Create Bake Love

by Steve Gamel

Ashley Manalansan still hadn’t finished unpacking boxes from her family’s move from Houston to Lantana in November when she finally gave an eager friend permission to let everyone know there’s a new cake boss in town. To be clear, Ashley wouldn’t dream of referring to herself as a cake boss, cookie boss, or even a cupcake lady. But she’s extremely talented, and as the story goes, her friend was so elated they’d be living in the same community after all these years that she took to social media as quickly as she could. “She kept asking, ‘Can I post something now? Can I post something now?’” Ashley said with a laugh. “She was doing it because she’s such a sweet friend, but we weren’t even done unpacking. I finally gave her permission; it was a nice post.” Ashley added, “I’m just a one-woman show. I’m still trying to get back up to speed.”

CreateBakeLove is a home-based bakery that already has close to 1,200 likes on Facebook and specializes in custom, highly personalized cookie, cake, and cupcake orders for any occasion. Take a look on Facebook, and you’ll see everything from cakes shaped like a unicorn, delicious cookies that could be mistaken for LEGOS characters, and more. A generational baker who picked up tricks from her mother and grandmother, Ashley has a penchant for creating something unique and over-the-top creative. She can match her treats to your invitations, theme, and even ideas you saw online and want to bring to life. “I’m still getting settled in and should be full strength again soon,” Ashley said. “It’s been neat taking in all the inquiries.”
