THE STAFF

Kevin Cunningham- Chef/Owner

“I started baking with my Mom when I was just a little kid.  I found my love of baking and  creating with her guidance and expertise.  She always made a ton of cheesecakes and cookies for the neighborhood and our church and everyone loved them!  I inherited from her, my love of baking for others.  My family owned deli’s and bakeries which I worked at as a teenager.  I learned from my Dad not to cut corners when it comes to quality and service.

I attended culinary school at Schoolcraft College in Michigan in 1985.  I then worked in several restaurants, hotels and country clubs creating menus, launching new concepts and developing my skills.

I created a line of granola, Pure Blend Granola, in 2011 that is gluten free , packed with healthy antioxidants and tastes good!  It is full of good things such as chia, flax and black sesame seeds, chocolate nibs, certified gluten free whole grain oats, and a blend of extra virgin olive oil & rice oil.  It is low in sodium and sugar!  We are in several grocery and health food stores, and it is also is available at the bakery!

I decided to expand and open the bakery in 2015 to get back into the pastries I love to create.  I have been baking my whole life and opening a bakery that makes the freshest baked goods with the best ingredients made sense!  I pride myself on the best customer service and products!  I hope you will stop in and see us”

 

 

Nicole Burton- Pasty Chef/Cake Decorator

“I started college right after high school and chose to go to pastry school thinking I wanted to work in a casino or hotel.  In college, I decided I loved cake decorating and that’s all I focused on.  I went to the Culinary Institute of Michigan and graduated with my Associates in Baking and Pastry Arts in 2012.
I did my internship working with chocolate and candy on Mackinac Island at Joann’s Fudge Shop. I worked at Oliver T’s in Grand Blanc, Michigan, for 5 years, baking and decorating cakes and teaching cake decorating classes, and eventually became a manager.

I have a passion for baking and especially in designing custom cakes and wedding cakes!  I would love to design your dream cake!”
