Hi there! My name is Towanda and I am the owner, baker, and sweet treat creator of Out of the Box Bakes. I am a Jesus-loving wife and mother of 7. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends playing board games, doing anything crafty, or talking about the goodness of God.
Baking and decorating cakes is my passion. I began as a decorator at a local grocery chain at the age of 17 and fell in love. Owning my very own bakery is a dream come true because I love to use my creative talents to help others celebrate the ones they care for. I mean seriously, is there anything better than the smiles that appear on the faces of children eating cake? I like to say that I live vicariously through my desserts that get to be a part of my customers’ amazing celebratory occasions.
Established in 2019, Out of the Box Bakes was birthed from my lifelong dream and an unfortunate event. I was employed as the executive baker at a popular local small restaurant/bakery that was destroyed by a fire. When the owner shockingly decided not to rebuild, I was faced with a decision. Do I find another bakery to work for or take one of the biggest risks of my life and launch my very own? And here we are today! The Lord has truly blessed this endeavor and I am so very grateful for each customer who chooses Out of the Box Bakes to partner with them to make sweet memories.
