Thanks Lindsay! It all started with friends and family but given the time and love I put into them, I thought why not share the love, right??!!!

    Ran into your mommy in the parking lot of McKay's in Leonardtown the other night. Connor was trying to steal her Papa John's pizza! Made me think how much I miss you guys...let me know next time you are in town...I would LOVE to get together!
