Hi, I'm Whitney Leighton

I am owner of Little Blackbird Bakery. I have been baking since I was little girl with my mom, aunts, and grandmothers. We always made everything together from scratch from our cookies to our pies. I've always loved sweets since I can remember and the happiness they brought to those around me. I decided I was going to start a bakery business but I had no idea where to even start.
