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!
