The Pittsburgh MOB Directory is an ongoing effort to collect information on all of the mom-owned businesses in the city.  It is my hope that this project will inspire us all to support the hard work of fellow Pittsburgh mothers!

If you are a Pittsburgh mother and would like to enter your own business, please click “Submit a Listing” below.  Note, your listing will need to be approved by an administrator before it will appear in full.

If you are looking for a product or service offered by a Pittsburgh mother, you have several choices.  You can click “View Listings” to get the complete listing of ALL Pittsburgh mom-owned businesses I have collected so far.  You can also click “Directory” to view listings by category.  Or you can input a search term to find something more specific.

I'm a working from home mama serving up the best homemade icings, cakes and sweets to the greater Pittsburgh area. Most of my goodies are full of fat and sugar- just the way we like them, right? I am slowly piecing together gluten free and vegan options so please get ahold of me and we can work together to satisfy any sweet tooth!

How much?

I'm totally a mind reader, right?

Well some things need to be easy, so let me save you a few e-mails, phone calls, and texts.... Here ya go!

( Go hug your babies with all this extra time you have!!!!)


First of all I charge for delivery. I charge exactly what it costs me in gas, plus the IRS standard rate for 2013 of $0.565/mile for mileage reimbursement. I use Mapquest to figure out all charges. It does the math for my specific vehicle, pretty neat stuff!

As for cakes. I have a size chart I can send to you. Just ask.

Cupcakes are $2.00 each for 1 Dozen,
$1.75 each for TWO or more dozen.
Cakes are priced by servings. $1.75 per serving. ( ask for the chart )

My cakes are double stacked, so you will have a layer of icing/frosting/filling in between two cake layers. Which usually makes the cakes around 4'' high.

I accept cash and money orders made out to Chelsea Stone. No checks please!

For orders over $60.00 I require a deposit. (50 percent of the total and I must receive them 7 days before the date the order is due.)

I also am willing to barter. Just mention it and we can discuss this further.

I make all of my icings, I use swiss buttercream as a base for all buttercreams.

I make fondant, royal icing, and any other decorating edibles myself.

I have a very long list of flavors I can send you, but basically...

Yes, I can make it.

I also have no problem creating a custom flavor. If you or the guest of honor has a favorite cookie, flavor combination, or candy let me know and I can come up with something yummy for you!

If there are any allergy concerns please make them known WHEN ORDERING.

What I need from you.

Your first and last name.
Your address
your phone number
your email address
Theme of party, occasion.
Quantity of servings needed (how many guests will you be having)
Flavor choice(s)
Date goodies are due
Time goodies are needed
Pick up or Delivery
Delivery address, contact information, directions, etc.
Any decoration requests-specifics (Colors, styles, inspiration pictures, etc. )
FOR CAKES- I'll need to know your size and shape choices. Please chose from the chart I send you.

Thanks for checking me out, hope to meet you soon!!!
