Think outside the cake box

my Story

Katie graduated from asu with a degree in musical theatre (jazz hands!) before working at several local coffee shops & bakeries. soon after, she decided Cakes rule and launched sift bakehouse in the heart of Phoenix, arizona. 


katie works with each new client, crafting all her desserts like pieces of art.  she strives to offer her clients desserts as unique and creative as their own wedding stories.

Katie frederick 

Originally hailing from a pig farm in Minnesota, Katie grew up baking with her mom and grandmothers. In fact, her first job in high school was at a grocery store writing ‘Happy Birthday’ on sheet cakes!

Katie is a mom to two chihuahua pups, Olive Garden & Ruby Tuesday that she proudly rescued from the Arizona Animal Welfare League where she volunteers. She holds two gold medals as a part of the Sweet Adelines International Championship Barbershop Chorus, The Scottsdale Chorus. 

Bonus fun fact (as if the above wasn’t a party in itself!) She once ate pizza for 31 days in a row just because it was October…aka National Pizza Month.

Sound like a gal you should meet? Or at least one that should bake you a cake? Agreed.

Let's make it happen.

Designed based on the amount of guests and created to look as good as it tastes!

Girly + Swirly! So many fun design options to give you the self serve option in the same great flavors of a classic cake.

From royal icing to fondant covered, these goodies are fully customizable with practically any shape imaginable!

Not to be confused with "macaroons", these almond-based French meringue cookies will make you say "ooh-la-la!"

Why stop at cake? Give your guests options and create a whole tablescape of yummy goodies!

Aka, the stuff you need to know!

PRICING
The average sift bakehouse bride or groom will spend between $7-10/serving. Keep in mind with just cake, you will only need to order for 80% of your guest count to account for allergies, diets (boo! hehe) or people too busy getting their groove on to eat! Dessert table options can affect this number, depending on how many different types of options you’re wanting to offer. Every celebration is custom, as your quote will be. 

Not a bride? Birthday and other celebration cakes are available as well as ordering any of the dessert options solo. We require a minimum order of one dozen of any type of cupcake, macaron, bar or cookie. These desserts range from $20-$54/dozen pending design intricacy.

DELIVERY
We would love to take care of bringing the goodies to your event, fees range from $25-$75 and include setup.

ORDERING
Recommended time before ordering for small events is at least one month ahead of time and at least six months for weddings. There is always a chance your date is not yet booked, please do not hesitate to inquire!

TASTINGS
Tastings are available for cake orders serving at least 50 guests only. A $50 fee will be assessed, but will be deducted from your grand total should you decide to book.

DIETARY RESTRICTIONS
Sift is not a certified GF, Nut-Free or Vegan kitchen, but offers friendly options! Macarons are always gluten-free, and most cupcake, cake, cookie and bar flavors can be accommodated as gluten and/or dairy-free. Just ask!

PAYMENT
To secure the date and pricing agreed upon at consultation and contract signing, a non-refundable deposit must be made. From then, all orders must be paid in full by two weeks before the event. Any placed in less time must be fully paid on date of order. We accept cash, check, PayPal or Venmo! (We are soooo with the times.)

CONTRACT
A contract will be filled out and needs to be signed and returned to secure event date and pricing. After initial inquiry, a free consultation will occur (and tasting if desired for fee, see above) and the contract will be filled out there. In the event that the client is from out of town, email consultation can occur and a digital copy of the contract will be sent out and should be returned as early as possible (one week at the latest) to reserve the date.

"Katie is a genius and a dream to work with! She came to our house with samples and helped us plan our perfect dessert table. Not only did she make our cake, she also made mini cupcakes and macarons. On the day of, she set up our dessert table using her own cake stands and displays. IT LOOKED PERFECT."

"She worked with me on designs, and patiently explained the intricacies of cake artistry and offered solutions and ideas as we came closer to the final design. Not only is her work stunning, but she has such a bright, friendly personality and she is devoted to her work. I had no doubt things would come out beautifully, and she really outdid herself with our cakes in the end. In addition, she was able to make gluten-dairy free options for some of our friends with dietary restrictions. I could not have asked for a more perfect partner for our big day!

I reviewed Katie's work years ago. She received five stars then and deserves more now. Her cakes and treats have become more incredible since. Masterpieces! She puts such passion, love, and time into everything she bakes. A must hire for any occasion!
