La Cakerie has only been open for just more than a month, but the downtown Towson bakery already has some big changes in store.
Owner Jason Hisley, a Parkville resident who won Food Network’s Cupcake Wars in 2011, said Wednesday that the bakery will expand its space at 49 W. Chesapeake Avenue and introduce more savory menu items.
“We’re looking to do more of a bakery, cafe vibe,” said Hisley, who noted that fresh baked artisanal breads will remain the core of the business.
New savory selections include pretzel dogs, soups and breakfast sandwiches. The cafe, which has free wireless internet, will also start providing espresso-based beverages.
“We’re ever-evolving to give our customers what they want,” Hisley said. “We want [La Cakerie] to become a regular Towson spot.”
Additionally, a La Cakerie food truck will hit the streets within the next several months. The truck will feature prepackaged goods.
“I’ve always loved to come to Towson,” he said. “Now its become my life.”
The Cupcake Wars episode featuring Hisley is airing Thursday at 5 p.m. and Friday at 3 p.m.,according to the Food Network website.
