Kiera Confections is an adorable family-owned cupcake bakery in McHenry, IL. It was started in 2010 by Kim Loewe and named after her daughter, Kiera. She is also joined by the help of her mom, Laura.

Together they work to make delicious works of cupcake artistry for weddings, special events and everday in their shop. From their amazing, delicious cupcakes to their fantastic sandwiches and soups everthing is made fresh daily with the best ingredients.

Kim and her family strive to use local vendors, such as Chicago Coffee of Huntley-producers of fine coffees & teas, for all their supplies. They also work hard to find and use products Made in the USA. All their packaging, tables and chairs, and even the flag outside, are all made right here at home.

They find that most rewarding thing about having a few years under their belts, is the strong and lasting relationships they have built with their customers.

"It's really awesome to see people use our services to promote the most joyous occasions of their lives! Some of our customers started out by using us for their wedding shower or engagement party, and have since requested us for their wedding, baby shower, birthdays and more. That's what makes this business worthwhile!"

We met with several bakers in the northern burbs in planning the cake for our wedding. At the last minute we thought about having a tower of cupcakes as an option, too. Of all the bakers, Kim was by far the most adventurous with ideas, and the flavors of her cakes were heads and shoulders above the rest. She made a raspberry chocolate truffle cupcake that blew us away. We also had a red velvet cupcake and a lemon selection, AND she made 100 large wrapped cookies with our wedding logo on it for guests to grab as they left.
Overall, she was more affordable than a traditional wedding cake, with incredible flavors, and a lot of custom touches that really made us feel extra special on our wedding day.

We are so happy that we chose Kiera Confections for our wedding cake. We went the cupcake route and they we delicious. The cupcakes were displayed like a cake with a small cake on the top for cutting. Everyone was talking about how amazing they were and out of 150 cupcakes none were left at the end of the night! They were a huge hit! They even made a special cupcake for my husband, on the side, of a flavor that he wanted but we didn't want included for the guests. Everything was perfect!

We just delivered an assortment of Kiera mini-cupcakes and choc strawberries to some of our customers. Everything was beautiful, nicely packed and I'm still getting thanks from my customers for thanking them! I wanted to deal with a local business for Thanksgiving gifts and this was the perfect choice. Everything was on time, looked wonderful and of course, all had zero calories. Thank you to Kim at Kiera Confection for the dedicated work.

My small intimate wedding (second marriage) was supposed to take place in McHenry, not far from Kiera's shop. We ordered a small wedding cake and cupcakes, which were to be tiered on a three tiered platter we rented from Kiera. Over the course of a few weeks the wedding grew and I had to add the number of cupcakes we needed twice. We also moved the wedding to Zion. Kiera delivered the cupcakes all the way to Zion in perfect condition and for a very nominal fee. They were beautiful, just as we had ordered. She set them up as requested and even left some carry out boxes for guests who wanted to take theirs to go. The cupcakes were moist and delicious. My only small complaint was the price. I believe the cost was $2.25 per cupcake and I ordered 60. It would be awesome if Kiera offered a bulk discount. Nonetheless, they were wonderful and we were very pleased. Kiera is a sweetheart.

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! We used Kiera Confections for our wedding cupcake cake. It turned out so lovely and tasted so delicious! Kim was so great to work with and she set up everything for us and it looked beyond our wildest dreams! The cupcakes tasted even better to me than they did the day of our tasting which I didn't think was possible. You are making the cupcake cakes for 2 of my bridesmaids weddings too and I can't wait to indulge! Thanks so much Kim, everyone loved your cupcakes and I still have people raving about how good our dessert was!

We used Kiera's for our cupcake wedding cake. In our opinion it was the highlight of our reception. Kim customized everything, down to the colors, to our theme. She is extremely friendly and very easy to work with. We started buying her cupcakes since she first opened and they are indescribably delicious and moist and always look forward to going into her shop. She has several wonderful flavors and is coming up with wonderful new creations all of the time. Her prices are very reasonable. She set up everything perfectly at the reception on time and made everything look great. Thanks Kim!!

YUM!!! The taste testing we did had us all wanting more! Sea salt caramel, red velvet, lemon creme, peanut butter cup... you name it and Kim makes it. She did a beautiful job on our cupcake cake - even better, no 'cutting' the cake!! The servers just served it as dessert right after dinner. We got a lot of compliments!
