Hometown Desserts began in 2007 as a business that sup- plied cake for family and friends. The foundation, however, was laid 50 years ago when owner, Cindy Tutterow was born into a family of southern women who loved to cook. As a child, Cindy spent many days standing in a chair, pushed up to the kitchen counter, watching as her mother and grandmothers lovingly created delicious meals. In the summertime, Cindy, along with her mother, grandmother and sisters would sit around the kitchen table and peel peaches in preparation for canning or grate fresh coconuts to make homemade cakes. These are the special times that shaped the enjoyment she has for creating her own homemade treats today.
Over the years of Cindy’s dedicated and hard work, Hometown Desserts has grown into a thriving company that pro-
vides delicious desserts to wholesale and retail cus-
tomers in the Bradenton/Sarasota area. Great care is
given to developing and perfecting each dessert –
many of which started in a southern kitchen years
ago. New restaurant clients include the Anna Maria
Oyster Bar Group, The Chiles Group Restaurants,
Ocean Star, Gulf Drive Café, The General Store and
The Feast. Do call them for any wedding cake ideas
as well. During a recent conversation Cindy told me thatherweddingcakebusinessisverystrong as
events are coming in on a regular basis. Great news!
Enjoy their signature dessert, a key lime coconut cake which is offered at the above local restaurants. Cindy and her crew also offer delicious fresh baked scones.
