Barbara Bakes Redesign

Barbara Bakes has a brand new, sleeker, faster, better looking design!

Lindsay, Purr Design, is the talented designer who took my vision of what I wanted for Barbara Bakes and made it a reality. She gave my Barbara Bakes logo a fresh, fun update, but used similar colors on the page so my readers would still feel at home when you drop by for a visit.

More and more of you are visiting Barbara Bakes on your mobile devices, and the old design could take some time to load on mobile. Which was frustrating if you’re at the store looking up what ingredients you needed to buy for a recipe. Now, Barbara Bakes will load quickly on your mobile devices too!
