New bakery set to open
Editor’s note: Emily Freehling is taking a break and will return soon.
The Fredericksburg region’s newest bakery is set to open this Monday, Sept. 10.
The bakery will feature a storefront where customers can buy made-from-scratch goodies such as cheese or fruit Danishes and bourbon walnut brownies along with a cup of coffee to go.
“It won’t be a doughnut shop,” Chef Nancy Davis said recently.
She’ll also use the space to continue making the breads and other items she sells at area farmers markets; the rolls and breads she makes for FOODE; and the wedding, birthday and other cakes she bakes for special events.
“I like to use fresh, edible flowers on wedding cakes,” said Davis, who prefers buttercream frosting to fondant. “I like everything that I make to be edible. Nothing artificial. You have to use artificial colors and pastes to make flowers out of fondant. I can do it, but I don’t like the taste.”
