Any cake, any color, any flavor, any shape or design, that is what 19-year-old Alexandra Stoddard of Paulden can and will do for you. Alexandra has loved to cook and bake since she was a little girl, and has been creating beautiful cakes for the past four years.

"My mother has taught me a lot, like good kitchen habits of cleaning as I go, and how to shop efficiently," said Alexandra.

Alexandra is attending nursing school at Yavapai College, with an eye to the future.

"I'm getting into nursing so that down the road I will be financially able to have my own bakery," she explained.

Besides going to college, Alexandra stays busy with orders for her great-tasting cakes.

"I make all kinds of cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, cheesecakes, and pies. Just about anything people want, I can do. I've already booked some cakes for birthdays, a baby shower and a wedding," Alexandra said.

Alexandra uses her own special recipe for cake mixes, and makes all her frostings from scratch.

"My favorite is to do elegant and several tiered cakes. For very detailed multi-tired cakes it takes at least 12 hours for me to complete. Any leftover batter I might have, I make cupcakes and donate them to the new Overflow coffee shop in town," said Alexandra.

Happily, Alexandra said, she's never had a "cake catastrophe."

She's a very active young woman. Along with college classes, she teaches Sunday School, enjoys outdoor sports, and has even taught a basic cake baking and decorating class to some little girls who are interested in baking, too.

"Creating these cakes makes me very happy to be able to contribute to the joyous times in other peoples lives," Alexandra said.

On March 3, Alexandra will feature her wedding cakes at the 2013 "Bridal Affaire" at the Hassayampa Inn. She can be reached at 928-925-9751 or visit her website
