The Kilted Cake was founded in November 2012 by owners Josh & Vanessa Holtkamp. Vanessa has been a longtime baker of cakes, cookies, and all things sweet, but decided to take things to the next level when she began working at Pila's Pantry, our former store. After working for Pila's for several years, Vanessa and her husband Josh realized a passion and joy working in this industry and took the plunge in purchasing the shop. And so, The Kilted Cake was born!
Maintaining a great relationship with the previous owners Pila’s Pantry (who maintain a store location in Norco, CA), we are dedicated to serving the Temecula, Murrieta, and surrounding areas. We are proud to continue our tradition of quality products, friendly service, and decorating classes. We offer a variety of decorating products for cakes, cupcakes, cookies and candies in addition to creating custom cakes for all occasions and offering decorating classes. Not only do we wish to inspire our community to follow their confectionery passions, we are committed to giving back to our community through charities, fundraisers, and other special events.

Josh and Vanessa have been married nine years. Josh is a true Southern California lad, having been born and raised here all his life, while Vanessa originally hails from Indiana. When they're not busy taking care of their son and daughter, or working away at the shop, you can usually find the Holtkamp clan spending time with their church, family, and Renaissance Faire groups!
