Meet the Bakers
Amy Brace, Owner/Chief Pastry Chef
Baking is my passion! I have been baking my whole life and I just love it. Decorating and making beautiful treats is so rewarding, and seeing the look on people's faces when they taste their treats is the best. Baking, to me, always feels like home. Being in the kitchen making delicious treats for the ones you love and the moments and memories made are for a lifetime.
I have also played and competed in sports all my life: gymnastics for 16 years, diving for five, and dabbled in softball and track and field. Being in sports has honed my ability to multi-task and keeps my perfectionist ways in check, although being a perfectionist is a very good trait to have in the baking industry! I also worked in the medical field doing CT scans for the last 10 years. Being with patients, and making their day better in any way was always my goal. Getting to know the patients on a personal level was so important, and I love being able to have that at the shoppe with our amazing customers too.
Another lifelong passion is our cabin, and we've been going up north for over 30 years. Spending time with friends and family, relaxing on the water or telling stories by the bonfire, surrounded by the gorgeous nature of northern Minnesota is heaven to me.
Since I was a little girl, my mom and I have had a tradition of baking Christmas cookies, and now I am a mother of a beautiful daughter named Caleigh. I keep the tradition going with my daughter and my amazing husband, too.
Having my own bakery storefront has been an aspiration of mine, and I am so excited for all the opportunities coming my way. We now have our beautiful shoppe up and running on Mainstreet in Hopkins, and second location in Southdale Mall in Edina. Come see us for one or a few dozen treats. We'd love to meet you! Thank you for your continued support, and I hope to hear from you soon!
