SARATOGA SPRINGS — Local business Indulgence Bakery celebrated the opening of its first storefront location this week at a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce.
Indulgence Bakery offers cakes, cupcakes, cookies and more, baking indulgent treats for life’s sweetest moments.
“I’ve just always loved creating desserts and I love creating custom desserts and pretty things for everyone’s celebrations,” said Alex Gaertner, the owner and creator of Indulgence Bakery.
Gaertner originally started the business in 2020, and it has been growing ever since. Earlier this year, the bakery moved into 63 Putnam St. Rear in downtown Saratoga Springs and opened its space to the public.
“Now we have this brick and mortar store and people can come in and get some treats, in addition to all of the events that we still bake for and love to do,” Gaertner said.
The recent ribbon cutting celebration was a big moment for the local entrepreneur.
“I’ve been dreaming about this moment since before I can remember,” she said during the ceremony. “It’s surreal and it’s amazing.”
Indulgence Bakery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, as well as by appointment or pre-order only on Tuesday and Wednesday.
