🚨WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH SPOTLIGHT🚨

*FRIDAY*

Congratulations to Erica Simmons, owner of EK Cakery as we continue our Women Owned Business Recognition Week! EK Cakery opened their doors in downtown Belvidere in 2018. Since then, they have become a sweet tooth sensation in Northern Illinois!

Erica operates her small cake boutique all week long, however her shop is only open to the public on Saturdays from 10AM - 1PM. At this time, anyone can stop in and purchase her magical sweet treats such as macaroons and cupcakes. During the week, Erica and her team work passionately baking the most elegant and exquisite made-to-order cakes for personal and special events.

Make sure to make your next moment memorable with EK Cakery!

Congratulations Erica!

We decided to walk down and try out some of the delicious handpies from EK Cakery and even though technically a chocolate chip cookie isn't a pie, you can use pi to figure out the area of those delicious cookies!
EK Cakery & Endulza Tu Dia 815 did it again!
Thank you ladies sooo much! The cake was more than I had hoped for! πŸŽ‚β€οΈ
Matching cakes like it’s my job or something πŸ’• I wanted to eat this entire blueberry maple cake from EK Cakery but I swear I shared.
Erica from EK Cakery just dropped off these sweet treats. Oh, yes! They taste amazing. We both love the sprinkle of salt on the top! If you haven't already, take a look at some of their fun Valentine treats!

I’m interested in baby shower themed cookies for a date of Jan 30. Not sure if that is possible. Let me know. ❀️❀️❀️ Hope you all are feeling better!
Almost a year later and Dom STILL talks about his cake! πŸŽ‚
We’re looking forward to another EK Cakery & Endulza Tu Dia 815 (🀞🏼🀞🏼) collaboration 😍❀️
We love working with small businesses to create eye catching installs to draw guests in and leave a lasting impression for their events. So when EK Cakery reached out to us about wanting to welcome guests back to the store during this weeks Buchanan Street Stroll, it was a no brainer!

Their only request was that the colors be shades of pink and compliment their store. We went with a design that framed their entrance and added clusters to the bannisters to the sides of their store front to lead guests in.
Different sized orbz and starz helped give this install some fun texture!

Tag us if you see us while you’re out and about today! But most importantly, stop into @ekcakery for one of their delicious treats 🍰

A TORTA!!! In honor of April 1st I’m sharing this cake I made back in early 2020. Since it’s almost lunchtime it really has me second guessing my decision of bringing my own lunch to work. I would rather order a torta with steak right now from the restaurant down the street. That would be okay since it supports our local economy, right?πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‚

Hello! It’s been a while and we’ve gotten quite a few new followers lately. If you didn’t know, my name is Erica πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, and the β€œEK” in EK Cakery stands for Erica Koren (my first and middle name). My husband and I have owned this shop now for almost 4 years. We have a team of fabulous ladies that help us with everything. Here are a few things about me:
1. I’ve always lived in the southern Wisconsin/northern Illinois area. I love the Midwest because of it’s seasons, however, one of my favorite things is the beach or any kind of water even though I cannot swim.β˜€οΈπŸπŸŒ»β„οΈ
2. My husband calls me Queencess. πŸ‘‘β€οΈπŸ‘ΈπŸ»
3. You’ll most likely always see me with my hair in a bun. The reason for this is because my hair touches the ground. I’m 5’2”, so I’m pretty sure my hair is a little longer than that. Someday, I’ll show you a picture!
4. I’m obsessed with mini pigs, kites, glitter, and hot air balloons.🐷πŸͺβœ¨πŸŽˆ
5. I drink coffee every morning while I listen to podcasts and decorate your cake and cookies. So just know that either I’m getting really spiritual listening to preaching while I’m working, or I’m putting on my detective hat and listening to true crime shows! πŸ•΅πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
…and if you worked in our building you could probably hear me sing obnoxiously throughout the day. 🎀

Today is my husband Caleb’s 33rd Birthday! πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³ I don’t say it enough and people probably don’t realize how involved he is behind the scenes of our business. He works a full time job outside of the shop and still works at the shop or on it nearly everyday. He is the one who knew my dream and pushed me to pursue it even though I was super scared. He has been there during the shops victories and during the really difficult times. Aside from that he is my best friend, the best lover, husband and the person with all the dad jokes dispute not being a dad. 🀣 He is the best part of my life and the reason we get to do what we do. Happy Birthday Caleb! I love you! ❀️❀️❀️ (shirt from @bakeryteeco)!

