Say hello to the latest addition to the Goldensquad, Amber! She is December’s Sweet of the Month and has been with Goldenrod since September.
Amber first fell in love with baking in middle school home-economics classes, where she quickly discovered she was most comfortable covered in flour with a whisk in hand. Since then, she has learned all her mad skills from observing and experimenting!
This Illinois-originating lass moved to Nebraska almost 10 years ago, but has only lived in Lincoln about 6 months. Her roommate introduced her to Goldenrod Pastries shortly after the bakery opened, and Amber swears that she “instantly fell in love.”
“There was something about the atmosphere and the genuine sense of belonging that you feel as soon as you walk in the door,” Amber said. “And it doesn’t hurt to be surrounded by some of the greatest women in Lincoln all day!”
Whenever she isn’t hunting down the newest coffee shop to feed her avid coffee love, she can be found being a good mom to her pets. Her 12-year-old beagle, Snoopy, and cat Stuart both love to cuddle like no other.
Back at home during the colder months, you can almost guarantee to find a crockpot of veggie chili. Amber loves to make a variety of roasted veggies and sweet potatoes are ALWAYS on the menu. As well as a baker, Amber is a licensed cosmetologist and enjoys working hair magic on family and friends in her free time!
Be sure to say ‘hi’ to Amber next time you’re in in the shop! You can find her baking behind the counter a few times a week, or snacking on a crumble bun – her favorite! – when off the clock. Amber is incredibly sweet, and we are so lucky to have her in the Goldenrod family.
