Note: East Side Cakes is closed for business.

Thank you all for your support and for following along as I ran this little baking business! East Side Cakes is now closed as a formal business.

I have had a great time testing my skills and abilities by seeing how far I could take a home bakery. I reached a point by the end of 2023 where I could continue balancing a busy baking schedule with working full-time, or I could go all-in on baking. Neither of those options felt right for me, so I decided to go with a third option: to close the book on this chapter.

The best part of running East Side Cakes has been meeting you all -- whether you've been a regular customer at markets, whether we've been vendors together celebrating on a successful day or commiserating at a slow market, or whether you found my website and reached out to get desserts for a celebration. I hope you'll continue to support the local, small businesses that are out there doing great work and keeping us fed with delicious food đź’™

Over the last three years, I've made almost 4,000 (!) cupcakes for you all -- not to mention all the cookies, bars, sweet breads, and cakes we enjoyed along the way.

And for my Eastmorland neighbors: I will still be at the Eastmorland Outdoor Markets with desserts. I can't entirely give up baking, that's for sure.

Thank you, all --
