Michelle Lindell, Owner and Head Cake Decorator
I have been decorating edible art for 12 years. I started my journey at Michael’s Art & Crafts taking their cake decorating classes. I also watched a lot of online videos and as well taking culinary classes to push me further into the industry.
When I am not at work, I am with my 5 children and my boyfriend and his 4 children. We have a busy home and work life, which I wouldn’t trade for the world!
Rachael Owens, Owner and Head Baker
I grew up in a big family. My Mother would sign us up for the Farmer’s Market, making cinnamon rolls and Kolaches. Fast forward to my 20’s and I wanted to do something that I liked and I could meet new people. I started baking for the Ankeny’s Farmer’s Market and I did that for 8 years. I always wanted to have my own bakery. One day Michelle and I decided that we should go into business together. I love making breads, pies, and decorating cookies.
In my free time, I am with my Pitbull Lucy and participating in 5k’s, 10k’s and half marathon’s.
