Sydney and I had such a great time visiting Rachel’s Cakes in Anna, Ohio. Anna is a little town north of Sidney, Ohio right off Interstate 75. The town of Anna is so charming and everyone is really friendly. It is one of those small towns where you feel like you have stepped back in time. These little towns are so much fun to explore! We are so glad we had the chance to explore Anna because we found the neatest bakery when we came across Rachel’s Cakes.
Where is Rachel’s Cakes?
Rachel’s Cakes can be found at 313 W Main St, Anna, OH 45302. It is such a cute little store where Rachel does all her baking and where you can come and purchase some delicious goodies.
The Buckeye Brownie is the best selling item for Rachel’s Cakes. And we know why! Oh my goodness, it was so delicious! The Buckeye Brownie is the perfect marriage of chocolate and peanut butter. We would highly recommend that you give this treat a try!
Rachel’s Cookie Sandwiches are another great seller. Look at these beauties below. Two amazing cookies with icing and M&M’s in between. Seriously, these are truly off the charts!
How Her Dream was Formed
We asked Rachel how she got started in the baking industry. She has dual bachelor’s degrees in Sociology and Psychology. When she was in college she worked in the bakery department of a Giant Eagle grocery store. She fell in loving with baking and cake decorating. Rachel told us that she has always had an artistic flair and it really came out when she started doing cake decorating.
We are sure that the Anna, Ohio area is really glad she followed her baking passion and started baking and decorating cakes. Upon graduating college, Rachel started baking cakes out of her home. She did this for 9 years prior to opening up her store front in April of 2017.
You can see, in the picture below, how much of an artistic flair Rachel has. Just look at these cute piggie cupcakes! Are these not just the cutest things you have ever seen?
Rachel loves making fun treats for children to enjoy. What child, or adult for that matter, could turn away from this really cool cupcake? The name Sugar Rush appears to be very fitting! 🙂 And yes, that is a real lollipop sticking out of the top!
Perfect for Showers!
It’s not all fun and games for Rachel’s decorating skills though. She can also create very elegant and gorgeous designs. Check these beauties out below. What a beautiful cupcake for a bridal or baby shower. They truly would be welcome at any special occasion!
Do you like cheesecake? Then these mini cheesecakes would be perfect for your next event.
Old Favorites & New Creations
Rachel loves trying out new items in the store. You will always find one or two new items in her case that Rachel is experimenting with. Just as you will always find the Buckeye Brownie and Iced Butter Cookies stocked and ready each and every week. What more could a person ask for? Their favorites in the store all the time, plus new goodies to try each week. Sounds like absolute heaven to us and our sweet tooth! 🙂
The favorite parts of running Rachel’s Cakes for Rachel is the creative freedom to try new things whenever she likes. She also loves the artistic side to the business.
Some of the harder things of running Rachel’s Cakes for her is that she currently is running it solo. She also isn’t a huge fan of multi tasking between the baking/decorating side of things and the business side of things.
People come from Celina, Columbus and Coldwater to get some of Rachel’s goodies. Her cakes have traveled to Tennessee, Illinois and Florida. A wedding cake left Anna, Ohio and went all the way to Jamaica! Wow! That is so hard to imagine. Someone must really love Rachel’s Cakes!
Rachel’s busiest season is April through June. These months are full of orders for confirmations, graduations, Mother’s Day and weddings.
If you are ever in the area you really need to stop in and check out Rachel’s really cute store. Make sure to try some of her delicious baked goods. We promise you will be glad you did!
Whether you just want a few goodies to eat or you need a cake for a special occasion, you will want to give Rachel’s Cakes a try!
While you are visiting Rachel’s Cakes, check out some nearby shops. They are very cute stores and carry some unique items you don’t see everyday at the mall.
Have a really sweet day!
