a recipe for success
Sugar. Flour. Eggs. Passion.
There's something to be said for having a little sweetness in every day. Why not make it a lifestyle?
Owner Alixe Ingoglia Hemerly did just that. A 2005 graduate of Hempfield HS, Alixe headed to Pittsburgh to attend one of the most fun years of her life. She graduated in 2006 from Le Cordon Bleu : Pennsylvania Culinary Institute with an Associate's Degree in Patisserie and Baking and returned to Central PA to continue living the dream. After acquiring a certification in mixology, Alixe began at Bully's Restaurant & Pub in 2007 as the pastry chef, bartender, hostess, server, and professional taste tester pretty much every night of the week. An incredible opportunity provided by the owner of Bully's (hi Dave!) led to the 2009 debut of The Flour Child bakery - located just across the street from Bully's. It's been a rollercoaster of a life since then, completing over 400 weddings and thousands of special orders in between. She is blessed to know her amazing parents, Kathie and Mark, and her husband Joe are along for the ride! With pastry chef, YTI grad, and irreplacable Liz Bechtold by her side, Alixe has created a little slice of heaven, tucked into a little shop in Columbia, PA.
We couldn't have gotten here without the incredible help from our favorites (LG!!! Erin, Ashmaline to name a few) and we cannot thank our family, friends, fans, and fanatics for the ongoing support and the neverending love.
Life is truly delicious.
