Desserts by Angie, a wholesale bakery operating in Kansas City, Kan., expanded today to start offering online ordering nationwide.
Owner Angie Sims said customers may now visit the bakery’s website at www.shop.dessertsbyangie.com to have desserts shipped outside of the Kansas City area.
Located at 1220 N. 79th St., the bakery provides cakes, cookies, pastries, breads and other items to food service businesses, organizations and individuals in the Kansas City area. The bakery takes telephone and online orders from customers, and in the summer it will open to walk-in customers on Fridays, starting in June.
Sims started her business at home and opened a factory location in January 2012.
A graduate of Sumner Academy with a business degree from Central Missouri State University, Warrensburg, Sims named her signature cake, “Momma’s Strawberry Cake,” after a recipe from her mother, Mary Sims.
Angie Sims said all the baked goods are made from scratch with no preservatives. The baked goods for the nationwide expansion, including “Momma’s Strawberry Cake,” ship within one to two days of the order.
Sims said she was getting requests from friends and family to ship desserts to other cities, and after many tests, she is adding that service to her business.
“We’re excited about our new shipping division,” Sims said. “It took a lot of perseverance to get just the right product packaged just the right way, but we did it. Now we can put a smile on someone’s face 600 miles away.”
Another little change made in the bakery is that she has added wedding cakes to the products she makes locally, after many requests, she said.
The bakery has a separate menu for out-of-town shipping from its menu for in-town customers.
