Our Story

About Us

We have been baking and decorating since 2006. We pride ourselves on our dense cake and heavy cream textures. Our gourmet desserts have been created using a variety of techniques gathered from around the globe.  Our buttercream artists have developed recipes with influences from time spent baking in Australian cafes, commercial grocers, and mom and pop shops in the Midwest. All cakes are made from scratch and brought with love from our oven to your home and family.

Bluebird Cakery humbly started from a small farmer’s market stand in the summer of 2014 in Faribault Minnesota. We had a very warm welcome to the Faribault community and 1 year later we launched a Kickstarter campaign that resulted in raising over $29,000 to aid us in opening our own store front and kitchen in downtown Faribault MN. Sincerely, thank you to all our supporters.

Since then we opened a second store front in Mankato Minnesota where we continue our pursuit of delicioiusness!
