As a baker, Kate began the search for a commercial kitchen space to work from to start her own professional wedding cake business. After a tireless search, the spaces Kate found were limited to smaller community centers and cramped basement kitchens with older equipment. 

Kate soon realized that she would need to create a unique, well-equipped commercial kitchen space where she could work along side other bakers in need of the same workspace. By May 2016 Bake Shop Studio was launched. Today the studio has helped several baking businesses off the ground and provides Cake and Baking classes for new bakers.
