How it all started .......
French Apple Pie
Voted Best Bakery 5 years in a row
I started baking when I was 7 years old. Any chance to bake with Mom and Grandma I could get, I was there, I just love it. Baking allows me to create smiles, from the cooking process, down to the first bite of a Sweet Treat.
The first French Apple Pie I ever made, for commission, was for my neighbor's wife. It's her favorite kind of pie and no one makes them anymore. Jim, my neighbor, asked if I could make one for their anniversary. So I found a recipe in Grandma's Cookbook, and the rest is history.
After that I started selling a variety of my Sweet Treats at the Local Farmer's Market in Tappahannock, VA. Not long after I was approached by the owner of a convenience store. They asked if I could make them some Banana Bread to sell in the store. They loved the Banana Bread and asked if I could make them Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Cookies. The baked goods were selling so well, they decided to add brownies into the mix. The customers went crazy over them! I was delivering orders weekly, and could hardly keep up. After about a year of that and the Farmers Market, I decided that getting my home kitchen state-certified was my next step, and I found a local restaurant to sell my French Apple and Pecan Pies.
Since the start of my Home Bakery, my French Apple pie, and my Banana Bread have won First place at the Warsaw, VA Fair. My pies were flying out the door, and I started taking orders for Specialty Cakes and Cupcakes.
In February 2016, my dream came true, I opened my store front! In the heart of the town of Warsaw, VA at 50 Saint Johns St.
My journey has been long a hard, but I wouldn't have it any other way! As the days have turned into months here at our little bake shop, we have continued to grow with our community! We now serve cheesecakes, loaf size pound cakes, truffles, cookies and breads. New items are coming out of the ovens every day.
Take time to stop by and see what we have. Or just come in for the smell...
Thank you to all of our customers, keep coming to see us!
