Our Story

Established in 2008, Moonlight Cakes began as one woman's love for baking. Over years, with determination, commitment to customers and a true passion for baking, it has evolved into a full time business for creator and owner, Susan Holcomb.

In December 2015, Susan retired from a lifelong profession in the medical field to open Moonlight Cakes. Over the past few years, her daughter, Whitney Crawford, has joined her in creating delicious and beautiful cakes. Whitney resigned from 9 years of teaching to devote her time to Moonlight Cakes. Together they have developed a strong customer following by creating the most delicious, moist cakes and cupcakes in the area.

Moonlight Cakes is proud to be a volunteer vendor for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Best of Big Taste of Fort Worth for the past few years. In 2015, they were awarded "Best Dessert" and in 2016, Moonlight Cakes tied for top honors by taking home the award for "Best of Big Taste of Fort Worth".

Due to customer requests and numerous inquiries, Susan and Whitney decided to make their cupcakes available to you on a daily basis. They have partnered together to open a gourmet cupcake and ice cream shop.

We are proud to introduce you to, Moonlight Cakes retail store!

Our Team

Susan Holcomb

Owner/Founder

I developed a love for baking at a young age. My grandmother taught me to always bake with love. After many years of baking for my friends and family, I decided to turn my passion for baking into a career. Creating and developing a new business has allowed me to express myself in a creative and artistic manner, as well as hone my skills by designing custom cakes and creating new recipes. Moonlight Cakes is not a “high volume” business, by design. We remain small so we are able to give each of our customers the personal attention they deserve.

Whitney Crawford

Owner

I am very blessed to be working so closely with one of my best friends, my mom. She has truly taught me everything there is to know and learn about baking and decorating. I began this journey just by watching my mother perfect her craft over the years and then slowly began creating my own cakes for friends and family. I have truly developed a love for creating cakes that make people happy. The best reward is getting to see the smile on a customers face when their vision has become their reality.

Manuela Rodriguez

I am a certified Wilton cake decorator and I love to bake for my friends and family. When I am not baking, you can find me either working on different make up techniques or relaxing on the couch and watching Netflix.

Cheyann Flores

I am 20 years old and have a passion for photography. You will usually catch me singing and dancing around the store while I work because it makes people smile and I enjoy being a part of creating memories that will last forever for our customers.

Molly Rippy

I am a proud momma and wife. When I am not decorating cupcakes, I enjoy reading mystery and thriller novels. In fact, my favorite author is Stephen King. I may like scary books, but I love making our customers smile.