This time of year we have a handful of weddings but we mostly make birthday and other custom cakes/cookies. It’s a nice change up since May-October we are mostly making wedding stuff. What are you ordering from us this year? Holiday treats, your wedding cake, grandmas birthday cake (feel free to share whatever it is)? Whatever you order we can’t wait to make it!πŸ’•

02/16/2022

This video is just a bit of our story that we’ve been wanting to share. We hope it’s encouraging for someone out there who is in the same situation or going through a rough time. You aren’t alone and you will come through!πŸ’—
Also, we didn’t mention this but we sold my husbands guitar, his amp, our camera, and anything we had of worth during those months. It felt like an eternity of struggle then but looking back it has made us super intentional and stronger. If we could survive those hard times we can survive anything. Take courage😘

I have been so behind on work I haven’t gotten a chance to celebrate fully. Thankfully my husband helped me get this post up before we go to bed tonight.
Anyway, words cannot even describe the awe and humility I feel knowing that we get to serve beautiful couples and be a part of their love stories. We have had the privilege to serve some of the best humans I know. I am also thankful for God, the support of my team and especially my husband. Last year we did 102 weddings (not including other orders, holidays or our retail). It was only me, our manager Jennifer and my husband on the weekends until we hired more help in November. I honestly don’t know how we did it. I have so many emotions about last year that I’ve wanted to share but not yet. Today I celebrate my couples and our team! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.❀️❀️❀️

01/14/2022

We are back from vacation!!!
Unfortunately we got the Rona and we still aren’t πŸ’― ready to open. We will be closed this Saturday (Jan 15th) for retail. We have cancelled all orders for this weekend and we are hopeful that next week we will be able to reopen!
Thank you so much for your understanding.
Side note, this virus is no joke. Everyone in my family has been super mindful, vaccinated and we still got sick. Although it’s been rough I’m sure it would have been much worse without those precautions. Please be safe and healthy! πŸ’—

Just a couple more weddings this month and then we are done for 2021. It’s hard to believe how fast this year went. ⏳😲 I’m sure every wedding vendor has been able to catch their breath a bit in the last month but January is the month where we can all really breath, get inspired and relax a bit before we start gearing up for all our new couples. It’s a wild ride but so wonderful!❀️❀️❀️

πŸͺπŸͺπŸͺCOOKIE TALK!🀀🀀🀀
Snickerdoodle cookies has always reminded me of the holidays. I think because they’re buttery and spiced.
I also love PB chocolate cookies and definitely sugar cookies for Christmas time. What’s your favorite cookie this time of year? Does your family make special cookies or is there a cookie you love for the holiday?

Photos from EK Cakery's post 12/07/2021

I’ve said it before but my favorite part about making weddings cakes/treats is the delivery! We get to see everything our couple talked about come to life. It’s extra special when they send us professional photos. This particular wedding as so romantic and dreamy! Loved getting to make their cake and cupcakes!!!✨β™₯️ πŸ“Έ by @orangeanchor

I loved this subtle nod to β€œWhere the Wild Things Are” on this cake. Not too themed, with white monochrome arrows, a crown and gold! Perfect way to celebrate a little one in style!✨✨✨ #wherethewildthingsareparty #wherethewildthingsarecake

As I’ve been making lists and prepping for thanksgiving (next week!) I started thinking about last year. Wow, I cannot help but be incredibly grateful. πŸ™πŸ½β€οΈ
We all know how last year went. 2️⃣πŸ”₯2️⃣πŸ”₯
For a small business owner like me (who didn’t get any of the grants we applied for or any loans) last year was wild. I am so thankful (like thankful doesn’t even describe how filled with gratitude I am) for all the mini cakes and small wedding cakes we made that somehow paid all our bills and expenses. We doubled our overhead last year with the retail side and I seriously DON’T know how we made it other than by the grace of God. You guys have been so supportive and God has been so beyond giving to us. ❀️😭
During our thanksgiving sale last year our refrigerator and freezer when out (which created a huge mess) on top of the busy day we had. It was caΓ³tico and I can’t help but laugh a little and wonder how we’ve survived everything.
I’ve been trying to prep extra hard so that nothing goes wrong this year. Lol! πŸ˜‚
If you have followed us, bought from us or liked or shared any of our posts thank you. We appreciate our most loyal customers, our first time ones and those who support online.
