Chef and founder of Sweet Magnolia Bakery, Haylee Shaddock has loved the art and magic of baking since she was a young girl. Shadowing her grandmother’s in their kitchens from a young age inspired a passion and love for creating handmade, sweet creations in  Haylee. After graduating from High School, Haylee set off to New York to attend baking school, knowing that she would one day open her own sweet shop. After years of honing her skills and experimenting under Master Baker’s, Haylee returned to the Bay Area to work under Chef Ostrander at the St. Pete Bakery, where she was able to perfect her baking skills in her own style and move on to open her very own bakery, Sweet Magnolia.

The name Sweet Magnolia Bakery is a homage to Chef Haylee’s favorite bakery in New York and to her Florida heritage. Haylee wanted to create a place that honored her time in New York as a baking student, as well as honor her Florida roots. A sweet name was created and Sweet Magnolia Bakery opened shop to serve the delectable baked goods to dessert lovers in the area. 

Chef Haylee works with the finest ingredients available and believes in making everything from scratch. Nothing comes out of a box or or frozen at Sweet Magnolia Bakery. From the cookies, cakes, bread and cheesecakes to the strudels, cannoli, pies and brownies - Chef Haylee and her team never cut corners and always go the extra mile to finish off their mouth-watering delectable treats! Sweet Magnolia Bakery even has options that taste amazing for those with Celiac-Disease, dietary restrictions and vegan diets! 

Some of the delicious choices to pick from at Sweet Magnolia Bakery include: Tiramisu, Bread Pudding, Lemon Bars, Key Lime Bars, Apple Hand Pies, N.Y. Cheesecake, Chicago Cheesecake, Blueberry Pound Cake Banana Nut Bread, Fudge Brownie’s and more! These are just a few options off Sweet Magnolia Bakery’s dessert menu. Haylee has created a Gluten-Free menu that includes: Peanut Butter Cookies, Clichey, Marjolaine, Buckeyes, Espresso Cookies, Coconut Macaroons and Brownies among others!

The two words, From Scratch, are truly what set Sweet Magnolia Bakery apart from the rest and Haylee upholds her standards to provide fresh, handmade, from scratch treats - always!

Word-of-mouth from happy customers have allowed Sweet Magnolia Bakery to expand to two fabulous locations in order to better serve the community. Satisfied customer Linda says, “Went in to get something special for my husband's birthday...staff was extremely nice and helpful with picking out a yummy treat. I got him a carrot cake cupcake; said it was the best he ever had. We also purchased a gluten free chocolate with raspberry filling, a yellow cake with strawberry champagne filling; both with butter cream frosting. A note to remember,  always allow them to come up to room temperature so the butter softens. So good! Made with top notch ingredients. Not your average bakery. Plus it was great to have some gluten free options!”

“I love this new bakery, great location and style. My husband is British and he always complains that we don’t have "real" bakeries here” says Sarah. “He was impressed by the quality and made-from-scratch recipes. Love the soups and sandwiches. Perfect all in one stop for lunch, treats, birthday or wedding cakes and elegant desserts for your dinner party. We will definitely be back often.”

Chris raves, “I've been to a lot of bakeries before,  and trust me when you see my belly you will know this to be true.  They not only have baked goods but they make excellent soup and sandwiches too. I wish I would have known about Sweet Magnolia Bakery before I got married, because I would have not wasted my time going to eight different other  bakeries to do cake tastings. I would have just made the decision to get a cake with these good folks. Excellent customer service with a smile.  I from here on out will buy all my baked goods including any family or friends birthday cakes. Absolutely to die for!”

At Sweet Magnolia  Bakery you can truly taste the difference. The creativity, imagination, and passion that goes into every menu item gives Sweet Magnolia Bakery a type of sweet baked magic that can be seen and tasted! Don't miss out on this sweetness!

Sweet Magnolia Bakery is located in Westchase at 10112 Montague Street and in St. Pete at 1961 4th Street North. They are closed on Mondays.
