We are a husband and wife team, Larry and Patti, that have both held careers with the military and are about to retire. Larry has 32 years serving in the military and Patti has 27 years working as a civilian for the military. Both too young to retire, we decided to enter our next journey in life with a business venture.


When our daughter Trish graduated from high school a few years ago we decided a traditional cake was not enough and wanted something different. Being creative by nature we chose to build a base that we could display cupcakes on so the cake would not require cutting and as people arrived they could just help themselves. The base of the display became a photo tribute to Trish through the years and once the cupcakes were decorated as a whole they took on the appearance of an actual cake.


So the idea took off and friends and family wanted their own creation for special events; each one being unique and different based on the request from the recipient. Here we are today, retiring from our full time jobs and now operating under the name Patti Cake Creations as a veteran and woman owned business, making custom designed “cupcake” cakes. Visit our photo gallery for some ideas for your next event but keep in mind we will create a design to fit any occasion.
