Goodies with love baked in

Sheree Ackerman has opened Goldie's Goodies Bakery in Carrollwood.

Sheree Ackerman has opened Goldie's Goodies Bakery in Carrollwood.

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.

  1. Comedian and activist Dick Gregory dies at 84

    Nation

    The comedian Dick Gregory rose to national prominence in the early 1960s as a black satirist whose audacious style of humor was biting, subversive and topical, mostly centered on current events, politics and above all, racial tensions. His trademark was the searing punchline.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

  4. Bats come to life, but Rays' freefall continues (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
  5. 'Free speech rally' cut short after massive counterprotest

    Nation

    BOSTON — Thousands of demonstrators chanting anti-Nazi slogans converged Saturday on downtown Boston in a boisterous repudiation of white nationalism, dwarfing a small group of conservatives who cut short their planned "free speech rally" a week after a gathering of hate groups led to bloodshed in Virginia.

    Thousands of people march against a “free speech rally” planned Saturday in Boston. About 40,000 people were in attendance.
