Ten months ago, Suzanne Eggli launched a bakery she had envisioned for a long time. She had long gotten praise for her homemade carrot cake and other goodies, so she wondered if her 30 years as a baker of sweet delights would be a good business model. As it turns out, it is.
From their launch date in 2019 of The Shredded Carrot, 2428 W. Valley Blvd., Suzanne and her two sons Brent and Jonah began serving favorites like chocolate cake, varieties of cheese cake, pineapple upside down cake, layered tres leche, and Salvadorian quesadilla. Since then they have refined and expanded their offerings and updated the recipes. All their sweets are made in the small kitchen in back from scratch and overseen by Suzanne.
Their blueberry muffins in particular have benefited from the increased attention and love. Further, they now serve cake by the slice. So early morning customers on their way to work can grab a slice and a cup of Don Raúl Colombia Coffee and be on their way. But that’s not all. There are muffins, cookies, brownies, cake pops, cupcakes, and bread puddings, tarts, and pies (try the key lime pie, a popular favorite). And get this. They even sell dog treats that are sure to please your canine friends. If you are vegan, gluten free, or keto, or all three, there is plenty to choose from, including key lime pie (vegan, gluten free), plum and vanilla custard tarts (vegan, gluten free), pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies (keto), dark chocolate raspberry cups (keto), and much more.
The Shredded Carrot also bakes custom-ordered cakes for birthdays, weddings, quinceañeras, gender reveal, and other events. Suzanne’s son Jonah, who alternates with his brother Brent working behind the counter, said the operation has become more organized as they have learned the business.
