Pro Tip: Only the best of the best have made it onto our list! By definition, “cottage bakers” do not typically have physical store fronts that you can go to, and all orders must be placed online (or over the phone) for pickup or delivery. If you’re looking for bakers with physical store fronts that you can go visit, you’ll want to read our article covering the best local bakeries in Waco, or, the best dessert places in Waco.

Pink Lemon Bakery

If you’ve never thought about ordering a unicorn cake – you absolutely should. Pink Lemon Bakery is a cottage bakery in Waco, TX and they’re frequently referred by locals as being one of the top cottage bakers in town.

And when you check them out on social media, it’s easy to see why. Without even tasting their baked goods, you can tell that they put their heart and soul into every piece of art that they create.

And when I say art… I mean it. It’s beyond impressive – and delicious!


Cakes by The Pound

Cakes by The Pound is possibly one of the most well-known cottage bakers in Waco.

That is in part because Cakes by The Pound makes baked goods for quite a few other local businesses and restaurants including Dos Mundos Spud Shack, and Sascees Southern Style Eatery.

Whatever you want, Cakes By The Pound has what you need:

  • Cupcakes
  • Cheesecake
  • Cookies
  • Fruit Cups
  • Pudding
  • Pies
  • Funnel Cakes

Cakes By The Pound is also a little different from some of the other cottage bakers in Waco in that they bake all of their goods out of a commercial kitchen space in Waco.

Which also means that gives them the flexibility to work with a third-party delivery service like Door Dash. So you can order delicious baked goods and have them delivered to your front door!

Hecas Baked Goods

She may be one of the more recently opened cottage bakeries in Waco, but she’s certainly not letting that stop her from being one of the best.

Yes, that’s a cake. And yes, it’s hilarious. If you’re looking for a local bakery in Waco that also has a sense of humor, then Hecas Baked Goods should be your go-to cottage bakery.

The birthday cake game at Hecas Baked Goods is untouchable. When you follow them on social media, you’ll see that birthday cakes are one of their most-ordered baked goods, so if you have a birthday coming up for someone special in your life – you can count on Hecas Baked Goods to make it memorable.

If you’re hosting a baby shower, Jimmie Quinns also has you covered. I just LOVE the cookie designs for one of their latest baby shower events!

For being a cottage bakery in Waco, Jimmie Quinns is also incredibly active in the local community; they frequently show up at pop up shops as a baked goods vendor, collaborate with other businesses in the area, and routinely host fun events featuring their baked goods and more.

Violette Bakery specializes in Macarons and Macaron Cakes in a wide-variety of designs and flavors ranging from coffee, vanilla bean, strawberries and cream, london fog, and many, many others.

Johnsonville Cakes- Jville

This local bakery has been in business since 2013, and they know a thing or two about baking delicious cakes, cookies, cupcakes and more. Making beautiful cakes is often where art and baking intersect, and it becomes a little unclear whether the maker is a baker, a painter… or both!

And that’s exactly where I find myself when looking at Johnsonville Cakes baked creations. That’s also what makes them one of the best cottage bakeries in Waco, TX.

If you eat with your eyes and your mouth, then you’re certainly in for a treat with the decorative magic that takes place at Johnsonville Cakes in Waco, TX.
