Katy’s Baked Goods Brings Cookies, Cakes, Fudge and More to Downtown

Although it was a summer in arriving, Katy’s Baked Goods is open for business at 429 Lawrence Ave.

The establishment adds a bakery to the growing list of downtown businesses. Katy’s celebrated it’s grand opening with an Ellwood City Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, October 31.

933416_origKaty Mook-McGrath, an Ellwood resident, has sold baked goods for years at the Farmer’s Market and at the urging of her customers, she decided to open a bakery.

McGrath emphasizes small batch, home-style baking and makes nothing in mass quantity. She uses real ingredients, such as vanilla beans, real butter, and whole milk and buys many of her products locally. Some of her ingredients even come from her garden. McGrath also specializes in a variety of gluten free goodies.

Katy’s Baked Goods teamed up with two other desert-themed businesses, Custom Cakes by Jodie, and AI Fudge, to share the building, although all three businesses operate separately. Jodie O’Connor, also an Ellwood resident, creates magnificent custom specialty-theme cakes and cupcakes. Monica Ide, who also has an A1 Fudge shop in Pittsburgh, sells a variety of delectable fudges.

cakesMcGrath and O’Connor, both residents of Ellwood, love the small town support they get and are pleased to be part of a growing downtown business district.

Katy’s Baked Goods is open Monday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Tuesday and Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. to noon, and Sunday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. They are closed on Thursdays.

However, the bakery may be open for additional hours at times, so if the open sign is out, customers are welcome. In addition, the bakery will be open for downtown community events.
