Angela’s Bakery Kitchen
Everything on the menu is made and baked in our fully certified home kitchen. This is made possible under the California Cottage Food Act. Our kitchen was custom designed to bake for you! We have two ovens, a 20-quart mixer for large batches. For those smaller orders, we added a couple of KitchenAid mixers. We have the capability to bake for almost any size gathering.
Delivery to your location
Delivery to the Quincy area is FREE. A fee will be charged for delivery outside of Quincy and we can discuss the delivery fee when you place your order. Every order is freshly baked and sometimes your bread will still be warm from the oven because that is how we do fresh.
Event changes in 2020
Since March of 2020, our events have become smaller and more personal. Wedding cakes for example are smaller but they are beautiful and show the style of the wedding. For our customer’s peace of mind, we offer individually packaging for cupcakes and cookies. Please let us know when you order if individual packaging is what you prefer. It is truly a delight to create beautiful and delicious wedding cakes, birthday cakes, and so much more. I really believe that every day should be celebrated with beautiful deserts.
About the Baker…
Meet the Baker, Angela Sandlin. She is the oldest in a family of 6 kids. She grew up on a small family-run dairy farm in Northern Utah, just outside of Logan. The farm has a small herd of dairy cows, a large garden, and 4-H animals like turkeys, sheep, and rabbits. Life was filled with hours of gardening, milking, taking care of animals, canning food for the winter, and hauling hay. The family garden, grandparent’s orchard and animals grown on the farm provided a lot of the family’s food for the winter. Baking from scratch was just part of growing up in a big family.
When Baking became interesting
Because of her interest in baking, her mom taught Angela to bake starting at 8 years old. Starting with muffins for the family for breakfast and graduating to more complicated items as she got older. Angela won a 1st place trophy for a swiss cheese bread she entered into a 4-H dairy foods contest when she was thirteen years old. She was a contestant in the Cache Valley 4-h Dairy darling program twice. Never winning but super eager to talk about her knowledge of Dairy Farming and Dairy products. This is where her belief that frosting should be made with REAL butter and whole milk comes from.
After living her adult life in several locations across the United States she fell in love with Quincy California and in 2008, as a single mom with five kids, Angela moved to Quincy. By 2012 Angela had remarried and added to the family. With six children ranging in age from newborn to age 17 and a husband who was on the road a lot, she felt like some changes were needed to improve her availability to her family. This is where the idea of baking out of her home kitchen was born and just in time for the state of California to pass the Cottage Food Act.
Angela had rolled around the idea for a few years but now the timing was right for this idea to grow into a reality. With her husband and children’s support and love, she quit her job as a teller at a local bank to start Angela’s Baker Way Bakery. By April of 2013, Angela combined her background in marketing, business, and baking skills to create great-tasting products for Angela’s Baker Way Bakery. The menu consisted of Cinnamon Rolls, different varieties of gourmet brownies, dinner rolls, and cookies. As customers have made requests, the menu has grown. Two years later Angela added Cakes and cupcakes. With her family and friends willing to be her test subjects, recipes were tested and tweaked until she had what she felt was good to add to the menu.
In the spring of 2016, the family moved from the home on Jackson Street to a home on Main Street in East Quincy. With perks like more visibility and easier accessibility for customers plus a really big yard for the kids, this was a great move for everyone. This home just happens to have a brand new kitchen. The kitchen was designed by Angela to break up the bakery workspace from the family kitchen space. Thus making a home baking business much easier to run.
With the move a name change was due. Angela’s Baker Way Baker was a bit of a tongue twister for some. The business was no longer located on Baker Way so with the removal of “Baker Way” Angela’s Bakery is officially the name of the bakery! With all the excitement of ‘new’, a few new items like PIE and french bread have been added to the menu.
