My name is Ashley 

I am the owner and baker here at your favorite cottage food bakery in Caro, MI!  I have been baking for as long as I can remember.  Some of my favorite memories growing up are in the kitchen with my mom making birthday cakes for our loved ones.  

My journey into vegan desserts began in 2019 when our family needed to eliminate dairy and eggs from our diet due to health concerns. I was amazed that I could still make the treats I loved without including the ingredients that caused health issues...and they tasted great!  

I created Bake It Up Vegan Style in 2022 to solve two problems. 1) Accessibility to dairy-free and egg free baked goods in Tuscola County was limited.  2) I wanted a better work/life balance than my career as a clinical laboratory scientist provided. So, I quit my job and started to bring baked goods to the Caro Farmers Market.

We have grown since our first market two years ago! Not only have we traveled to several different markets, but we have expanded our menu with more flavors and desserts. We now offer treats made with a gluten free flour and have a few low sugar options!  In 2024, we are taking a pause on markets and focusing on the individual orders from you!
