Couple opens bakery in Connellsville

A husband and wife who baked deserts for fun have opened their own bakery in Connellsville.

Mike Casey and his wife were in the craft business for many years, but recently retired. They became tired of all the traveling involved with that business.

However, since they enjoyed making baked goods in their kitchen to give out to friends and family for years, they decided to buy a small building and open their own bakery.

"Now we have the time to try something new," Casey said.

Casey's Cakes and Cookies opened March 15 on West Crawford Avenue to sell all "fresh-made and never-frozen" baked goods from scratch.

Those goods includes cookies, cakes, pies, baked donuts, pepperoni rolls, bear claws, apple strudel, apple turnovers, cupcakes, cakes, breads, buns and "a little bit of everything," Casey said.

Casey added that some of their specialties include orange cookies, orange blossoms, ladylocks and wedding cakes.

Customers can call and make specialty orders. "If we don't carry what the customer wants, we'll try to accommodate them," Casey said.

Still a young operation, Casey said the best part of having a bakery in Connellsville is meeting the people in the neighborhood and hearing that having a bakery is something good for the area.

"They said, 'Finally a bakery in Connellsville,'" Casey said.

The planned hours for Casey's Cakes and Cookies are 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; and closed on Mondays.

Casey said the hours are flexible and could change depending on customer volume.
