2' Tall Gingerbread

 Houses in


The rules were: the house must be totally edible. All of the figurines & furniture were handmade out of icing! In Gingerbread competitions we've won 2nd place (missed the gold by 1 point) and three 3rd places (bronze). Took hours & days to complete each house. PTL!

The Chopin's "Nocturne" is performed live by Dr. Karen Murphy (Karl's sister, who is pictured). Thank you, Dr. Karen! She is teaching at Mississippi State.

When Barbara graduated from her first cake class, the instructor informed her that she has a talent from God! Since then, God has opened many doors for the bakery to excel.

 In 1975, she demonstrated cakes for Sanger Harris in the downtown Dallas, Preston Center, & Valley View stores. She taught the cake decorating class at Sanger's in the Preston Center location.

Barbara has taught cake decorating previously in New Orleans, Louisiana and has demonstrated cake decorating on the cooking stages for the Infomart (located in Dallas) and the Fort Worth Convention Center. Also at several schools, women's clubs and churches.

She was interviewed on radio stations: KCBI 90.9 FM, formally KVTT 91.7 FM, & K104 FM.

She was interviewed on the TV Show..."What's Happening" in Grand Prairie with former Mayor Pro-Tem  Ruthe Jackson. Also an interview with the Grand Prairie Reporter.

Barbara had a gingerbread house a few years ago on a TV commercial with Ronald McDonald Charities & Southwest Airlines. It aired from California to New York during the holiday season. The children were happily standing around the gingerbread house and decorating it with tons of frosting and candy. They loved it! It made the press & to the first 3 people that came into the shop asking for her autograph, she said, " Get out of here! Are you kidding me?" After that, she just started signing! LOL Praise God!

After much prayer, I have determined to no longer make bride & groom cakes. I have decorated for over 40 years...many of you have received my wedding shower...birthday...anniversary; etc.

Even your children's children have received cakes from Barbara's....

Last year after decorating a very heavy groom's cake, I twisted my knee & tore a ligament. These cakes are very heavy! Due to my age (I am no spring chicken) & no one to decorate them for me, I have decided to stop.


We will continue to offer cupcakes, cake balls, pies, some custom cakes, candies, & tons of homemade cookies.

 May God bless you!

We do not take orders online.

 Please contact Barbara: Tuesday - Saturday from 9am - 2pm to place your custom orders!

Thank you for contacting

It is up to you to practice! Start squeezing a rubber ball now to build up your strength for decorating. The classes are usually held on a Monday for approx. 2 hours from 10am–12pm.

  My Personal Testimony by Karl Owen


I am Barbara's husband & co-owner of Barbara's Cake & Cookie.  I am a Texas A&M graduate (Class of '80).  More importantly, I am born again & re-dedicated to The Lord Jesus in August, 1983, at my grandparents' house in Maine. 

 Before that, I was involved in the occult for about 17yrs.  I was involved in Tarot card reading (3 decks), white witchcraft, & parapsychological research.  People that think dabbling in the occult is innocent, harmless fun are GRAVEly mistaken.  One must read the Bible to discover that God  denounces the occult as sinful & witchcraft as abomination (Deut. 18:9-13).  Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft (1 Sam. 15:22).  They that worketh abomination shall not inherit the kingdom of God (Revelation 21:27).  One who practices sorcery will not inherit the kingdom of God (Gal. 5:20).    It is a very serious matter!   God convicted me of my occult trafficking shortly after I came back to Christ.  I repented of my involvement in the occult & renounced it.  I turned my back on such sinful behavior & walked away from it.  It is only in my distant past now, PTL! 

This is the message I have to give for the Halloween season.  This is why we @ the bakery do positive cake themes ie.,pumpkin,autumn leaves, fall festival, etc.  We do not decorate ghosts, goblins, ghouls, etc. on our bakery products because we do not want to glorify the devil nor his hellish activities.  This is our right as business owners:  to choose what type of products we will sell & how they are decorated based on our religious convictions! 

God bless you with a happy & SAFE Halloween!  Remember, God created the full moon, the pumpkins, all creatures here below (ie. bats, wolves, etc.).  Give God Glory for that & not to anyone or anything else!  kwo
