My name is Courtney Dill and I love baking !
I have been baking cakes for as long as I can remember. My very first cake I designed to celebrate my dad getting a job at Southwest Airlines. It was then and there that my love and passion for creating custom cakes was born. I have been baking ever since !
In the beginning I made large custom cakes for friends and family birthday functions. I then left for college and pursued a degree in music and psychology. I met my husband Daniel the summer after I graduated and we married in November 2009.
For the next two years I taught elementary school in Grand Prairie, TX. After this I worked as a recruiter for my Alma Mater Dallas Baptist University and loved it! But I always would make up excuses to bring baked goods to the office. :)
Throughout these years I never forgot my love for baking and continued to provide wedding and special occasion cakes for friends and family.
In August 2013 my daughter Amelia Grace was born and I was able to stay home with her. At this point I was able to dedicate time and attention to my cakes more than ever and my business Lighthouse Cakes was launched !
I am so excited !
Why the name Lighthouse Cakes? Good question! :)
I am a Jesus follower and believe that we are to give Him glory in everything we do. He gave me the idea for the name and the motto-
"Spreading the light and sweetness of Jesus to the world".
Just as His Word is like a lighthouse shedding light on our circumstances and giving us hope I strive to spread light and love through cake!
I am dedicated to providing uniquely designed cakes without compromising taste. I love to tailor my cakes to customer preference and can model them after invitations and photos. I use the highest quality ingredients and strive to pay attention to the small details that ensure each cake is special and one of a kind. Thank you for stopping by my site and I hope to meet you soon!
