FAIRFAX — The bakery at 127 S.E. 1st St., on East Main Street in downtown Fairfax, has a new owner and is open for business five days a week.

With help from her husband Robert Meyer of Apple Valley, Tina Castillo, formerly of St. Paul, opened the bakery Dec. 6. The business offers a variety of baked goods, including moca bars, cinnamon,  maple and peanut rolls among others, many types of donuts and cookies, and white, wheat or cinnamon crimp bread.

Custom cake and cupcake decorating is a specialty. Castillo made a marble cake with raspberry filling with a volleyball and net in neon colors for one of her customers.

Bake shop offerings include raised, cake and filled donuts, plain and decorated cookies, muffins, brownies, bars, loaves, buns, rolls and artisan breads, plus coffee, hot cocoa, tea, pop and water.

Last week’s donut of the week was a chocolate cherry donut. The week before that it was a caramel apple fritter. Other popular goods include dinner rolls, cinnamon apple muffins, and Bismarcks, packed with cherry filling, topped with chocolate icing and chocolate sprinkles.

Business hours are 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

After attending cooking school in the Twin Cities, Castillo worked at bakeries and cafes in metro area.
