It's all about the little things...

 The Little Things Bakery

I hope you find, as I did, that happiness and wonder comes from noticing and enjoying the little things in life.

We here at The Little Things Bakery look forward to adding some sweetness to your events. Whether you are celebrating a birthday, wedding, anniversary, a celebration of life, or the fact that it is Tuesday! We have you covered. 

Sometimes it's the little things in life that mean the most.

Our History

The Little Things Bakery is committed to providing our customers with fantastic cakes and desserts made with fresh, high quality ingredients.

Leah Hodson is the owner of The Little Things Bakery. She graduated from the Oregon Coast Culinary Institute in 2012. From there, she moved to Santa Barbara where she worked at Your Cake Baker and trained under Wayne Kjar, son of local legend, Henning Kjar.


Henning's Wedding Cake Boutique was owned by the Kjar family from 1970 through early 2005. If you got married during that time period in Santa Barbara there is a high chance you had a Henning's cake.  His son, Wayne, sold Henning's Wedding Cake Boutique and then ended up opening his own bakery called Your Cake Baker, here on the Mesa.  


The Little Things Bakery opened their doors in 2019 in the same location where Wayne had run Your Cake Baker for many years.  All the classic recipes that Henning and Wayne used for their cakes and buttercreams have now been passed down to The Little Things Bakery where we continue their legacy and continue to make their delicious cakes.
