Flour + sugar + butter = best invention ever.

The bride thinks about the dress, the invites, the flowers, the favors, the everlasting list of details. The groom thinks about? The CAKE.

We’re heading a bit farther north tonight to Back Porch Bakery, a homegrown sweets extravaganza in Bolivar, Missouri. Short and sweet…just like a cupcake 😉

Hello! Tell us about yourself.

My name is Misty Riedesel. I started baking as a hobby and then decided to go all in and went full time in 2013. My husband and I live in the little town of Polk, Missouri. I have 2 step daughters, ages 16 and 17. I love learning new baking and decorating trends.
