My Friend's Bakery started in the summer of 2008. Owner/pastry chef, Lara Vanasco had just given birth to her first child. She had decided that she wanted to find a way to balance family and work. Using her degree in baking and pastry arts from Johnson & Wales University and her past job experiences she decided to start a baked goods business. The business started out small making whoopie pies and cookies for local farm stands, then evolved into making birthday cakes and desserts for people, as well as wedding cakes. Now with the help of her husband, Lara is still the baker/decorator/pastry chef, while her husband, Dino is her business guru and delivery man.
Today My Friend's Bakery is a custom order bakery providing desserts, cakes, and pastries for all types of events. We are a fully licensed home based business located in Rochester, NH. Since our bakery opened we try to treat each customer like our "friend" and give them the personal attention and time that they deserve for each and every order.
