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.

The bakery has continued to grow and by early 2018 we literally had too many cooks in the kitchen – so when we had the opportunity to add a second location in Wells Branch, we took it! The new location offers the same delicious cakes our customers have grown to love, as well as a more extensive menu of pastries, savory items, gluten free and vegan treats, grab and go lunch items and a full espresso menu in a cheerful, cozy setting. It also gives us the space to expand our wholesale and corporate catering business (if you’ve been to an Austin area Nordstrom’s eBar or Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf lately, then you may have enjoyed one of our treats)! We are very grateful for the support from the local community and look forward to meeting more of you soon.

OUR BUSINESS

Call or stop by our original location at Anderson Mill or our newest location in Wells Branch — we look forward to meeting you soon!

 

WHO WE ARE

Dream Bakery got its start when original 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. She named the bakery Dream Bakery in honor of the dream she was following.

“Ya’ll really are THE BEST!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE your cakes, your creativity, your artistic flare, your professionalism, and of course your expertise in baking cakes and cookies that not only look incredible, but also taste OH-MAZING!!!!  — Amber A.
