Why did you change your name?
In the spring of 2019, I changed my name from “The Little Pink Bakery",” to “Gem City Bakehouse.”
I wanted to pick a name that will grow with me and my company into the future. I choose “Gem City” because that’s Dayton’s nickname and “bakehouse” because it was more appropriate for my home bakery than “bakery” was. I hope you all will continue to love Gem City Bakehouse as much as you did The Little Pink Bakery!
Why Cake Balls?
I've loved making cake balls for friends and family since 2009. They're a recipe I've changed and honed over the last 9 years, so it just made sense to start with them. I think they're the perfect addition to any dessert bar or snack table and they're so much easier to serve than cake.
Do you Make Cakes?
No. At this time, I am not making and/or selling cakes.
I know, a bakery that doesn't make cakes is surprising, but I couldn't pass up a cute name!
I have everything I sell listed on the order page.
Do you do weddings?
Yes! I love creating unique and delicious cake balls for couples on their special day. Be sure to check out my weddings page to view my services and to schedule a free consultation.
I have a large event coming up, can I order cake balls for it?
Yes you can! I've supplied cake balls for local businesses' Christmas presents for staff and Easter "thank yous" for customers. If you're around Cincinnati or Dayton and you need cake balls or cake pops for a large event or corporate presents, check out my large orders page and contact me to book the date.
Can I get an order for today or tomorrow?
No. Everything I make is made-to-order, so I need a minimum of 1 week to prepare and make your custom order. I don't keep extra cake balls/pops on hand for last-minute orders.
Will you expand your menu in the future?
Absolutely! There are a couple things I'd love to add to the menu once I perfect the recipe.
Is the bakery your full-time job?
Nope! I work a full-time job Monday-Friday from 9-5, which is why I book up quickly! The bakery is quickly becoming another full-time job, though.
This is also why email is the best way to get in touch with me as I cannot answer my phone during the day.
Where are you located?
I am located in Kettering, Ohio. I do not publish my address since this is a home bakery and having people turn up at my house looking for cake balls then and there might be a little scary (just kidding!).
I will provide the address for pick-up once your order is confirmed.
What areas of ohio do you serve?
My customers are typically from the Cincinnati and Dayton areas, but since customers pick up their orders, you can technically be from anywhere (as long as you're willing to drive the distance!).
I have had a couple customers drive down from Columbus to pick up orders and friends take cake balls with them as they travel out of state.
