Busy Bakers Owner Nicole Dudum stocks the shelves of her new downtown San Bruno business.
Busy Bakers in San Bruno celebrated its grand opening early this month at 444 San Mateo Drive with a ribbon cutting, free demos and free cookie decorating.
The store, which officially opened Aug. 10, sells cookbooks and baking supplies, including a wall of cupcake liners; sprinkles; chocolate molds; and cookie cutters. It also hosts cooking classes.
“I have loved baking for a long time now,” said owner Nicole Dudum. “I wanted a place locally that people could to get everything they needed for baking and have it be a fun place.”
Dudum had the walls painted green to reflect this fun feeling. There’s also a community board to post photos.
“We’ve kept prices reasonable,” Dudum said. “We want to make baking a fun project, instead of a must-do thing since [baking] prices are so expensive it gets to be more of a hassle. We have high-end brands at reasonable prices; we keep prices down by finding the manufacturers.”
Its first class was butter cream basics Wednesday, Sept. 4, which let customers do cake decorating and icing making. Busy Bakers’ second class was a cake decorating class Saturday, Sept. 7.
Dudum is from San Francisco and was a nanny before opening the shop. She has made cakes on the side for at least seven years now.
“It’s a fun place to begin baking adventures or let it help you keep going and get inspired,” Dudum said. “It’s a fun place to go.”
September promotions at the new business include getting a free reusable tote bag with a purchase of $50 or more, getting free mystery cupcake liners when you spend $20 or more and signing up for a class with a friend and both getting $5 off the class fee.
The store’s hours are Tuesday to Saturday 9 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday and Monday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Upcoming events include a “Mommy & Me” class for $35 on Tuesday, Sept. 17.
It will also host a Halloween party on Oct. 27, 1 p.m.-4 p.m., have special Halloween sale going on that day, free kids project and free adult demo.
