About Kelly

Kelly Powell is the owner and operator of Kelly's Cakes.  Born and raised in Austin, Texas, she has a deep love for family, music, food and fun.  In the 20+ years that she spent working in the service industry, her understanding of the art of cooking and food preparation grew as well as her enthusiasm for learning new things.  What started out as a mild obsession, turned into a true passion for cooking.  It wasn’t until she moved to San Antonio, Texas in 2006 that she had the opportunity to explore the artistic side of food.  

During her time in San Antonio, she avidly pursued the art of baking and cake designing.  As an artist, the concept of cake designing came fairly easily to her.  She spent years honing her recipes, learning new decorating techniques and studied the finer points of cake decorating. In January of 2008, Kelly’s Cakes was created.  

When she returned to Austin in 2011, she worked at A Trip To Bountiful Bakery & Café.  In her time at Bountiful, she also had the honor of working with Becky Nichols, and the Loving Libbie Memorial Foundation. The non-profit foundation provides relief to Central Texas children with cancer as they fight the greatest battle of their young lives. Through their Comfort Through Food Program, they were able to make hundreds of children and adults alike smile with cakes made for their birthdays and end of treatment parties. They also created the desserts & cakes for large events including the annual Hungry Bunch Prom, Halloween Party, Childhood Cancer Awareness Fair and the Lights of Love 5k for the Children’s Blood & Cancer Center, Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas and the Austin Ronald McDonald House.

As of March 2014, Kelly's Cakes operates as a home bakery business at 4505 Truth Way Austin, Texas 78725. She continues to expand her client base by focusing on one basic value that she holds very dear, quality over quantity.

Our Concept

The sole purpose of this venture was to create something that no one else in the area was offering.  Most bakeries would have you choose your design from a catalog of cakes or only have standard cakes for you to choose from.  We understand that there are many bakeries and home bakers to choose from when it comes to selecting a cake. Our aim is to provide custom, one-of-a-kind cakes & cookies for all of our clients.



Our core concept is more about full client services than just making great cakes and cookies.  We strive to create unique cakes and cookies with our clients ideas as the basis of the design, but catering to our clients every need is what has made Kelly's Cakes successful.  Our party planning services and the fact that our clients never have to leave their home for a consultation or to pick up their cakes have been some of the most well received aspects of our services.  

Our full client services include:
-Design consultation
-Party planning services
-Rental equipment
