Saltadena is a licensed home bakery owned and operated by Nancy Stuart in downtown Bellingham, Washington. Since its establishment in 2016, the goal of Saltadena has and always will be to create beautiful food that tastes absolutely delicious.
I strongly feel that you just can't beat a homemade baked good, and with the exception of some of our topping choices (i.e. Oreos or Fruity Pebbles), all items are made from scratch in small batches. From scaling out the ingredients at the beginning to smoothing out that last dollop of frosting, your cake is carefully crafted by one person. No large assembly line, no shipping from a mystery location. Everything is done right here in downtown Bellingham. When possible, I strive to highlight local purveyors that produce right here in the Pacific Northwest. This includes Fresh Breeze Organic Dairy, Shepherd's Grain Flour, Stiebrs Farms Eggs and Jacobsen Salt, just to name a few.
In addition to taste, I care deeply for aesthetics. I grew up with a fierce love for art (specifically drawing), and it makes me so incredibly happy that I have a job where I can apply techniques I learned back in art class. Whether it's creating balance or beautiful color contrast, or even something more complex like adding dimension into a watercolor design, I put a lot of care into each creation as though it were a small piece of edible art I'm sending out into the world.
Professionally, I have been baking and decorating cakes for over 4 years, most of that experience being a decorator at one of the busiest Whole Foods locations in the entire company. On busy days, I would sometimes decorate between 40-50 cakes.
Thank you for visiting our website! I very much look forward to hearing from you.
