Our Story

This is our story and we’re sticking to it.

Miss. Vicky’s recipe has been a family secret for over 40 years.

Vicky was born in Cleveland, MS and later moved to Gary, IN, and had 4 children.
One day Vicky got in the kitchen and pulled out some simple ingredients to make pancakes for her kids. And, that’s when her famous recipe for “Vicky Cakes” was born!
Word spread around town and soon family and friends couldn’t resist her light and fluffy pancakes.

It happened in the kitchen on Thanksgiving morning in 2013.

Vicky youngest daughter Christian got married in 2009 and started a new life with her husband Cortney in Mississippi. After a few years, they went back to visit mamma Vicky.

On Thanksgiving morning of 2013, she cooked up her famous pancakes. Cortney immediately fell in love with the pancakes–suggesting they start a business and call them “vickycakes” instead of “pancakes”.

His words exactly were: “These are the BEST pancakes I’ve ever had”.

Six years later, Christian and Cortney made “Vicky Cakes” a reality.

After six years of watching Shark Tank and being inspired by all of the small family businesses that make it big, Christian finally decided to create a success story of her own. Cortney’s years of nagging her finally paid off 🤣 .

The power couple officially launched Vicky Cakes on Mother’s Day of 2019 as a historical gesture to honor Vicky for her sacrifice as a mother. And, the company quickly took off.
