In 2012, I made over 48,000 pieces of sweet goodness - all on an 8-foot table with a single oven, one assistant and a storage rack. Imagine what I could do with my own space.
I run a thriving wholesale and direct to consumer bakery from a kitchen space I share with five other businesses. I love my kitchen compadres—but oven time and counter space are scarce, and I need my own kitchen to accommodate demand and grow my business. I seek a commercial space to create Houston’s first-ever bakery bar, the place to go for unforgettable sweet treats plus craft beers and interesting wines. My new space will need convection ovens, refrigeration, a service counter, and other basic restaurant amenities. This is where the funds from our Kickstarter will come into play. Your support will help us to furnish our kitchen and allow us working capital to build out the interior of Fluff Bake Bar. Hiring the necessary folks, contractors, plumbers, electricians, painters, etc, to help us realize our dream of having a store front.
Fluff Bake Bar is for anyone who enjoys simple pleasures: flaky-crusted peach pie in the summer, a perfectly baked snickerdoodle, the smell of brown butter, and a frosty pint of local beer. We'll give you access to a range of sweets—from classic cookies to playful snacks to beautifully plated desserts—and let you enjoy them with a nice beer or glass of wine.
Help me fund my Fluff Bake Bar space and you’ll get daily access to some of the finest baked goods in the country. The new space will offer dozens of options for cookies, cakes, brownies, and macarons—plus fancier dessert tastings, custom cakes, cooking classes, ice cream socials, Sunday brunch, and more. For something even more tangible, check out my list of rewards over to your right.

Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge has been finding a perfect home for Fluff Bake Bar: somewhere that allows us to combine our love for bakery treats and our passion for plated desserts and tasty libations. We believe we've now found our little oasis, so need these funds to help our dream come true. Bakeries are a risky business, but we know we'll be successful thanks to our already loyal following and awesome wholesale customers that we've cultivated over the past 3 years. We're confident that a permanent home for Fluff Bake Bar will allow us to grow beyond our wildest imaginations. We're currently in negotiations with a landlord to complete the lease agreement, and we'll continue to work hard daily to move this process along so that we can begin to build Houston's best bake bar for you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
