precious today. priceless tomorrow
A moment in time is captured on film and in pictures; but nothing stops time like a bronzed keepsake of a baby’s hand and footprint or a child’s first pair of walking shoes.
Patty-Cakes® International has been creating bronzed heirlooms and family traditions since 1946. Originally based in Denver, Colorado, the 76-year-old company spent 32 of those years as a staple business in Montgomery, Alabama. Current owner and Huntsville native Jill Burton bought the business in 2016 and in 2019, the business was relocated to North Alabama.
When Jill heard the business was available for sale in 2016, she knew she had to purchase it. Patty-Cakes had hung in her childhood home and were some of her mom’s most prized keepsakes. Those same Patty-Cakes now hang in Jill’s home along with the Patty-Cakes of her two sons. She knew that every family needed these in their home and felt she could work to make Patty-Cakes a household name again.
Each item Patty-Cakes makes is handcrafted in a patented 27-step process. Jill explains: “There is no mass production in anything we do. Each piece is a work of art just like the children they are made for.” There are several mounting options in different price ranges along with gift certificates for that last minute gift. And each item has a lifetime guarantee.
The resurgent popularity of bronzing has led to the expansion of the items Patty-Cakes offers. Once only made for babies and small children, they now offer something for everyone in the family including pets (Patty-Paws). The ideas are endless, and Jill routinely works with families to do custom pieces as well.
Patty-Cakes are ideal for capturing every milestone in your family’s life. They make the perfect Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparents Day, or Baby Shower hostess gift and will be treasured for a lifetime. As their tagline says, they are precious today…priceless tomorrow.
There are several ways to capture your impressions by using their at-home impression kit with step-by-step instructions or you can schedule an appointment with one of the many Patty-Cakes reps around the US. Their kits can also be shipped to anyone in the world.
At Patty-Cakes they are there to help you every step of the way and look forward to having you join the Patty-Cakes family. To start your own Patty-Cakes tradition, visit patty-cakes.com or email Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
