The Bottom Line:

Bake My Day's specialty is custom cakes for weddings and events, but they're also a favorite among locals for their coffee, pastries, and brunch options, served on weekdays. Professional pastry chefs craft every dish in-house, from scratch; no mixes to be found here. Expect mouthwatering flavor and a professional finish on each item you order, from the smallest scones to the largest wedding cakes.

There’s a reason Bake My Day has been featured by Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, and Best in Destin, among others–and it has everything to do with flavor, style, and service. Whether you’re planning a destination wedding or another event or just popping in for a cup of high-end coffee and scones, Bake My Day has you covered. Known locally for top-notch custom cakes, Bake My Day’s pastry chefs excel at crafting their edible artwork fresh in-house every day. Though they’re typically only open on weekdays (except by appointment), you can’t go wrong stopping in when they’re open for a cup of coffee and a souffle, scone, or another confection.

Wedding Cakes
Bake My Day offers free consultations by appointment to craft the wedding cake that will wow you and your guests. They have a reputation for creating stunning cakes based on a huge range of sources of inspiration. Whether you know exactly what you want but can’t figure out how to articulate it, aren’t sure what you want but have a Pinterest board of cake inspo, or have a photo or theme you’d like echoed in your cake’s design (and flavors), Bake My Day’s chefs are remarkably good at hitting the mark every time. They also create stunning themed groom’s cakes and love taking on new creative challenges.

Special Occasion Cakes
Birthdays, retirements, baby showers, anniversaries–life’s biggest moments are often deliciously commemorated with cake on hand. No matter what you’re celebrating or what unique cake you have in mind, Bake My Day is probably up for the task. Their themed cakes are delicious, impeccably finished jaw-droppers every time.

Brunch/Lunch Offerings
Though Bake My Day doesn’t have a fixed menu posted online, you’ll find a spacious, beautifully-filled chalkboard with the day’s offerings when you step in for breakfast or lunch. A full range of espresso drinks, pastries, and lunch options will keep everyone in the group happy. Take it from us: the souffle and scones are particularly mouthwatering favorites, but you can’t go wrong with pretty much anything on the menu. Just make sure to check the store’s hours before you go; because they’re a full-service bakery as well, Bake My Day has more limited hours than traditional coffee/brunch stops.

Bake My Day is located in downtown Destin just off Harbor Drive, in a shopping center right beside Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park. It’s a convenient stop when shopping or running errands in the area.

Insider Tips:
– Bake My Day’s space for cake reservations fills up quickly, so if you’re looking for a cake for your wedding or event, reserve your date as far in advance as possible.
– Bake My Day makes its own chocolate syrup in-house. It gives hot chocolate, chocolate milk, and mochas that over-the-top gourmet touch.
