About Barbara

2' Tall Gingerbread Houses in Competition

Barbara's Basic Cake Decorating Class

Barbara demonstrating cakes on live cooking stages.

When Barbara graduated from her first cake class, the instructor informed her that she has a talent from God! Since then, God has opened many doors for the bakery to excel.

 In 1975, she demonstrated cakes for Sanger Harris in the downtown Dallas, Preston Center, & Valley View stores. She taught the cake decorating class at Sanger's in the Preston Center location.

Barbara has taught cake decorating previously in New Orleans, Louisiana and has demonstrated cake decorating on the cooking stages for the Infomart (located in Dallas) and the Fort Worth Convention Center. Also at several schools, women's clubs and churches.

She was interviewed on radio stations: KCBI 90.9 FM, formally KVTT 91.7 FM, & K104 FM.

She was interviewed on the TV Show..."What's Happening" in Grand Prairie with former Mayor Pro-Tem  Ruthe Jackson. Also an interview with the Grand Prairie Reporter.

Barbara had a gingerbread house a few years ago on a TV commercial with Ronald McDonald Charities & Southwest Airlines. It aired from California to New York during the holiday season. The children were happily standing around the gingerbread house and decorating it with tons of frosting and candy. They loved it! It made the press & to the first 3 people that came into the shop asking for her autograph, she said, " Get out of here! Are you kidding me?" After that, she just started signing! LOL Praise God!

We do not take orders online.

 Please contact Barbara: Tuesday - Saturday from 9am - 2pm to place your custom orders!

  My Personal Testimony by Karl Owen


I am Barbara's husband & co-owner of Barbara's Cake & Cookie.  I am a Texas A&M graduate (Class of '80).  More importantly, I am born again & re-dedicated to The Lord Jesus in August, 1983, at my grandparents' house in Maine. 

        During this holiday season, honor your parents while & if they are still living.  Visit them.  Call them.  Write them.  Send them a Christmas card.  Okay, e-mail them if you like.  Remember them in your prayers.  Honor them in life.  Believe me, they will not always be around, that is, if you survive them.  We also know that first-hand. 

    Finally, my wife & I will be praying for those that God puts in our path who have lost loved ones, including parents.  Some of those folks are our dear customers who are now going through the holidays minus a loved one.  WE can relate & understand!  I admonish you all to 'take it to The Lord in prayer.'  Let His Holy Spirit comfort in your times of grief.  Jesus said "I am with you always..." (Matt. 28:20).    kwo  

I am going to close with a poem written anonymously entitled:

      My First Christmas in Heaven

         I  see the countless Christmas trees, Around the world below. With tiny lights like Heaven's stars

 Reflecting on the snow. The sight is so spectacular. Please wipe away that tear,

 For I am spending Christmas With Jesus Christ this year. I hear the many Christmas songs

 That people hold so dear, But the sound of music cannot compare with the Christmas Choir up here. 

 I have no words to tell you the joy their voices bring.  For it is beyond description To hear the angels sing.

  I know how much you miss me.  I see the pain inside your heart, but I am not so far away.  We really aren't apart. 

So, be happy for me, dear ones.  You know I hold you dear, and be glad I'm spending Christmas, With Jesus Christ, this year. 

 I send you each a special gift. From my heavenly home above.  I send you each a memory of my undying love. 

After all, love is a gift. More precious than pure gold. It is always most important In the stories Jesus told. 

 Please love each other as the Father said to do.  For, I cannot count the blessings or love He has for you. 

 So, have a Merry Christmas & wipe away that tear. Remember...I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

After much prayer, I have determined to no longer make bride & groom cakes. I have decorated for over 40 years...many of you have received my wedding shower...birthday...anniversary; etc.

Even your children's children have received cakes from Barbara's....

Last year after decorating a very heavy groom's cake, I twisted my knee & tore a ligament. These cakes are very heavy! Due to my age (I am no spring chicken) & no one to decorate them for me, I have decided to stop.


We will continue to offer cupcakes, cake balls, pies, some custom cakes,

 candies, & tons of homemade cookies.

 May God bless you!

The rules were: the house must be totally edible. All of the figurines & furniture were handmade out of icing! In Gingerbread competitions we've won 2nd place (missed the gold by 1 point) and three 3rd places (bronze). Took hours & days to complete each house. PTL!

We WON the 2011 "SMALL BUSINESS OF THE YEAR" in Grand Prairie, Texas! Praise God!
