Baked, located near the center of Holden, is a family run, from scratch establishment. Elena Viapiano is the owner and pastry chef of Baked Bakery. Elena graduated from Wachusett Regional High School in 2013 and made her way up to Montpelier, Vermont to attend The New England Culinary Institute where she graduated with a degree in Baking & Pastry in 2016. During life Elena was always surrounded by baking & cooking. From being in her great grandmothers kitchen to working side by side with her father at his restaurant. Elena found a passion for baking & the restaurant industry at a young age. During her high school years she enrolled in the Restaurant Management Program which lead her to earning a scholarship for college. In her college career she did 2 different interships where she expaned her career as a pastry chef. At the age of 19 her father came to her about the idea of her taking over the family restaurant. At that point in her life she wanted the restaurant but didn’t want to give up her dream of being a pastry chef and owning her own bakery in the future. And thats how Baked came about, adding a bakery to the restaurant was the perfect solution. She could do what she loved but also be able to take over the family restaurant within the coming years. In Feburary of 2016 is when Baked first opened & Elena’s crazy jouney began.
Baked is a small from scratch custom bakery specializing in cakes for any occasion, breads, cookies & sweet pastries. Elena loves to create her customers ideas, she will work with you to create anything you’d like.
