After a successful run creating gorgeous cookies, cakes, and other sweet treats from her home bakery, Kayla Bass, owner of Baking with a Bass, will open her first storefront on Friday in Grain Valley.
Baking with a Bass, located at 1428 SW Eagles Parkway, will offer a variety of items in their case to satisfy any sweet tooth, and will accept custom orders for pickup. Customers hoping to order for graduations and other spring events should request their order quickly, as Bass is now 4-6 weeks out on custom orders.
Bass began her baking business at home after several friends and relatives who enjoyed her creations encouraged her to go into the business. Her business grew mainly through word of mouth, and she is excited to begin this new adventure and have space to accept additional orders.
"I've had a lot of customers in the past ask me if they could stop by and pick up some things randomly, but since I was doing it out of my home, it was all custom ordered. With the storefront, it will be nice to be able to have people come in and pick something up on a random Wednesday," Bass said.
Bass said she is excited to open and serve the community that has been so supportive of her in the process of opening her shop.
"The community and the city has been overwhelmingly so supportive and I'm so grateful for it. The city wants small businesses to succeed and I appreciate that."
