Fall is in full swing at 18 Carrot Bakery. Georgetown Square strollers may catch notes of pumpkin, apple or cherry pies; English toffee; caramel corn; homemade chocolates or the shop’s signature carrot cake.

Shari Cahil opened 18 Carrot Bakery in April after having success selling her carrot cakes at Georgetown market days.

“People loved it,” she said of her 80-year-old family recipe. “I hadn’t planned on opening a bakery, but this space became available, and it was a wonderful opportunity, so I took it.”

Everything at the bakery is made from scratch; no ingredients are frozen or from a box, Cahil said, adding that about 95% of her ingredients—butter, sugar, eggs, carrots for cakes and pumpkins for pies—are organic.

Pop in for an evolving variety of scones, cookies and breads. Cakes and pies are sold only by the slice for drop-in customers—the bakery requires a 48-hour notice for full cake and pie orders.

The bakery also launched a delivery service in November. Special to-go menus are available, and Cahil said the set-up is ideal for offices looking to order in cookies, cakes or pies, for example.

Pre-ordering for Thanksgiving began Nov. 1. Cahil urged customers to consider a pumpkin caramel cheesecake with homemade English toffee on top, or three versions of pecan pie: Southern, chocolate or bourbon.

Hostess Thanksgiving gift baskets are also new this year at 18 Carrot. The collection of aesthetically appealing baked goods is a great contribution to bring if invited to a dinner, Cahil said. Each basket costs $50 and includes a hand towel that reads “Georgetown, Texas” and has the bakery’s carrot logo depicted as a cornucopia. Holiday hostess gift baskets will also be available later this season.

Need some carbs for dinner as well as dessert? Cahil teaches about four pasta and potsticker classes every month. Check the website for dates and times.

“I love to bake,” Cahil said. “The business just keeps growing, and I’m having a great time.”
