The owner of The Truth Bakes decorating a birthday cake

about the truth

it starts, as most stories do, once upon a time with a young girl, a box of cake mix, and a cupcake pan. at 16, i already knew what i wanted and it involved sprinkles and lots and lots of frosting. i continued to bake through high school and college.

years after graduating, i became serious about my bakes. working during the day and testing recipes at night and on my days off. making cakes for family and friends' birthdays, for the start of winter, for random weeknights just because. until i became satisfied with my bakes.

until it culminated here: the truth bakes. an idea i've had in my head for a year, i wouldn't have had the confidence to branch out if it weren't for my amazing husband. 


thank you all, sincerely, for joining me on this journey.
