Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth: At just 19 years old, the Orchard Park Native already owns her own bakery after her homemade sweets essentially went viral! She started with making cookie at home, experimenting with different recipes, making incremental tweaks and trying to craft something unique. While going to school as well as working at Delta sonic and bringing her cookies in regularly, they eventually made themselves to Delta Sonic’s director of food service. After trying Kaylena’s cookies, company executives made the decision to have her, then a 17 year old, supply cookies to all their locations. Kaylena’s second break came when Russ Salvatore tired her cannolis. She ended up supplying him with cannoli mix and cheesecakes until Salvatore’s hired a new pastry chef. Other wholesale accounts followed and that run of success led to the opening of Kaylena’s Bakery. Give your tastebuds a treat they will never forget and try them for yourself at Kaylena Marie’s Bakery, located in Orchard Park at 4236 N Buffalo Street.
