About Me:

My name is Shelly Carpenter and I reside in Kingsbury, NY with my husband and two boys. I have been baking professionally since 2007 and started learning far before that. I joke that I have no other skills than making delicious desserts----it's really NOT a joke.



Homespun is my home based baking business that I started after many requests from mostly family and friends.  It allows me to continue my passion outside of my day job(which is also baking!) while also being available to my family.  I love creating edible pieces of art that allow memories to be made on special occasions.


I pride myself on making everything from scratch using quality ingredients, as it should be.  I use an Italian meringue buttercream on all of my cakes and cupcakes, that I find to be the perfect amount of sweetness without being too sweet.  Special requests are always welcomed.  I will do everything I can to accommodate you.
