  • The Holidays are Here!

    Meet the Bakers Making Magic with Dovecote this Holiday Season

    Glasshouse Goods

    Baker: Danyelle Tobin

    My love of baking comes from my Nana. I remember pressing juices and using the leftover rinds to make cookies with her as a child. I want to spread the "homey" style of baking; which I identify as traditional baked goods rewound & in collaboration with new flavors. Fall into Fall with GlassHouse, all of our Holiday Items scream warm & cozy from the savory breads to the crisp favorite fall fruits we've loved forever; we believe these items will add the right touch to any occasion.

    Taste This Cake

    Baker: Jamillah Muhammad

    Baking captured my heart watching my great grandmother and grandmother in the kitchen in Florida. Everything was from scratch and, most times, were handpicked produce and ingredients. We moved away and I lost touch with it…until I became a nurse. I saw more bad than good, so I started baking for the staff. Let’s face it, no one is sad when there are baked goods around! Today, we are operating out of B-More Kitchen and inviting you to “Taste This Cake!” Our core values mimic my childhood: southern inspired, from scratch, local and/or organic ingredients, less waste and community oriented.

    Mimi's Decadent Desserts

    Baker: Shamai Wilder

    With over twenty years of experience in scratch baking of cakes and desserts-holiday season is in my blood. I'm self taught and a graduate of Strafford University with certification in Professional Cooking and Baking. The holidays are a time for family and good food, especially desserts to finish off the meal, are essential to that.
