“Prairie Baking Co. is a cake and pastry bakery in Portland, servicing southern Maine, specializing in buttercream cakes decorated with fresh florals. I aim to showcase the natural flavors, colors, and textures of all the seasonal produce we have available to us here in southern Maine. I make delicious, artistically designed, custom cakes and pastries for weddings and special events. You can find a selection of my pastries available throughout the week at Little Woodfords coffee shop, the Proper Cup Coffee House, and Coveside Coffee.
With a combination of inspiration from french pastry, U.K. desserts and cake decorating, as well as comforting American standbys (hello chocolate chip cookies!), each cake, cookie, and pastry is made with care and with my customers in mind. I hand make all of my cakes and pastries including my swiss meringue buttercream and cake fillings using cage free eggs, king arthur flour, local butter, real vanilla, and local produce. I firmly believe that wedding cake should taste amazing as well as look amazing. I bake out of our commercial production kitchen on Washington Avenue in Portland, ME.”
