Welcome to Barbara's Home Page
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.
Our cakes have graced such places as: Four Season's Country Club, Fort Worth Club, Reunion Tower, Hilton Garden Inns, Marriot Hotels, Women's Clubs, several churches, & so many more that I cannot remember.
Interviewed on radio stations:
KCBI 90.9 FM,
formally KVTT 91.7 FM,

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...Bob Fitch.

My Personal Testimony by Karl Owen...Co owner @ Barbara's....
I am Barbara's husband & co-owner of Barbara's Cake & Cookie Boutique. More importantly, I am a born again Christian & re-dedicated to The Lord Jesus in August, 1983, at my grandparents' house in Maine.
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).
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.
Remember: "...O, Taste & see that the Lord is good...." Psalm 34:8
