We make all our cakes from scratch with real ingredients (like butter), lots of love and passion!
We are Mollie & Kelly Fankhauser, former professional golfers, now owners and bakers of Kittie’s Hand Crafted Cakes. While we both spent a lot of time in the kitchen throughout our life, our passion for baking grew on the golf course.
During the 10 years of our professional golf careers, our travels took us all over the world. We always took time to explore the cities we visited, both domestic and international, to experience different and amazing food, hoping to inspire new flavors in our kitchen. We have always been drawn to classic American desserts, so, naturally, we baked cake—lots of cake.
When our professional golf career came to a close in September of 2011, we drove straight from Montgomery, Alabama to Columbus and began perfecting our recipes. Together, we have created new twists on our family favorites. In homage to the ladies who came before us and continue to inspire us every day, we named the shop after Mollie’s mom, Kittie, who has always guided us in the kitchen. On April 5, 2013 we opened Kittie’s on Third Street in historic German Village.
We’ve expanded our menu to include not only our mini cupcakes, but our amazing breakfast baked goods and an assortment of cookie sandwiches. And we’ve paired our sweets with some of the best coffee (Stumptown Coffee Roasters), candy (Liddabit Sweets) and greeting cards (Farewell Paperie).
See you at Kittie’s!
