After 10 years, the Hutto-based treat shop baked'nsconed continues to serve its signature scones and baked goods made from scratch.

The past

Owner Tiffany Anders opened the bakery with her family in 2013. Before that, the Texas native was a pastry chef at Bistro M in McAllen, where she first began experimenting with scone recipes.

"When we first got to Hutto, there was nothing really here in terms of restaurants. But because of that, I was able to build relationships with the city, catering with the police and fire department, and with the schools," Anders said.

The menu

Baked'nsconed offers cookies, croissants and uniquely flavored scones on a daily basis, from lemon blueberry and cinnamon snickerdoodle to white chocolate peppermint for the winter.

The menu also includes breakfast sandwiches, paninis and fresh salads with several coffee drink options. The drive-thru window is open daily, except on Sundays.

Occasionally, the bakery will cater for special events and create customized birthday cakes.

The present

Anders said one of the biggest challenges she's faced in recent years is food price inflation.

"It's been hard to keep up with. ... Some things haven't changed much, like coffee, but for others, it felt like I had to keep changing prices every few days," Anders said.

Quote of note

"You asked why people come here instead of chains like Starbucks—it's peaceful, there's no loud music, it's calm, service is quick. This is what Hutto is all about," said Claire Appleton, who's been a baked'nsconed customer for three years.

The future

While Anders said she hopes to keep coming up with new pastry recipes, she is not planning a second location just yet.

"We have a lot of regulars that have supported us over the years, but we are still recouping from the pandemic," Anders said.
