Written by Featured Organization on 12 March 2012.

Icing on the Kake by Khayla is now providing gourmet cupcakes each and every weekend at the Yellow Green Farmers Market in Hollywood, Florida. Owners Khayla and Ty Stanley started Icing on the Kake by Khayla in January 2011 as a made-to-order, gourmet cupcake and special order cake catering business for parties and events.

Since its inception, Icing on the Kake by Khayla has catered various private parties, provided cakes for a local restaurant and catered events for various for-profit and not-for-profit organizations.
