Stretch Goal

Holy Cow! We beat our stretch goal of $1,500!! Next stretch goal is $2,500. These extra funds will enure we have enough for renovating both an old pick-up truck and trailer, which can get rather pricey. We added yet another fun new reward for those who contribute. Paws & fingers crossed we can make it.  Thanks everyone!!

--------------------------------------------

Who We Are

We're Lulu (left) and Karen (right) and together we make up Sweet Lulu's Bakery on Wheels.

Why Put Desserts In Mason Jars?

Living in a coastal community like Charleston, South Carolina, a lot of time is spent outside or on the water. Every chance a Charlestonian gets, we pack a cooler and flock to the beach or hop on a boat. Thing is dessert is often hard to transport. So, we make tasty treats in easy-to-go mason jars. A mason jar fits nicely in any cooler and is as Southern as our pecan bourbon pie.

Our mason jar desserts are also ideal for an outdoor birthday party, oyster roast or a Southern style Lowcountry wedding.

Country Living Magazine says our bakery is "probably the best idea for a food truck ever." I'm totally inclined to agree!

Where We Are Today

We completed our branding and website, already catered a birthday party and even have brides booking us for their Fall 2014 and Summer 2015 weddings! Better still, we've been getting some great PRESS and even personally delivered sweet treats to NYTimes Best-Selling Author and Good Morning America's Tory Johnson!! 

We also have our applications in at the local Farmers Markets. You can expect to sample Sweet Lulu's at Awendaw Green on Wednesday's and the Johns Island "Homegrown" Farmers Market on Saturday's very soon!

What's In It For You?

It's one thing for me to tell ya how fab-u-luss my -- dare I say better than Grandma's -- desserts are and it's quite another for you to sample for yourself. So, in return for your support, if you're in Charleston, simply visit us to pick up our easy to transport desserts or if you're across the country, we ship our cookies USPS Priority 2-Day Mail to your door.

My Story

I think my love of baking came from my childhood. Growing up an only child, of divorced parents, in a very tight-knit Irish Catholic community, I was raised with this 1950s ideal of what a “family dinner” was supposed to be.

While my childhood dinners were spent sitting alone in front of the TV as my mom worked a second job to make ends meet, as an adult cooking elaborate meals and especially decadent desserts for friends has become this fun and wonderful way to always have a full dinner table.

And while it may sound hokey, I like to think that not only do I love to bake, but I also bake with love.

Where You Come In

Our bakery on wheels is missing 1 very important ingredient…wheels! So my goal is to raise funds to renovate a vintage pick-up truck and trailer as the areas only mason jar mobile bakery.

Puppy Kisses,

lulu & karen

Risks and challenges

I think the most challenging thing any new business has is finding customers. In the very short amount of time I've been promoting this campaign, I've already had brides book me for weddings and numerous Instagram followers ask where I'll be so they can sample our tasty and easy to transport mason jar desserts.
