About Us


In 2016, she was ready for retirement and she passed her dream on to Karen and the Fry family. Karen spent 25 years in marketing before deciding to pursue her own dream of owning a bakery. She has been gluten free for over 40 years and been baking since she was old enough to turn on the oven, but the idea for a bakery really got its start when her family started making gluten free baked goods for school events. All those years of experimenting with gluten free baking paid off when people starting asking where they could buy her cookies. Her children helped her open a home based business but it quickly became apparent they needed a bigger space. When Karen met Azar, she knew that adding her recipes to Azar’s and expanding Dream Bakery to offer even more specialty items would be a winning combination. We hope you agree!


Dream Bakery is a locally owned business which has been serving Austin and the surrounding areas since 2005. Our menu features cakes (both custom and ready made), European style pastries, cupcakes, cakeballs, and a wide variety of cookies and other sweets. We also offer seasonal treats such as pies, cheesecakes, and chocolate dipped strawberries. Many of our items are available made with gluten free ingredients. We are proud to offer delicious desserts that you simply won’t find everywhere else! Our talented team of bakers and cake decorators can create just about any cake you can dream up. Visit our cozy location at Anderson Mill and 183 to enjoy a cup of a coffee and a pastry or to consult with us on the cake for your wedding or special occasion – or just give us a call at 512-219-1235. We’d be happy to hear from you!



Dream Bakery got its start when founder Azar decided to combine her professional knowledge of chemistry with her passion for baking by opening a bakery that featured her own special recipes. She quickly developed a reputation for moist, delicious cakes that taste as good as they look and a loyal following for her specialty pastries and Persian sweets. She named the bakery Dream Bakery in honor of the dream she was following.
