As of 3/18/20 we'll closed for a few weeks

Dear Friends and Family,
The good news is that Y’all are hunkering down and taking social distancing seriously. We're proud of you for putting your neighbor’s safety first.

We have been consulting our team ever step of the way as we make decisions at the same time the ground is shifting under our feet. Their needs and safety are our first priority.
Today we decided together that it was in their best interest to close for a couple of weeks. We’ll reopen when its safe for people to be out and about and we can provide enough hours for our staff.

Everyone with a cake order already placed has been contacted and accommodated.
Please be safe, healthy, and creative. We’ll see you on the other side.


With love,
Your Bywater Bakery Family
