    On Etsy since 2012

    I'm a baker, blogger & crafter.

    ***the baker***
    I am a graduate from The International Culinary Center, formerly The French Culinary Institute, in New York City, NY. My background is in Classic Pastry Arts. I fell in love with cake decorating after a course & internship with one of New York's most renowned cake designers which lead me to start my own little business. I then created DOUGH & BATTER in January 2010. To view my portfolio, inquires & FAQs, please visit my website.

    ***the blogger***
    Friends & family were always curious as to what I baked on a regular basis. And since social media was a way to communicate to a lot of people I started blogging in 2011. My blog features what I make at home for personal consumption and special orders. I love sharing recipes and tips. Please visit my blog to see the latest treats baking in my kitchen.

    ***the crafter***
    The Birthday Buddy inspired me to create my Etsy shop. I found myself struggling to find a unique kid's gift when most kids already have everything. I made and gave my first buddy away over 2 years ago and continue to give them away to all the littles in my life.

    The faux baked goods are a nod to the "real" baked goods I bake in my kitchen. I designed and made them way before I saw them on Etsy and it seems like I'm not the only one enamored with felt food. Each set is hand-sticthed by me. Their "ingredients" are simple. 100% Eco-fi felt, poly fiber fill, and cotton embroidery thread.

    Welcome to DOUGH & BATTER's Etsy Shop!!!
    I bake edible cookies and cakes by day and make faux ones at night.

    I am the founder and pastry artist behind DOUGH & BATTER. I am a graduate from The International Culinary Center, formerly The French Culinary Institute, in New York City, NY. My background is in Classic Pastry Arts. I have very little professional training but I am always experimenting with different techniques and developing new ones. I bake only with the highest quality of ingredients.

    I don't know how to sew on a machine, but I can sew a mean running stitch by hand. I personally created the design for the Birthday Buddies and when you customize one, no two will be alike.

    Visit my website, blog and Facebook page for other sweet ideas.....

    Accepted payment methods

    Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
    Returns and exchanges
    Birthday Buddies are FINAL SALES and sorry food cannot be returned.

    If you're unhappy with my faux baked goods, I will gladly exchange them to put a smile back on your face. :) If that doesn't work, refunds are available. The buyer is responsible for return shipping charges. Returns will be accepted within 10 days from receipt. A refund will be issued once items are confirmed to be in their original condition.
    I accept PayPal & credit cards via direct checkout.
    D&B faux baked goods are boxed & bowed & ready for gift giving. I safely wrap your boxed goods with bubble or cardboard in hopes that it doesn't gets squished in transit.

    D&B "real" baked goods are individually bagged, heat sealed & bowed to ensure freshness 3 - 5 days after date of purchase, excluding Sundays. I bake & decorate to order & ship USPS Priority Mail which generally takes 3 - 5 days (however not guaranteed) if you live in the U.S.A. Sorry, I cannot take any international orders. Individual cookies are packed with lots of love & care and I always include a few extra in case some break during shipping. Think of them being bonus tasting samples.

    If you are ordering for a specific date, please convo me at least 2 - 4 weeks in advance. If you need them sooner, please contact me for availability.

    All orders shipped via USPS will have insurance up to $50 plus delivery confirmation. If your order exceeds $50 and want additional insurance, convo me.
    Additional policies and FAQs
    Due to the attention to detail on custom Birthday Buddy orders, convo me ahead of time so that we can discuss colors so that you're not totally surprised or disappointed.
