Hello! My name is Ali Patton. I am the owner, baker, decorator, and photographer behind AliCakes! My husband and I live in McAlester, where I was born and raised, with our sweet baby Hank and fur child Arthur.
My baking adventure started when I was in high school. I baked cakes and cupcakes for friends and family. My friends loved to sit on the kitchen floor while I baked for hours and eat my sweets at our sleepovers. They gave me the nicknames Ali Crocker (like Betty Crocker) and AliCakes. AliCakes stuck, so I decided to start calling myself that too. While in college, I took a few basic cake courses in addition to my Elementary Education classes. I wanted to learn more about decorating, so I moved on to more advanced professional PME courses. After completing my courses, I was curious to see if I could make a business out of my love for baking. AliCakes took off and I started selling cakes and cupcakes to friends, family, and even customers I had never met before! I continued baking while teaching first graders for 3 years. I am now baking full time!
My little family is blessed by the support and love you give my small business. I am thankful to be apart of your big and little events!
