Bespoke Bakery & Dessert Bar was launched January 2017 with a mission to provide handcrafted sweet treats with unique flavor profiles and personalized touches. We offer an array of desserts, each embedded with quality ingredients and attention to detail. To date, we have enjoyed providing desserts for events and hand delivering each local customer's order but we're ready to take this show on the road with a mobile bakery!
The Woman Behind the Whisk
Hey Sweetie! I'm Trista, Owner and Operator at Bespoke Bakery & Dessert Bar! I am a proud native of Nashville, TN and moved to North Carolina in 2016. Growing up, I was drawn to cooking and baking. I vividly remember watching my grandfather make fried green tomatoes, making homemade pizzas with my mom, helping my dad make his Reuben wontons, smiling as my siblings ate ANOTHER creation from my Easy Bake Oven, and tuning into the Food Network after school. Being in the kitchen is one thing that I can truly say came naturally to me. It is perfectly balanced as an art and a science...structure and creativity. It is a lot like me! :)
It is no surprise to the people that know me best that I'd land in this field one way or another. In 2011, I launched Yin Yang Cupcake Bar - an online bakery specializing in alcohol infused cupcakes. I was fortunate to bake for weddings and festivals, events for the Tennessee Titans and Nashville Fashion Week and to form relationships with Smirnoff and Jackson Morgan Southern Cream. Yin Yang Cupcake Bar was amazing but as I grew as a woman and a baker, it was necessary to revamp the business to speak to who I am and hope to become. Bespoke Bakery & Dessert Bar was born!
The Bespoke Approach
The Bespoke Approach is to offer delicious, handcrafted desserts and an experience. By using methods not widely practiced, we are able to deliver an assortment of flavor profiles, textures, and desserts that were created with the mature palate in mind. The Bespoke Approach is a keen attention to detail and doing everything with intention.
Bespoke Bakery & Dessert Bar proudly serves customers in The Triangle of North Carolina and ships nationwide.
While we still specialize in alcohol infused cupcakes, we decided to expand the menu when we relaunched. We now offer cupcake jars, brownies, cookies, French macarons, cereal treats, and lots of other desserts on our custom dessert bars.
Right now, Bespoke functions as an online bakery. Customers can order online and the desserts are delivered to their desired location. While this works, it limits our customer base quite a bit. We are launching our iFund Women campaign to reach the next step in our vision, a mobile bakery. A mobile bakery will allow us to share our sweet treats with more people in a few ways: standard food truck operation, renting of the truck for an array of special events and occasions, and it will give us the ability to easily participate in several local festivals and existing events. Contributions will also go toward bigger commissary space, materials, and equipment.
With your help, Bespoke will continue to grow and provide us with the opportunity to help more people Indulge Responsibly. We truly appreciate you!
