Hi, I'm Lindsay! Throughout high school, I baked cakes with friends for something fun to do on weekends. In February 2011 after switching to an Entrepreneurship major at the University of North Dakota, the idea of Lb Cakes started to come to reality.
Beginning summer 2011, I started taking cake decorating classes at Michael's. I enjoyed it so much that I began working as a cake decorator in the SuperTarget bakery. Having worked there for two years and graduating from UND with majors in Marketing, Management and Entrepreneurship, I moved on to a full-time job on campus.
I operate under Cottage Food Laws. My products are made in a home kitchen that is not inspected by the state or local health department. I have a great support group backing me up and pushing me every step of the way. I am married to my wonderful husband, Andrew, who puts up with my crazy work hours. My parent's also live in Grand Forks and they help out with my business whenever possible. We are a close-knit group and I love spending time with them!
As of March 15, 2022, I am no longer accepting new clients. I take pride in my work and I don't want to start offering less value to my current clients. I have spread myself too thin and I need to work on creating a healthy balance between my full-time job, home life and cake decorating.
