Company: The Baker’s Boutique Cakes and Cupcakes
Name: Callie Ash
When did you start your business? 2013
How did you start your business? I went to culinary school to be a better cook for my family. I discovered that I had a talent for making gourmet desserts so I got a job as a pastry chef and baker. After a few years I opened a baking supply company and cupcake bakery. People loved my gourmet cupcakes so much that they begged me to make custom cakes which has become one of the most popular items we sell.
What do you love about weddings? We love hearing back from the brides and grooms that was the best cake they have ever had in their lives! Also, they get so many compliments from their wedding guests.
What is the most rewarding part of your job? Knowing that our clients are receiving the best quality product in the valley. We use real vanilla extracts and creamy butter. Never imitation vanilla or shortening.
What is the most challenging part of your job? I think transporting wedding cakes can be the most nerve racking thing out there. Especially when you have worked for sometimes hours to days on a beautiful creation . You always have to drive like a grandma and hope no one hits you!
I also like the challenge of trying a new technique that I’ve never tried before. It can be scary but somehow it always works out beautifully.
What do you want brides/grooms to know about you/your company? The Baker’s Boutique Cakes and Cupcakes is a gourmet cake and cupcake bakery. We also do beautiful dessert bars, pies, cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, scones, and anything from gluten free to allergy sensitive clients.
