I’m Katelyn Wait and I’m the owner of Tier One Cakes, L.L.C.. Tier One Cakes is a bakery offering custom sweets for all occasions. We offer cakes, cupcakes, cookie cakes, brownie cakes, cookies and decorated cookies! We are based out of the Cypress/Tomball, Texas area and all orders are custom, by appointment only. We began in July of 2017, with about 3 years of prior bakery/decorating experience, and hope to eventually become a commercial bakery in the near future! Check out our menu to see what we offer and follow us on social media to see what we are up to!
Our cakes are available as layer cakes, tiered cakes, sheet cakes and smash cakes. Each cake is completely customizable, and while fondant icing and decorations are available, we prefer to work with mostly buttercream.
Cupcakes are offered in all of the cake flavors, the specialty flavors listed , or you can make your own flavor combination! Cupcakes come in two sizes; Standard and Jumbo (Jumbo is about twice the size of a standard cupcake). They are ordered by the dozen, with one flavor per dozen.
Our decorated cookies are a Shortbread cookie iced with Royal Icing. These cookies can be ordered in any number, with no minimum number of cookies. Each cookie is completely customized to fit the design that you are wanting. We do offer cookie bouquet and individually wrapped options. We put the upmost detail into each cookie and have found that they are our most popular product.
