We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexis Lozoria and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alexis, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
One thing about this industry that a lot of people may not know is that it is very time consuming. It is not something that can be done in minutes, although it also depends on what you are making. You have to bake the products and let them cool before decorating any of it. Making the icing into a perfect consistency takes time because you have to make sure that it isn’t too thick to use, or too thin. One also has to make either custom icing colors or make a lot of them which is also time consuming. Prepping in general takes a lot of time or even days worth of work before actually starting to work on my custom cookie orders and cakes. Sometimes I have people message me asking to get a cake or custom cookies for the next day and unfortunately it is not always doable.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Baking your day offers custom decorated sugar cookies, cakes and bento box cakes. I’ve recently had a high request for bento cakes which are small personalized cakes that include a wooden spoon and candle. These are my favorite to make because they are perfect for gifts. I have received some fun and hilarious requests for designs/messages and I always get excited to make them.

I started my small business in October of 2020 and I never thought that my small business would be where it is today. Ive had alot of trial and error and I am continuing to learn about what it takes to run a small business and about the baked products I make. During the holiday seasons is when I find it difficult to manage my orders but I recently made a website that has helped me a lot as it also allows me to get organized and manage the orders that I receive. I am still learning and I am grateful for the customers who have been with me since the beginning. I’ve had people make 1 hour drives just to get personalized cookies from me and that honestly means the absolute world to me because I know there are a lot of talented bakers around the DFW that one could go to.

I’ve always enjoyed the decorative side of baking since I was a kid. I would bake cakes for family and friends even when they were not the best. I took culinary classes when I was in high school at a Career and Technical Education Center. After high school I decided to go to Culinary School and received my Associates of Science in Pastry Arts. I’ve worked for some pretty amazing small bakeries and would help work Bridal shows in Plano and Dallas. During all of this time period I was always excited to learn and do what I love to do. I want for people to know that I put a lot of love into everything I make. It’s like I get to do the “same” thing all the time but I am able to create something different every day. It makes me so happy to be a part of many celebrations with my baked products.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
What I love about DFW is that there are so many places to go! I would start with The Grandescape, which is a spot in The Colony that offers a variety of restaurants, shops, and even plays live music. This is my favorite place to go if you are looking for something casual to do. My favorite place for dessert at The Grandescape is the Baked Bear for a yummy ice cream sandwhich. (I am a big fan of sweets).

Another one of my favorite places to go to is the At&t district because there is usually some sort of event that is happening on the weekend. I also like being able to The Exchange food hall and being able to have the option to choose from a variety of restaurants and this is great so that everyone can choose their preference in food. I like that the At&t district is a short walking distance to the Pegasus City Brewery for drinks or to shop when they host pop ups.

Bishop Arts district is definitely a favorite because there are numerous places to get something to eat and shop! My favorite little shop to go to is We are 1976 because they sell fun stationery, cards and so much more. Their cards are probably my favorite because they offer a variety of cute and funny ones that make great gifts for any occasion.

Overall Bishop Arts has a lot to offer and is one my favorite spots in Dallas to go to!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate this shoutout to my partner Christian Legorreta. He was one of the few who encouraged me to start Baking your day. He has experience owning a small business with his family in the past, so he has guided me with advice and tools on how to start mine. My cousin, Steffany Lozoria, has also encouraged me to start my small business. Before I started Baking your day, she would offer my services to her coworkers, friends and anybody she would meet and because I was getting a lot more orders for cookies and custom cakes, that is when I finally decided to start Baking your day. I have a lot of friends and family who support what I do but I don’t think I would be where I am today with my small business without these two. You will always see them with me at my pop-ups as they are also the ones who help me set up, organize and sell my products.
