New: Dizzy Dame's Bake Shoppe

Posted By on Thu, Mar 1, 2012 at 12:00 PM

Food educator and long-time pastry chef Rene Luedeman was pushing a shopping cart through a local grocery store when the first dizzy spell hit. More were to follow and she was eventually diagnosed with a balance disorder that resulted from inner-ear damage.

As a scientist for 20 years and a teacher for Pima Community College's culinary-arts program, she was used to spending most of her time on her feet, but that was now out of the question. But she could make cakes, and stunningly beautiful ones at that.

So she and her husband Terril Yuhas put their heads together and came up with the custom-cake shop Dizzy Dame's Bake Shoppe, which operates out of their home and only takes custom orders for the time being.

Luedeman - who also founded the local nonprofit Cakes for Causes - currently makes cookies, fruit pies, cakes and caramel apples, but the sky is the limit. There are some stipulations on what she can sell because the business is based in her home, but decades teaching food safety and cake decorating seem to be coming in rather handy as the orders keep coming in.

There's more on the Dizzy Dame's Bake Shoppe over here.
