About Me

Sarah Lowitzer -

Cottage Bakery offering custom order gourmet cupcakes and bespoke

buttercream cakes for all occasions!


The sweet smell of buttercream frosting, strawberry cakes, and chocolate sauce are an everyday scent pouring from the kitchen at Scratch By Sarah.

Three years ago, Sarah was convinced that everyone knew how to make delicious cakes and cupcakes. She grew up in a house where everyone was a fantastic cook and baker and she thought it was normal that everyone made cakes as wonderful as her family. It wasn’t until people started asking her personally to make cakes for their events and then the overwhelmingly positive feedback she got about how delicious her creations were that she realized she could actually make a business out of doing what she loved - making cakes and cupcakes.

“I love everything about my business! To be able to have creative freedom and even delivering my orders and seeing the huge smiles on my customers' faces. Especially my younger customers, seeing a child’s face light up is the best feeling ever!  When I was creating my business model, I decided that titling Scratch as a “bakery and cupcakery” best suited my overall offerings. While the cupcake is definitely my specialty, I also make custom bespoke buttercream cakes. Everything I make is from scratch. No shortcuts, no artificial flavorings, and all completely custom made to order. I have no set menu.  The creativity door is wide open for them, and for me. For that, I am the proudest.”

Not only can Sarah make you amazing sweets, but she uses fresh, quality ingredients and no artificial flavorings. You can be sure there’s no added chemical or fake flavoring coming from Sarah‘s kitchen.

Sarah is no stranger to big events either. She may be a business of one, but she can handle any kind of event, wedding and office party. Maybe you just need a dozen cupcakes for a girl’s night out? She’s got you covered in that department as well and will make your girls get together a sweet one to remember. No matter the task, Sarah has the determination and the love of baking to get the job done.

What does Sarah feel is essential to success?  “For me, staying true to my morals and standards is most important for my success. Often as businesses grow, in any industry, volume goes up and quality goes down. For me, there’s nothing more important than maintaining the quality my customers have come to expect. You can’t get the best results without using the best ingredients and putting the time and effort into each order that it deserves.”

So, the next time you need a sweet treat for your event, remember to shop local and support a small business owner and her dream.
