About the Baker…
Meet the Baker, Angela Sandlin. She is the oldest in a family of 6 kids. A farm girl from a small family-run dairy farm in Northern Utah, just outside of Logan. This farm girl helped milk small herd of dairy cows, tend a large garden, and participated in raising 4-H animals like turkeys, sheep, and rabbits. Life was filled with 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. Angela has 6 kids of her own and has lived in the beautiful town of Quincy California since 2008.
When Baking became interesting
Angela’s interest in baking came from her mom, and an early 80’s version of a Betty Crocker cookbook, taught Angela to bake starting at 8 years old. In the beginning she made muffins for the family for breakfast and then graduated to more complicated items as she got older. Angela won a 1st place trophy in a 4-H Dairy Foods contest, for swiss cheese bread, when she was thirteen years old. A contestant in the Cache Valley 4-H Dairy darling program twice and never winning but super eager to talk about her knowledge of Dairy Farming and Dairy products.
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 wonderful supportive husband. it was time to make 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 of baking from her home kitchen for a few years. In 2013 the timing was right for this idea to grow into a reality. With her husband and children’s support, 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. In 2015 Angela added cakes and cupcakes.
In the spring of 2016, the family moved from the home on Jackson Street to a home on Main Street in East Quincy. This home just happens to have a brand new kitchen. The kitchen was designed by Angela and perfect for baking a lot more product. Thus making a home baking business much easier to run. So then it was time for a bit of rebranding.
Angela’s Baker Way Baker is a bit of a tongue twister for some. The business is no longer located on Baker Way so with the removal of “Baker Way” Angela’s Bakery is officially the name of the bakery. In all the excitement, new items like PIE and french bread were added to the menu.
Towards the end of 2019 and the Hot Chocolate Bomb trend had taken over our kitchen and our holidays. With the support of her husband and family Angela started the Baking and Pastry program at Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts. She graduated March 30th of 2021 with a Diploma in Professional Pastry Arts. On September 28th of 2021 she completed an Associate of Occupational Studies in Professional Pastry Arts. Studying under some very accomplished chefs and artists was both an honor and a dream come true. All of this was accomplished while Covid 19 was rolling around the globe and many food establishments were closing permanently.
