How It All Started

Kids’ Cake Boxes was created to capture childhood moments, spending time together bonding. Because baking is bonding.


Karen Hetz, Chief Happiness Officer, Mom, MS RD

A mom of three and a military spouse, Karen founded Kids’ Cake Boxes in 2020. First and foresmost a mom, Karen dedicates her time to her children and family at home where they enjoy hiking, building, exploring, and, of course, baking together. Moving the family frequently during her husband’s time in the Army, Karen is devoted to sticking together and staying connected with loved ones far away. She is also a registered dietitian, having received her MS in Nutritional Science, and focuses her continued learning and client teaching on how to feed healthy, young children.

Childhood is Fleeting

As a military family, duty required that my husband spend cumulative years away from our growing children. He missed so many moments with our kids, while I missed memory-making opportunities as I worked to keep my head above water, managing our little ones alone. This experience deepened my passion for spending quality family time together whenever possible and drove my dedication to bring that to others, because childhood is fleeting and being present with one another now is one of the greatest gifts we can give. And, so, Kids’ Cake Boxes was created – to encourage families to capture childhood moments and bond with one another. And our kits make it so easy for you to bond and bake sweet memories.


A Memorable Experience

Kids’ Cake Boxes is about connecting, reconnecting, and love. Each kit is an opportunity to shut down the screens and come together in the heart of the home to simply be present with one another. Baking, and the warm feelings it creates, spans generations connecting families as recipes are passed down and memories are made. We truly believe that baking together is one of the simplest, yet happiest childhood memories you can create and we’re here to help make it happen. We’re not just another plastic toy, but a gift that teaches, encourages, and inspires bakers of all ages.
