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!

He is the brain and muscle behind the bakery and the man behind the scene.
My Personal Testimony by Karl Owen
I am Barbara's husband and co-owner of Barbara's Cake & Cookie Boutique. I am a Texas A&M graduate (Class of 80). More importantly, I am born again, and I rededicated my life to The Lord Jesus in August, 1983 at my grandparent's house in Maine.
Give God Glory for that and no one or nothing else!
2013 has been a BANNER year for the bakery!
We won in the top 5 of the 2013 Dallas A-List "Best Dessert" Category, 2013 Talk of the Town "4 Star" Award, 2013 Fleur-de-lis Wedding Show "Best Booth" award, and the 2013 Taste of Grand Prairie "Best Decorated Booth" award! Praise be to God!
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!
You will be shown how to ice buttercreme frosting for a round cake and how to make dots, stars, shells, leaf work, figure piping, writing, roses, carnations, daisies and mums. 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.
