Located in historic downtown Edwardsville, we are your hometown bakery. Our doors officially opened in July of 2011, by Tom and Dee Dannenberg. Lindsey and her two sons, Chase and Grant took over the bakery as the new owners in April of 2017.
Lindsey has a degree in Corporate Communication, Business Administration and Management. While her degree doesn’t have anything to do with baking, it has given her a solid business foundation, thus making for a great fit as a small business owner. After graduating from Southeast Missouri State University in December of 2011, Lindsey began working for Panera as an assistant manager. She assisted with opening a new location, training new employees, and relocating to assist with additional training in operations. From there, she went into commercial real estate where she assisted Edward Jones offices during Hurricane Katrina.
After having her two boys, she wanted to venture into something new. Cake Balls (or cake pops) were the latest sweet treat and that captured her attention. She opened up her cake ball business, “Wilsey’s Handmade Sweets” in 2011. The business was a success; however, with it being just a one woman operation and having two young boys, it wasn’t the best fit.
In the spring of 2017, Lindsey was ready to get back into the baking business and decided to purchase A Little Taste of Heaven Bakery. She and her boys were customers back in 2011 when it opened, so there was no need to convince her that this was a successful and yummy bakery. They definitely already knew this!
The support of each of you has continued to make owning and operating the bakery an amazing adventure! Lindsey has extended the hours of operations, so now the bakery is open 7 days a week. She can be found in the bakery most days, as well as her boys on the weekends. They all take pride in owning such an amazing bakery and promise to continue to delivery amazing sweets to you each day!
Please stop in and introduce yourself to us, as we want you to feel at home in our family bakery!
