My Personal Testimony by Karl Owen...Co owner @ Barbara's....  

  I am Barbara's husband & co-owner of Barbara's Cake & Cookie.  I am a Texas A&M graduate (Class of '80 History Major).  I served on the Grand Prairie Historical Commission for 6 years & Vice-Chaired for 2 years...and own 2 Grand Prairie City Landmarks (the business & our home.) More importantly, I am a born again Christian & re-dedicated to The Lord Jesus in August, 1983, at my grandparents' house in Maine. 

        Honor your parents while & if they are still living.  Visit them.  Call them.  Write them.  Send them a  card.  Okay, e-mail them if you like.  Remember them in your prayers.  Honor them in life.  Believe me, they will not always be around, that is, if you survive them. We also know that first-hand. 

  My wife & I will be praying for those that God puts in our path who have lost loved ones, including parents.  Some of those folks are our dear customers who are now going through the holiday minus a loved one.  WE can relate & understand!  I admonish you all to 'take it to The Lord in prayer.'  Let His Holy Spirit comfort in your times of grief.  Jesus said "I am with you always...

" (Matt. 28:20).

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.

I had the privilege of demonstrating cake decorating on the cooking stages @ the Infomart (located in Dallas), the Fort Worth Convention Center, several schools, women's clubs, and churches. Our cakes have graced such places as: Four Season's Country Club, Fort Worth Club, Reunion Tower, Hilton Garden Inns, Marriot Hotels, & so many more that I cannot remember. I was interviewed on radio stations: KCBI 90.9 FM, formally KVTT 91.7 FM, & K104 FM. I 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. A few years ago, we had a  gingerbread house 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 my autograph, I said, " Get out of here! Are you kidding me?" After that, well, I just started signing! LOL Praise God!  Since the bakery has been open now for 20 years, we have met some of the most AMAZING customers!

As a little girl I loved to cook & bake, but especially decorate with foods! I won my 1st cake contest in elementary school. (They felt sorry for me because the top layer fell off.) A few years later when graduating from my first cake class, the instructor informed me that I have a talent from God! PTL I dreamed for many years about opening a bakery in Grand Prairie & waited on the Lord for 19 years when He opened that door. Since then, God has opened many doors for the bakery to excel.

In 1975, I demonstrated cakes for Sanger Harris in the downtown Dallas, Preston Center, & Valley View stores. The class was taught at Sanger's in the Preston Center location. Previously, classes were taught in New Orleans, Louisiana.

You will be shown how to ice buttercreme frosting for a round single layer 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 class is usually held on a Monday for approx. 2 hours from 9am–11am. *Barbara teaches private lessons only at this time.

Call to set up an appointment for your lesson!
