Founder Orran Booher, began baking Christmas cakes as a teenager in Kingston Jamaica where he grew up. His Christmas cakes became so popular that he started to outsell his talented baker mom who taught him this trade. At the age of twenty, he moved to the United States and raised his cake game to include decadent fondant-style cakes and European-style desserts so he could express his artistic ability. Fast forward more than a decade and patrons can now find miniature versions of Orran’s artistic cake work in the form of cupcakes at his pastry shop Baker Dude at The Beacon Atlanta. Orran shared, “After years of baking birthday cakes for colleagues and family, it was a no-brainer to bag corporate life and lead with my passion — art. I’m a strong creative so there is nothing I would rather do than use my art and tasty cupcakes to make our guests smile. Right now, our world can use all the happy it can get — my goal is to provide that to anyone who comes to our new stall.” Guests will find “more than just frosting” at the Baker Dude. The pastry pro will offer an array of savory and sweet creations in addition to cupcakes such as the Bou-Cake, a beautiful, seven cupcake bouquet. Menu items include, Super Ah-Vocado Toast, the must-have Farmer’s Market Egg Wrap, Classic Quiches, mouth-watering Plum Galettes, scrumptious blondies and an array of vegan, gluten-free, keto, and paleo treats.
