GRAPHIC DESIGNER TURNED SELF TAUGHT BAKER AND DECORATOR
Marga's Lil Cakes began as an idea, but became a reality once I had a kitchen large enough to accommodate all of my kitchen gadgets!! I've been baking since I was old enough (and tall enough) to work an oven, so there is a LOT of experience behind me in the Baking School of Life.
My love for baking cupcakes spiked an all-time high when I was pregnant with with my youngest son. Nothing satisfied my cravings more than cupcakes. So I started baking new flavors of cupcakes every week until I found my favorite recipes.
At one point, a friend asked me to cater cupcakes for her wedding! I fell in LOVE! Cupcake decorating had instantly become my favorite thing! The picture to the left is one of three cupcake towers I filled for her cake table. It was one of my greatest cupcake accomplishments!
Cupcakes are the perfect combination of my love for art and baking because cupcakes need to be delicious AND beautiful! With my graphic design and artistic background, cupcakes seemed like a great place to start. With the encouragement and support of my friends and family, I decided to take my skills a step further and offer my cupcakes to everyone! And that is the story of how Marga's Lil Cakes began.
It has since grown to be a super-customizable ordeal. I work with a lot of orders for customers with food allergies (nuts, dairy, egg, wheat, etc.). I have also expanded my flavors to include vegan options (which are delicious by the way). I even create cakes, macarons, and lots of other delicious treats!
I am currently located in Plainfield, IL with my two sons, husband, cat, and dog. If you are near the area, I am happy to fulfill your sweet tooth needs!
What the Tasters Say...
I tried the macrons. So yummy! I seriously thought I was chewing bubble gum when I bit into it but nope it was a delicious macron. Price is reasonable. So much so I bought two packs of 3.
I just tried the 24 Carrot Magic cupcake and it was hands down the best carrot cake I've had! The frosting wasn't too sweet and the cake was perfect! ❤ #thebomb
Thank you Marga!
Marga is great to work with and her cupcakes are both delicious and gorgeous. She made cupcakes for a work event and they were a hit. Thanks Marga!
