Two notes for West Seattle baked-goods fans:
BAKED. IN ADMIRAL: The custom-cake creators of Baked. are now “all moved in” at their new HQ, 2604 California SW, which they are sharing with Heavenly Pastry. (Neither business plans a retail storefront – Baked. makes custom-ordered cakes; Heavenly bakes wholesale.) We stopped by Wednesday afternoon to meet the Baked. proprietors; above, that’s Baked.’s Kristina Serfass, working on a batch of cake filling; below, that’s Natalie Vorpahl, working on the Mercer Island High School logo for a cake to celebrate that school’s state lacrosse championship:
Their website includes a “menu” link, where you’ll find a long list of potential flavors and ingredients, as well as a “seasonal menu” (one of the current options: mango coconut). Next bakery note:
ORIGINAL BAKERY TO CELEBRATE ‘DOUGHNUT DAY’: Tomorrow, Anna Alonzo tells us, is National Doughnut Day. And since she is with one of West Seattle’s most celebrated doughnut (and more) shops – The Original Bakery in Fauntleroy (9253 45th SW) – she ought to know. Anna tells WSB she’s planning to visit Southwest Community Center at 1 pm on Friday, “giving applesauce doughnuts and coffee to folks to celebrate.” A website update is in the works for the bakery – which has been building a following on Facebook (check out the onesies!) – and it might debut on Doughnut Day too.
