Laura is the tea and sugar fueled baker behind Pie Patch Bakery, a home-based bakery here in Bandon. She was always an avid baker, but really took it to the next level during lockdown 1.0, when she had extra time on her hands and needed to keep her sanity. Out of that was born Pie Patch! She sells her cakes, pies, cheesecakes, cookies and cupcakes in Bandon Country Market every Friday and Saturday mornings. She grows lots of her own fruit and veg, so many of her dessert fillings come directly from her vegetable patch. Her baking is inspired by the American style of desserts, so you’d never know what she might whip up next!
