Our Story

Growing up, I would spend a lot of time in the kitchen with my mom. I always loved cooking and baking. But I never (ever) would have thought I would open a bakery. So much precision, time, and patience. Which is why I decided to open one that was the opposite. No more "baking is a science." Baking is an art. We are artists.

After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, I tried to work for the "Big Man," but it wasn't for me. I was going to pursue a master degree, but decided to follow my dreams instead and open a place of my own. With my family helping along the way, this dream became a reality. 

Manifesto

We believe, as close as things may come, nothing is perfect. Which is why we are “The Perfectly Imperfect Bakery.” We don’t aim to be perfect because there is no one definition of what that is. We come as we are, and believe you should too! Be perfectly imperfect with us!

 

To be “Perfectly Imperfect”

(1) Understand nothing is perfect.

(2) Understand that imperfections are what makes the world so beautiful. Think about snowflakes; each are different (imperfect) yet are all still beautiful.

(3) Accept numbers 1 & 2.

(4) Congratulations! You are now Perfectly Imperfect!

What We're About

Buddin’ Bakery was founded in 2020 after the owner lost her job due to COVID-19.

With the help of her family, she launched the bakery with a mission to provide baked goods that are good for you.

Yes, we use sugar too, but we don’t believe a treat has to be saturated in it!

We use fresh, local if possible, ingredients to bring you wholesome baked goods.
