our Story

Hey, there! I am Nicole and my hubby is JD. That’s our goofy little slideshow down there.

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago... I decided that it was time to pursue a career that made me happy. I dreamed of finding a career that I enjoyed while doing something that I loved. When I decorated my first cake back in 2010, I instantly became obsessed!

I started out baking and decorating from my home almost as soon as the bug hit me. I watched YouTube and took classes. I bought endless instructional videos and spent years finding my niche. We finally had the chance to open up our little shop in 2016, which has changed our life beyond our expectations.

He’s called me HoneyLove for years. It was the perfect namesake.

My biggest support has been my husband, who has been my muse for nearly 20 years. He grew up here in Hurst, graduated from L.D.Bell, and most of our family still lives right down the road from the bakery. So, when we found this location, you can imagine how thrilled we were to set up in our family’s home town!

Now that we're empty nesters, we spend most of our time either at the bakery or hanging out with our dogs in our favorite place - our own backyard. You can usually find us baking together in the wee hours of the morning up at the shop.

HoneyLove is everything to us. We carry out every project professionally and honestly whether we're baking your cookies or designing your wedding cakes, and it's important to us that you have the best experience when planning for your special event; big or small. You can be confident in knowing that we will go to great lengths to be sure that your order is just right.

Thank you for taking a look around! Be sure to take a look at our menus, join the conversation on Facebook, check out some behind the scenes pictures on Instagram, and even join the HLC mailing list. I always look forward to a new adventure and I'd love to talk to you about your upcoming event!
