Front Page Profile: Hart Bakery Puts the Heart in Baking

Hart Bakery is a full line bakery that has been serving up the best cakes, cookies, doughnuts, breads, pastries, and brownies in town for many years. In 1946, “Uncle Joe” started the bakery after returning from World War II. Sandy Taylor, the current owner, came to work for him after training with Martha and Wesley Wilton in 1968. The Taylors bought the bakery in 1992. Now, Sandy’s son Dan, and daughter-in-law Cherice, a graduate of the Art Institute of Indianapolis, work at Hart Bakery.  Recently, Hart Bakery added 1,500 square feet of working space to the building. Hart is the third oldest independent bakery in Indianapolis.
Sandy is a Certified Master Baker, and her son Dan is a graduate of the American Institute of Baking and the Kelly School of Business. They have carried on the tradition of great handmade baked goods you can’t get anywhere else, such as Uncle Joe’s melt-in-your-mouth Butter Cookies, Princess Bars, Crown Bread, Salt Risen Bread, and much more. They are also known for their fantastic doughnuts, eclairs, glazed croissants, coffee cakes, and bear claws. They also make stunning wedding cakes and special occasion cakes. Everything is made fresh, with no preservatives or chemicals. fudgehartsbakery2013
Earlier this year, Hart Bakery introduced gourmet, handmade fudge to their lengthy list of treats. Check out the Tiger Stripe, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Pecan, or any of the over 200 seasonal flavors by the square or by the pound — it also makes a great gift for the holidays. Selections change frequently, so stop in  regularly to see what’s new.
Hart Bakery and Gifts also has one of the biggest and best selections of gift items and one-of-a-kind collectibles in the Indianapolis area. They feature Precious Moments, Jim Shore, Painted Ponies, Steiff, Alexander, John R. Wright dolls and animals, Limoges boxes, and Ginny Dolls.
