3 Kids & a Cake – Owasso
After working in the medical field for 20 years, the pandemic brought about life and priority changes for Anna Richardson of Owasso. She decided to make a career change, a leap into something she had always loved—baking.
In October 2022, she opened 3 Kids & a Cake in Owasso, in partnership with The Eatery by 3 Kids & a Cake in Bartlesville.
“Annie Saltsman started 3 Kids & a Cake out of her home right here in Owasso,” Richardson says. “I met her after someone referred me to her to order cookies for a bridal shower I was throwing.”
The women discovered they were neighbors and have been friends ever since.
“I’ve been a huge supporter of her drive and talents, both as a business owner and in her personal life,” Richardson says. “I’m so grateful for my friendship and now partnership with Annie and so excited to bring her amazing recipes to Owasso.”
Those recipes include soft, scrumptious cookies; grab-n-go cakes; cinnamon rolls; scones; ooey gooey bars; lemon lavender croissants; filled croissants in ham and cheese, almond, and chocolate; cupcakes; cake balls; frosted sugar cookies; frosted brownies; muffins; Rice Krispies treats; Chex mix; house-made granola; puppy chow; cheesecake; seasonal cakes; and quiche. There is always one gluten free cookie in store daily with several additional gluten free options offered.
Cookie decorating classes will soon be available as well.
Growing up in Ponca City, Richardson learned to bake with her elderly neighbors. “I’ve always loved it! The amount of creativity and preciseness that goes into a pastry or cake or cheesecake, etc., then watching how happy people are when they enjoy that really fills my cup,” she says.
Richardson and her husband have a 16-year-old son and a 3-year-old daughter. “She is definitely a bakery girl and loves to tell customers what they need to buy,” Richardson shares.
The Richardsons are excited to bring 3 Kids & a Cake to the community they love.
“We love how diverse Owasso is becoming and being involved in the local happenings,” Richardson says. “Our son played baseball for many years but is now on the tennis team at the high school. We were very active in school happenings at Bailey Elementary and his sports. I’m on the Tennis Booster Club and love being involved with people in the community. Coming from a small town, with parents who owned their own businesses, it’s second nature for us to be involved in the community. I love that I’m helping cultivate an atmosphere where people can come and sit and engage in conversation and community.
“I really want this bakery to be a great staple in the community, a place where people can come and feel at home and comfortable to come in and grab a cup of coffee and a treat and enjoy great conversation or a good book,” Richardson says.
“I love to give my time and energy to bettering things, people, places, etc., and I look forward to being able to partner with others in the community.”
