Petra Waltraud Lauxen Vigil was raised in a small town in Germany called Kliding. As a young child, she enjoyed watching her mother bake. Through observation and direct instruction, she learned the basics of cooking, which turned in to a passion for baking.
When Petra was 18 years old, she purchased her first baking book, which she still uses today for several of her recipes. She has always
enjoyed baking for family and friends, and always had a strong desire to own her own bakery.
Petra started selling her baked goods at local Farmer’s Markets and can still be found there every weekend. Her baked goods can also be found in some grocery stores, or you can order directly from her online.
Can be found here:
- Cache Valley Gardener’s Market
- Wheeler Farmers Market
- Lee’s Marketplace – North Salt Lake
- The Store – Holladay
- The Store – Salt Lake City
I met her at a bazaar this past Friday and bought a few of her baked goods. They were beyond fantastic. Will be buying more. She is also a fantastic person to talk too and love her accent.
Love Petra, love everything she does! Especially the Mandarin cheese cake.
Delicious and fresh pastries.
