About Me

I am Shelby LeCoq and the owner of Baking on the Bayou here in Ventress, Louisiana. I am a southern girl with a deep love for all things cake ( and food.)  I'm a wife to my high school sweetheart, Dane, and a mom to my baby boy, Archer. I started my career at age seventeen while in high school. After attending The Louisiana Culinary Institute I opened a “made-to-order” shop on the bayou in south Louisiana in November, 2015. Its a spacious 1,000 square foot kitchen equipped with countless pastry tools needed to create amazing cakes. My goal for each cake is to create them with quality and aim for the taste to blow you out of the water (swamp water that is).  I am quite the perfectionist so I can assure you that you will receive a beautiful and artistic masterpiece that is scrumptious as well. My dedication to you starts with your first email to the time you dig in with a fork. I hope you get the chance to try one of my creations and that your experience along the way is “super sweet” and nothing shy of amazing.
