Burg Cookie Co and Maddie’s Cakes have made a splash in the EDGE District of St. Petersburg. The pair of businesses joined forces inside a shipping container at the EDGE Collective earlier in 2021. The minds behind both concept will soon open in the space at 9th Street and 1st Avenue South.
Ashlea O’Connor, owner of Burg Cookie Co, is renowned for her massive deep dish cookies. This blogger also got to experience the gooey greatness of O’Connor’s vegan, gluten-free chocolate chip cookie.

The owner of Maddie’s Cakes has had a passion for baking most of her life.
“My passion for baking was fostered at a small age from my grandmother who taught me how to bake our family recipes, roll my pie crust out (the right way), even how to frost a cake,” writes the bakery owner. “Thankfully, I’m using all the skills she taught me to bring you Maddie’s Cakes.”
Maddie started the business at the outset of the pandemic in 2020. Her confections can now be found at local restaurants, in addition to the shipping container space in the EDGE.
