"It Takes a Village"

Village Bakes started as a personal challenge. For my birthday I bought myself a basic cake decorating set on Amazon so I could try to teach myself how to make all of those fancy cakes that I saw on social media.

Through lots of practice and even more butter, I grew my new little hobby into a business that I named Village Bakes!

Why such an obscure name? I sat down and thought long and hard about what to call my business. I wanted it to encompass not only me, but everyone who makes what I do possible. My friends, my family, my Village.
They say "It Takes a Village" to make dreams happen, so let my Village help you make your dream celebration happen!

It's in the Recipe

My buttcream is the best thing that I've learned how to make. Soft, smooth, creamy and sweet its taken me quite a few tries to perfect, so here it is just for you! 1 bag of a high quality confectioners sugar (like Domino, the store brand often has lumps and has a different ratio of ingredients). 3 sticks of softened butter (I leave mine on the counter overnight). A splash of vanilla and a hearty splash of whole milk. And that's it! Just 4 ingredients away from tasty perfection!
