LAURA PATRIZI, OWNER
I've been baking for as long as I can remember but decided in the Fall of 2017 to take my hobby to the next level. I began accepting orders for macarons, petit fours, and holiday pies and when the orders came flooding in, Petite Sweets Bakery was born! I have since expanded into cakes and decorated cookies, and now offer a full menu of baked goodies, petite and not-so-petite. If it needs baking, I can make it!
Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.
I'm a cottage baker, certified by the State of Texas in food handling and safety, and work out of my home kitchen when I'm not busy chasing around my kiddos; I love that my job allows me to be home and share my love of baking with my family (they love sampling the extras!).
I draw upon my background in art and design to create works of art that are as appealing on the outside as they are on the inside. I enjoy that each week is different and presents new creative challenges. However, one thing doesn’t change: I prioritize flavor over everything else. If it comes from my kitchen, it's going to taste delicious.
Q: HOW MUCH NOTICE DO YOU NEED TO COMPLETE AN ORDER?
I PREFER AT LEAST A WEEKS NOTICE; HOWEVER, I DO ACCEPT LAST MINUTE ORDERS BASED ON MY AVAILABILITY. BOOKING TWO TO THREE WEEKS IN ADVANCE IS RECOMMENDED WHEN AT ALL POSSIBLE, ESPECIALLY DURING BUSY SEASONS (HOLIDAYS, GRADUATION, ETC).
Q: HOW DO YOU PRICE YOUR DESSERTS? AND HOW/WHEN DO I PAY?
MOST CAKES ARE PRICED PER SERVING WHILE OTHER ITEMS ARE PRICED BY THE DOZEN. SEE MY FULL MENU AND STARTING PRICING HERE, OR CONTACT ME FOR AN EXACT QUOTE. METHODS OF PAYMENT ACCEPTED INCLUDE CASH, PERSONAL CHECK, CREDIT CARDS, PAYPAL OR VENMO. ELECTRONIC PAYMENT IS DUE IN ADVANCE, OR CASH AT PICKUP. FOR ORDERS OF $150 OR MORE, A NON-REFUNDABLE 50% DEPOSIT IS DUE AT BOOKING.
Q: CAN YOU HELP ME DETERMINE HOW BIG OF A CAKE I NEED TO ORDER FOR MY GROUP SIZE?
YES! ROUND CAKES ARE TYPICALLY THREE LAYERS, WITH TWO LAYERS OF ICING OR FILLING IN BETWEEN, SO THEY ARE QUITE TALL! IN GENERAL, A 6” ROUND CAKE SERVES 10 GENEROUS SLICES, A 7" SERVES APPROXIMATELY 15, AN 8” ROUND SERVES ABOUT 20, AND A 10” ROUND SERVES 28. TIERED CAKES ARE RECOMMENDED FOR 30+ SERVINGS. ASK ME FOR MORE INFO.
Q: WHERE IS YOUR BAKERY LOCATED?
I BAKE OUT OF MY HOME IN FLOWER MOUND, TEXAS AND AM CERTIFIED BY THE STATE OF TEXAS IN FOOD HANDLING AND SAFETY.
Q: DO I NEED TO PICK UP MY ORDER OR DO YOU DELIVER?
PICKUP OF BAKERY ITEMS IS AT MY HOME IN NORTHEAST FLOWER MOUND, OR DELIVERY IS AVAILABLE WITHIN A 10 MILE RADIUS OF MY ADDRESS FOR $10. FOR DELIVERY OUTSIDE OF THIS RADIUS, AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE WILL APPLY.
Q: DO YOU HAVE OPTIONS FOR THOSE WITH DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?
YES! I BELIEVE EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO ENJOY DESSERT! I HAVE GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE, VEGAN, AND NUT-FREE OPTIONS. WHILE I CAREFULLY AVOID CROSS-CONTAMINATION, MY KITCHEN DOES UTILIZE WHEAT, EGGS, DAIRY, AND NUTS.
Q: CAN YOU INDIVIDUALLY PACKAGE MY COOKIES?
YES! COOKIES CAN BE INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED IN HEAT SEALED PACKAGES AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
Q: WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
WHILE I MAKE EVERY POSSIBLE EFFORT TO ENSURE THAT YOUR CAKE WILL WITHSTAND TRAVEL AND IS PACKAGED SECURELY, I CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGES THAT OCCUR TO YOUR CAKE OR BAKED ITEMS AFTER PICKUP OR DELIVERY. CAKES ARE FRAGILE AND ARE VERY SUSCEPTIBLE TO DAMAGE DUE TO MOTION, SUNLIGHT, HUMIDITY, AND TEMPERATURE. FOR THIS REASON, WE OFFER DELIVERY OR RECOMMEND TRANSPORTING YOUR CAKE ON THE FRONT FLOOR BOARD OF A TEMPERATURE-CONTROLLED VEHICLE AND NOT DRIVING IT AROUND MORE THAN ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
Laura made the most delicious chocolate and strawberry cupcakes i've ever had. I asked her to decorate them with a succulent theme and she blew me away with how amazingly talented she is. Thank you so much, Laura, you made the baby shower I hosted a huge success!
The craftsmanship of her pies and cakes are beautiful. They are moist and taste delicious. She can modify whatever you would like her to do. I order something at least once a month.
Laura made some Petite Fours for my wife's birthday and they were delicious. The personal touch Laura provides is wonderful.
