SWEET MAGNOLIAS

OUR BAKE SHOPS

Sweet Magnolias Bake Shop is a boutique bakery specializing in perfectly crafted, melt-in-your-mouth confections. We don't just bake desserts. We pour our hearts into them. From our buttery, soft cinnamon rolls to our signature Brown Sugar Cardamom cake, each recipe is expertly developed to both inspire the palate and evoke a sense of delicious nostalgia - to strike a perfect balance between imaginative and timeless. Most importantly, we use from-scratch ingredients and make every item by hand in our little kitchens, so you can feel good knowing exactly where and who your food comes from. Visit us at our two Omaha locations: our flagship bake shop located in the historic Joslyn Castle neighborhood and our Millwork bake + cake shop located in vibrant Millwork Commons District.

Hi!, I'm

KATINA TALLEY

Owner, recipe developer, head baker.

Growing up in a foodcentric household in rural Nebraska, my passion for delicious food was ignited at a young age. I learned my way around the kitchen alongside my mother, father, and grandma Jean and quickly found purpose and joy in sharing food with people I love. At the age of 14, I dipped my toe into the world of food service, learning the ropes of the kitchen at my local country club. I've worked in the industry, in one form or another, ever since.

 

After leaving home, my passion for culinary exploration continued to grow as I earned a degree in Food Science & Technology at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln and intensified as I began my career as a Food Scientist in the Conagra Brands bakery lab. My tenure at Conagra included stints developing food products for brands such as Marie Callender's, Hunt's Tomatoes, and Peter Pan Peanut Butter, but ultimately I found a road back to my true passion - baking - when I opened Sweet Mags in 2016.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Am I able to come into the bakery and purchase pastries?

Yes, we stock our cases with heaps of pastries every morning and would love to have you visit us in store.

Am I able preorder pastries so I know you will have what I want?

Yes, we offer online preorder for all our Sweet Mags staples. You can always add seasonal and/or specialty items when you pick up in-store.

How far in advance do I need to place my custom order?

Two to three weeks in advance is a good rule of thumb! Some items require less notice and some seasons are busier than others, so lead times can widely vary. Send us an email to enquire!

Do you offer delivery?

Unfortunately due to the small size of our staff, we are unable to offer delivery to individual clients. Delivery may be an option for select catering orders exceeding $200, depending on date and our availability. Delivery fees apply. Delivery is available for wedding orders.

 

What if I need to cancel an order?

Orders can be cancelled for a full refund up to two weeks prior to your scheduled pickup date. Orders cancelled within two weeks of pickup may be eligible for store credit. Once your order is prepared by our staff, we are not able to provide a refund. Sorry!

I don't like my cake, can I have a refund?

While we strive to make delicious, crowd-pleasing cakes, cake flavor and texture is subjective, and we understand our cakes might not be for everyone. If you have a complaint regarding your cake, please reach out immediately. You may qualify for a replacement cake or full or partial store credit if the product is brought back within 24 hours and the quality of the cake is determined to not meet our standards. Quality determination is solely at the discretion of Sweet Mags. Please understand that we cannot issue refunds for cakes that were not picked up on the date specified or were consumed more than 24 hours after pickup. We also cannot provide refunds for cakes that have already been completely eaten.  Store credits of any kind will not be issued to customers who do not contact us within 48 hours. 

Do you offer gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan options?

We do! We offer a small selection of gluten free and vegan options in our stores daily and gf/df/v cakes and pastries by custom order. Please note that while we offer products made with gluten-free and dairy-free ingredients and utilize thorough sanitation practices, our kitchen is small and the equipment is shared. The possibility of cross-contamination exists. Sweet Mags is not liable for any discomfort or illness from contaminants or allergens.
