Little Village Bakery (Wedding Cakes)

Little Village Bakery (LVB) began long before the name came about. My passion for all things sweet began as soon as I could see over the stove. I started making pies and cupcakes for friends and family during the holidays and slowly began expanding to fulfill orders for those who wanted something sweet. Fast forward some years and after a year in college, I wanted to pursue my culinary passion.
