“I don't have kids, so this here is my baby,” says Lauren. “This bakery is really personal to me, and I put all my love into everything I bake.” Her steadily booked calendar is proof of that. While the shop isn’t open to the public on a daily basis at the moment, follow her social media feeds for a potential reopening after Easter this April (2023). When people come looking for pastries and croissants, she happily refers them to places downtown like Wagner’s Bakery, The Bread Peddler, Left Bank, and San Francisco Street Bakery, but if they want a bad-ass specialty cake, she’s their girl.
Thinking of booking her for a specialty cake, wedding cake, or birthday celebration complete with cupcakes and cookies? Lauren is a one-woman show right now, so the best way to reach out to her about commissioning a cake is to call or text her. Head to her website first to get valuable information about her pricing structure and you’ll be ahead of the game.
“I have no idea what’s in store for me but I’m just keeping my focus on evolving as I go,” Lauren says. Not everybody in life gets to make a career out of what they’re passionate about. She may be burning the candle at both ends but she gets to be creative and spend every waking minute building edible masterpieces. Nice work if you can get it.
