The Frustrated Baker

So, I have an announcement.

Not a big one, more of a medium-sized announcement. It's no big deal, really. It actually makes a lot of sense. It is a natural progression of things, at least in my world, anyway.

Are you ready for this?

Here it is: I am officially catering baked goods for parties and events!

As in real baked goods for real events where real people pay me real money.

For. Reals.

You see, I bake anyway and why not share that love with people who will help share the burden of buying things like butter, sugar, eggs and chocolate? There is a certain harmony to it, don't you think?

Harmony made with butter, baked to perfection and dipped in dark chocolate ganache.

I love that kind of harmony.

And I really love baking. It is my creative outlet, my de-stresser, my go-to activity when I need to feel productive and energized.

(And it is the reason I live on the treadmill.)

(But let's not talk about that right now.)

In the last few weeks, I have had the privilege of catering three parties and I have one more next week. I am not going to lie, it has been a little chaotic, flour has ended up in the strangest of places. But I love making something both delicious and beautiful, helping to enhance celebrations or milestones, while also relieving the host from the stress of baking it themselves.

It's totally a win/win situation.

I am still working on my list of available baked goods, but thus far, it includes:


Pies and Tarts: 

Cakes and Cupcakes:

Bars and Brownies:

Truffles and Treats:

Quick breads, candy and caramel corn are also in the works but the recipes are still being fine-tuned.

So, let me know if you have an event coming up and you need something delectable to share! I'll be happy to discuss menu options and pricing. The Frustrated Baker is nothing if not flexible and delightful.

And I promise I won't stick my finger in your frosting.
