OUR BAKE SHOP
Located in Omaha's historic Joslyn Castle neighborhood, 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 kitchen, so you can feel good knowing exactly where and who your food comes from.
KATINA TALLEY FOSTER
Sweet Magnolias Bake Shop is owned and operated by Katina Talley Foster, with the help of her husband, Josh. Both rural Nebraska natives, the two met and fell in love after moving to Omaha to begin their careers. The couple long shared the dream of opening a small, local business. Being an avid home baker, Katina had her heart set on a little bake shop.
Growing up in a foodcentric household, Katina learned to cook and bake alongside her mother, father, and grandmother. Her passion for culinary exploration continued to grow as she pursued a degree in Food Science & Technology at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln and intensified as she began her career as a Food Scientist in the ConAgra Foods bakery lab. Subsequently, Katina developed products for popular brands such as Marie Callenders, Hunts Tomatoes, and Peter Pan Peanut Butter, but ultimately found a road back to her true passion - baking.
