I opened my bakery in June of 2020 at the start of the Pandemic. It was definitely scary with everything going on in the world, but it has turned out to be so amazing thanks to my awesome customers! I previously worked from home with my cottage food license and as my business grew, I knew it was time to find my own space.

Most of my recipes are family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation which is really special. Everything on my menu is homemade and prepared fresh daily.

There are so many delicious flavors to choose from but my favorite has to be the salted caramel, which is a vanilla cake filled with homemade creamy caramel sauce and topped with a light brown sugar frosting and salt flakes.

What is my relationship to the featured wedding vendors? I am always transparent with my audience. These vendors were hand selected by me to feature in this post. They were each charged a small fee to cover my time in creating their feature as this provides a means for me to earn an income. I reached out to them and offered the opportunity, they did not seek me out looking to advertise. I only feature venues and vendors I truly think are great!
