Ginger Bean Bakery

The Bailey Bakery

The Simple Truth...

How did "Simply Sweet" come to be?  Well, it all started  in the spring of 2011 when our oldest daughter Malea decided that she would like to join her 8th grade class on a school-sponsored trip.  They were planning on visiting Washington, DC.  Her dad and I supported her wish, telling her that she would have to help raise money to cover the cost of the trip.  What could she possibly do?  Babysit?  Lemonade stand?  Ah-ha!  There was one thing that we had some experience with.....baking cookies!  And so it happened.  We baked thousands of cookies of many varieties over an 8 month period.  She earned the money she needed, and I remembered just how much I loved to bake.  Along the way, so many of our wonderful customers would ask, "when are you going to open your bakery?"  And so the wheels began to turn, one thing led to another, and here we are. 


We sincerely hope that you will enjoy our baked treats just as much as we enjoy baking them for you!
