She is known for creating signature breads for the finest restaurants in Charleston. Eileen also bakes all wedding and occasion cakes for our clients.

Starting the year with an intimate wedding. Late afternoon natural light gives this simple little cake a beautiful glow. ✨
We filled a lot of orders for these today. They are a Charleston tradition, whipped Cream cakes. It started with Bullwinkel's Bakery downtown, moved to The Pig on Meeting, and then to The Pig in Summerville.
One customer today told us they've ordered these every Christmas since 1969. We've been a part of their family's Christmas and LOTS of other families' Christmases for a long time. We're happy to celebrate with y'all. Merry Christmas! 🎄🎅
Loving these vintage inspired cakes! A specialty linen was a perfect compliment to the decorations and a beautiful way to set off the cake.#ashleybakery #charlestonweddingcake #charlestonwedding #charleston #vintagewedding

I don't know about you, but I could use S'more sleep this morning! 🤣 I'll take the trade off for an extra hour of sunshine later this afternoon.
These S'mores mini cheesecakes would be a great way to end the day.#daylightsavings #ashleybakerycharleston #charlestonbakery #westashley #bakery #customorder #minicheesecake #dessertbar #charlestonwedding #smores
