“We are ready to take your custom order for brownies, cookies, cupcakes, cakes, bars, scones, muffins, cinnamon rolls, whoopie pies…you name it!” write owners Brittany and Travis. “We love the basics but also delight in a challenge, so tell us what you have in mind.”

A Friend Who Bakes can make vegan and gluten-free goodies for custom orders, too, so all customers can be accommodated. A Friend Who Bakes is located at 2901 Beach Boulevard South. The grand opening celebration is planned for November 12.

Sunday morning update…made desserts for a very special wedding last night. My buns are tired, so I am sleeping in a little bit. 😴😬 Cinnamon rolls will be ready at about 8am.
