Years ago, the owner of Blessed Bee Cupcakes started her business in the kitchen of her own home. She lovingly sifted flour and beat fresh eggs for made-to-order baked goods. Word of her cakes and cupcakes started to spread through the community, and she was eventually able to open a bakery in historic downtown Fond du Lac. There, she crafts treats using local, seasonal ingredients; recent specialties include pumpkin pie spice cupcakes and vanilla bean cupcakes infused with vanilla bean seeds from Village Market. Patrons can also order specialty cakes decorated with smooth fondant or buttercream icing.

Since 1977, the cookie craftsmen at Great American Cookies have shared edible sentiments via freshly baked cookies, brownies, and hand-decorated cookie cakes. The shop’s website caters to sweet requests with an online store full of preconceived designs searchable by occasion, recipient gender, and theme, including birthdays and holidays. Alternatively, nibblers can orchestrate specific decoration cravings and create unique designs to celebrate special events, such as baby’s first hedge fund.
Becky’s Blissful Bakery’s confectionists eschew high-fructose corn syrup or preservatives, instead, they handcraft most batches of gluten-free caramels from organic ingredients—including some from other local merchants. Along with the original vanilla-caramel recipe, flavors such as masala chai tea from Rishi Tea or extra-special bitter beer from Lakefront Brewery infuse the treats with added complexity. Rather than protecting each caramel by wrapping it in peanut butter, Becky’s bakers swaddle the morsels in wax paper before arranging them in packages accented with silver bows.
