Old School Bakery opens in HuntingburgJanuary 8, 2014
From Herald Staff Reports
HUNTINGBURG — Certified pastry chef Catherine Bramlett has opened Old School Bakery at 302 E. Fourth St.
Affiliated with Old School CafÃ©, the bakery offers fresh-baked doughnuts, cupcakes, turnovers and cookies and fresh-brewed coffee, mochas, lattes and cappuccinos and takes orders for custom cakes, cookies and pastries. The bakery also supplies desserts for the cafÃ©.
Bramlett graduated with cum laude honors from Sullivan University, Louisville, in March 2012 with an associate’s degree in baking and pastry arts. She is assisted by Sandy Ahlemeier, owner of Old School CafÃ©, and Ahlemeier’s daughter, Natalie Ahlemeier.
Before beginning her journey as a pastry chef, Bramlett was a sociology student at the University of Southern Indiana and a waitress at Old School CafÃ©. After changing her career path and completing her pastry studies, she returned to the cafÃ© to make desserts. It took just two weeks for the idea of opening a bakery linked to the cafÃ© to take hold.
“We were making all of these wonderful desserts for the cafÃ© Â— pies, decorated Halloween cookies, turnovers — and I was getting cake orders almost as soon as I returned to the cafÃ©,” said Bramlett, who specializes in cake decorating. “Opening a bakery just made sense.”
For special orders, Bramlett works in tandem with customers, browsing the Internet for photographs she can draw from to create the cakes, cookies and other desserts they envision. She molds fondant by hand to create scenes or make a cake look like a perfectly wrapped present.
“Old School Bakery is a great place for events such as wedding parties, birthday parties or just meeting up with an old friend for a doughnut and some coffee,” Bramlett said.
Old School Bakery is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 4, the bakery will be open from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. The phone number is 639-9012 and the email address is here. The bakery can also be found on Facebook.
