I knew Lauren was the perfect fit for the bakery the minute she came in for her interview. With her bright smile and very enthusiastic attitude she “wowed” us all instantly. She is a talented baker who is very creative and lots of fun to have around. Along with working production, she helps me with mostly everything that goes on the bakery.

What fascinates me the most is that even on a hectic Saturday, when we are baking all day long, she always manages to look so stylish and neat. (I could probably use a few pointers on that topic!J)

    Lauren is too cool! I have come to admire not only her cookie work but jewelry design as well! So fun to get to know her a bit better!
