A bakery located in Indianapolis, Indiana.
LaCretia’s love for Southern cuisines and desserts began early on, inspired by her Southern parents and their love of Soul Food and its traditions. She was born and raised on the West side of Indianapolis right down the street from the Indianapolis 500. Before she started to bake herself, she watched her older sisters whipping up baked goods in the kitchen. She attended All Saints Catholic school. Oftentimes, the school would have bake sales to raise money. She would bake sweet treats for the bake sale where she was dubbed Ms. Betty Crocker by her friends. She entered a yearly hobby show at school where she made her first custom cake with the help of her Cousin in the fifth grade. After elementary school, she went to Cardinal Ritter High School and later transferred to Ben Davis High School where she continued her Foods classes.
LaCretia thought it would be wise and beneficial to have a career in Corporate America than in baking. She went to school and received her degree in Accounting. As a hobby, she signed up for a cake decorating class at Cake Create, a local cake and craft supply store. She made cakes for family and friends. Every time there was a family birthday or special occasion, she would make a custom cake. Everybody would ask if this was a Cretia Cake, meaning was this cake made by Cretia.
