Great Lakes Bakery


Dear Hungry Readers,

It is my joy to introduce you to a wonderful local shop, the Great Lakes Baking Company. They consistently have the most wonderful breads and sweets around.  (My favorites are the cherry-orange scones.  Oh my!)  Stopping by the store is like visiting a gallery – the sugar cookies and varieties of shortbreads are so lovely to look at…

Today, a quick peek at their Christmas goodies…

Look for an interview with sugar cookie artist extraordinaire, Cam Salsberry, in the new year.  Of course, if you’re local, stop by in person to watch Cam decorate, and taste some goodies!

  1. Hi Heidi, I’ve awarded you the Versatile Blogger award – details on my blog – it’s a thank you for all the support you’ve given me over the past couple of months. But if it’s not your thing (or you’ve already been awarded it) just ignore. Have a great day. Janine.

  2. Wow, they are too cute to eat! I especially love those socks ones. They are all hand drawn (or how to say it…hand decorated??), right ? Must have taken so much time before they are out in the shop…

    • I know Leah! They are almost like sugar art. This bakery has come up with such interesting shortbreads… vanilla lavendar, key lime… It’s very rich, so you can’t just gobble the shortbread down – which is a good thing. They’re to be savored. 🙂
      Thinking of you…

    • So true. I guess it’s a form in which you must really love the process, and hold onto the product (hungrily) and lightly.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I adore the GLBC cookies. Every time I go there with my aunt I get an iced cookie. For those wondering, they are delicious!!!!! Once you take one bite, you can’t help but devour it, no matter how pretty.
