Goodies with love baked in

As a child, Sheree Ackerman loved to spend time in the kitchen baking with her grandmother Goldie, who she affectionately called Bubbie.

Ackerman enjoyed baking so much, that she knew from an early age she wanted to become a pastry chef.

"My whole life, I've never seen myself doing anything else," Ackerman said.

After completing her bachelor's degree in baking and pastry arts and food service management at Johnson & Wales University in Miami, Ackerman returned home to Tampa and opened Goldie's Goodies Bakery in Carrollwood. The bakery is named in honor of her grandmother, who passed away 14 years ago.

"She was my whole inspiration behind the entire bakery," Ackerman said. "She was really the inspiration why I even love to bake."

Goldie's Goodies Bakery features cupcakes, cookies, pies and cakes in a variety of flavors and styles. Ackerman uses recipes passed down from her grandmother, as well as her own recipes, including one for buttercream frosting.

Ackerman also does custom cakes for occasions such as weddings and birthdays.

"My number one thing I love to do is custom cakes," Ackerman said.

Also skilled in sugar and chocolate work, Ackerman plans to eventually incorporate these elements into her bakery items as well.

"I'm really trying to bring something new and different," Ackerman said.

Goldie's Goodies Bakery is located at 5305 Ehrlich Road, Unit 104, in Carrollwood. The bakery is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. It is closed Sunday and Monday.
