Erika Bailey decided this year it was time to take a leap and leave her corporate career for cupcakes.
The result is Bailey's Bakery, which opened in the former Empire Cafe on Main Street last week.
Bailey, of Stamford, Vt., was approved by the Planning Board in July but it took awhile to prepare the space inside Keith Bona's Berkshire Emporium into a bakery. The bakery now has ovens and display cases and coffee from Shelburne Falls Coffee Roasters. There's still some tables to get in place for when people stop for muffin and a coffee.
She plans on having a changing variety of baked goods — cupcakes, muffins, whoopie pies, pastries, brownies, cookies and other goodies. Gluten-free goods may also be available and she takes orders including for cakes.
This and many other stories are available to read at iBerkshires.Com now.
