photoFor 20 years, Barbara Robin was a stay-at-home mom who loved baking for her family. One day, she decided she was ready for something different.

“I wanted to be able to help people by using the knowledge of what I knew about cake decorating, and help get amazing products to our town, while making new friends along the way,” Robin said. “So God knew my heart’s desire, and I opened A Baker’s Choice in July of 2010.”

The business continues to grow, with exciting moments like joining the Chamber of Commerce and when the Food Network’s Bronwen Weber held a few classes one weekend in April. Weber’s visit is Robin’s favorite memory so far at A Baker’s Choice.

The Lafayette, Louisiana store is unique in that it is the only store in town that is dedicated completely to sugar art supplies. They also offer advanced cake decorating classes.

Robin loves many aspects of being the owner of A Baker’s Choice.

“The best thing about this business is meeting all the wonderful, sweet people in the image (7)baking world and building a relationship with them and their families,” Robin said. “And they just love showing me all their cake pictures.”

A Baker’s Choice has been purchasing from CK Products for three years. Robin said they love everything they get from CK, but if they had to narrow it down, their favorites would be buttercream icing, fillings and Disco Dust.

“The icing is amazing,” Robin said. “The fillings are always fresh, and the Disco Dust is so sparkly and makes everything ‘pop!’”

Robin is especially grateful to her CK Products customer service representative, Star Johnson. She even hopes to make a trip to Indiana one day to meet her.

“I really could not have made it this far in my business without all her help,” Robin said.
