If you live in Albany or around the immediate Capital Region, odds are you have heard or tasted some of the incredible baked goods from Bake For You. Established in 2009 by owner and baker extraordinaire, Linda Kindlon, Bake For You is a boutique bakery that focuses on small batches of baked goods to ensure quality and freshness.
As an Albany native, Linda is committed to keeping her business local AND she utilizes locally sourced butter, eggs, etc. whenever she can with a focus on organic ingredients. Bake For You most recently found a home in the emerging “DelSo” neighborhood in Albany (Delware Ave) near other local favorites like New World Bistro Bar; the Spectrum; and Fort Orange General Store.
In addition, Linda is an all around awesome person and I couldn't be happier or more proud of the success she has found with following her passion for baking (yay, women who follow their dreams)! Needless to say, Linda is a super sparkler and a dear friend. We follwed one another on Instagram long before we met in person and once we did we immediately hit it off.
To celebrate my 5 years in business Linda was awesome enough to make a Katie O' Cupcake! (OMG I HAVE MY OWN CUPCAKE!) and it is beyond amazing! She took all the little details of KOWE and created a customized cupcake! From the touch of Katie O' green, the coconut frosting (I heart coconut), and a little gold sparkle on top she made me and my team feel extra special!
Bake For You is also available for special orders of their wide variety of unique cookie flavors, cakes for the everyday occasion and even wedding cakes! Linda has created some amazing bespoke cookies for bridal showers that were the perfect sweet treat for guests! Her creativity knows no bounds!
Do yourself a favor and stop by the bakery located at 540 Delaware Ave in Albany, NY–Bake For You is celebrating their 1 year anniversary in that space this week, too! Yay! Oh, and be sure to follow Bake For You on Facebook for fun weekly giveaways and updates on what's new in the shop!
