New website in the works!

Hey all you faithful followers! I have been super busy unleashing AmandaBakes all around the Northwest Corner of Connecticut this summer and into the fall. Also, my faithful web designer Harmony and I have been dreaming up a fun new website.  I will be keeping the address, but the blog format will change. Sad part is, I can’t take my followers with me. So, if you like following AmandaBakes- when I say “when”- please follow me over to the new format. The website goes live very soon- I’ll keep you posted!

I will leave you with a photo from last weekend’s Morris Marketplace.

Farmer’s Markets…all summer long!

I haven’t blogged in a while, I’ve been busy growing this business of mine! Next up? A real website! Most Saturday mornings you can find me at the Norfolk, CT Town Hall on Maple Avenue. It’s a bit of a haul from home base, but the atmosphere and the people can’t be beat. It’s a laid-back, go barefoot and bring the pooch kind of affair.

Here are some highlights of this summer’s markets so far. It is bittersweet as Labor Day looms: Excited for baking up the abundance of the Fall harvest, but sad to see the lazy, warm days of Summer slip away. Apple pie is on the horizon!





Stump Cake

The order: A Retirement cake for the long serving conservationist, naturalist and educator at a local conservation center.


Chocolate cake, peanut butter mousse, peanut butter buttercream. Milk and dark chocolate “bark”, with meringue mushrooms. 

Thanks for the design inspiration goes to Elizabeth at SugarHero!
