About Lil’ Mama’s Kitchen
Heather, a.k.a Lil’ Mama (owner)
I’m Heather aka Lil’ Mama and I am originally from a small town south of Boston, Massachusetts. I moved to Austin in January 1999. I have my Associates of Applied Science from Austin Community College’s Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts programs. I graduated in May 2002. I received my Bachelors of Science from the University of Houston – Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management in May 2005. In May 2008 I received my Masters in Hospitality Administration from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I was an Assistant Professor at ACC in the Hospitality Management program from September 2006 to May 2011, then I decided it was time to follow my true passion, to become an entrepreneur.
What does all this mean, to some nothing but to me, my heart’s desire, baking. I have worked for Texas French Bread here in Austin as a cake decorator and a baker, Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida as a hostess, line cook and baker, and a few premiere catering companies in Austin and Houston. I have been baking since I was 13 years old. I prefer white cake with white icing over any other food.
