I was born and raised in Summerville, SC. and I have lived in the area my entire life. My home now resides in Ridgeville, SC. which is a beautiful small town and where I chose to begin my bakery.
The idea and passion for baking started at some point in my life when I decided I need to change my career, and I found a love for baking cakes and treats. I've loved baking since I was a small child in grade school, and prepared baked goods in food service for many years. Once I realized this was the direction I wanted to go in, it came down to how I planned to set myself apart; I was going to make cakes the way I would want them.
I don't like big cakes because it can't be eaten all at once, and I feel that large cakes can get drier and drier from sitting out. I also don't like alot of frosting, so I starting making smaller cakes with drizzled icing like you see above. I practiced with more and more flavors, and decided to offer a wide variety to satisfy all of Summerville SC's 'sweet tooths'!
The Chocolate & Cherries Cake is my signature cake and one of my best sellers. I chose this cake for one of my signature cakes, but also as part of my logo because my business is living on in his memory. Dad loved chocolate and cherries, and I just know he would have loved this wonderful combination in a cake.
Thank you for your interest in The Ridgeville Bakery, I appreciate your support and love bringing some sweetness into your lives!
