The first time I tasted a baked creation from Bread Art occurred when a friend kindly dropped off a cake for me. When I inquired about the type of cake I was receiving, my friend responded, “does it matter? It’s cake.” Wow, I thought. There is a lot of truth in that.

With my new mantra dancing in my head of cake and life and gestures and what really matters, I took my first bite. I stopped just short of bursting into tears.

My friend failed to tell me that it would become one of the best-tasting things I have ever put in my mouth. My new mantra: it damn well matters what kind of cake it is.

The life-altering dessert was a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting layered with chocolate ganache. The ganache was rich but not overpowering. The cake was dense and soft, with a slight crumble. And I still have fantasies about that frosting – it consists of me eating the cream cheese frosting out of a never-ending jar.

I could dedicate a sonnet to that cake.

Owners Chris and Heather Peterson opened Bread Art in 2005. Chris is a pastry chef and is the producer behind many of the baked treats in the bakery. Heather is a bread and cake connoisseur who specializes in decorating.

Located on 3rd Street (Highway 95) in Bayport, Bread Art specializes in wedding cakes, petite desserts, artisan bread, donuts, pies, and various pastries.

And life-changing cakes.

    I just moved to Stillwater and have not been able to find a good sesame hard roll. Looking for a hard roll, not a soft roll. Crunchy on top and soft inside.
