While pursuing a degree in Nutrition and Dietetics at Louisiana State University, Laura-Kate realized that she needed a hobby. She wanted a hobby that would fulfill her passion for art and creativity. It was about this same time that she started taking notice of the amazing things cake and dessert artists were doing on television and elsewhere. She immediately saw that this could be the very medium she was looking for, and promptly enrolled in her first cake decorating class. It did not take long for this hobby to become a passion, and soon Laura-Kate was creating desserts and custom cakes for friends and family in all of her spare time. After getting married and moving to Austin, Texas, Laura-Kate decided it was time to turn this hobby into a career. She enrolled at Texas Culinary Academy-Le Cordon Bleu, where she excelled and graduated as a Pastry Chef with high honors. After doing an internship at the historic Driskill Hotel, Laura-Kate decided to focus on custom wedding and party cakes and thus Sweet Stirrings was born.

Whether you are wanting a custom designed wedding cake, a sculpted groom's cake, a party cake, or a dessert buffet, Laura-Kate will put her love and passion into making your day special!
