Our Story

Welcome To The Oven Mitt!

I am a lakeshore local who has had a love for baking and pastry arts all of my life.  The first 12 years of my professional career, I served the community working as a paramedic in Holland, Michigan. This was a very rewarding career and helped shape me into who I am today.  Finding a balance between my medical profession and love for the kitchen, I made customized cakes and sweets out of my home.  In 2014, I decided to further pursue my passion for baking by obtaining a degree in Pastry Arts from The Culinary Institute of Michigan.  Only a few short months after graduation, I decided to make my lifelong dream come true by opening my own bakery.  On February 10, 2017, The Oven Mitt opened its doors to the public.

The Oven Mitt is located inside Baker Lofts in Holland, Michigan.  We specialize in custom cakes, cookies and other baked goods.  You can visit our storefront to select from a variety of fresh baked goods or contact us to place a custom order.  At The Oven Mitt, all of our baked goods are homemade with only the freshest ingredients.  We take pride in creating delicious works of art for any occasion guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Baking life sweet sure is a treat. I’m living my dream and love every minute of it.  Stop in today or give us a call so we can help you celebrate your next event.  I can't wait to meet you.

What People are Saying

"I contacted The Oven Mitt (Tracy), who my daughter recommended. I am so happy I did!! I was planning a Bridal Shower for my niece, and also celebrating our mother’s birthday. The cupcakes and cake were not only beautiful to look at, but were so scrumptious as well! My sister, Mother-of-the-Bride, couldn’t believe how moist the chocolate cake was. Thank you for helping to make this special family event such a success!!"


"A cute little shop that I found while trying to get a cupcake for my friends birthday.  They were delicious and fresh.  I come  back from time to time and they had the cutest Thanksgiving cookies and cupcakes."


"Tracy was incredibly kind and so personable!  I am so pleased with my gender reveal cake they made!! It was beautiful and delicious.  The prices are more than reasonable.  I honestly expected to pay more for the amazing cake I received!  I will most definitely go to The Oven Mitt from now on."
