Shellane Brown, who recently won the 11th season of the Food Network show “Halloween Wars” and famously created a life-size confection of the likeness of The Rock for the Discovery Channel competition “Cakealikes,” is set to open a new bakery in south metro Atlanta, Georgia.
Woodstone Bakery & Café at Trilith will open in time for the holidays on November 22 in the community’s fast-growing Town Centre, the development’s retail district featuring a collection of carefully curated retail experiences, restaurants and luxury apartment homes.
“Shellane has been honing her passion for baking all her life, including starting her first business, Apple-Butter Bakery in 2009 in Stone Mountain, Georgia,” says Rob Parker, president of Trilith. “Since then, she has established herself within the pastry industry by winning and judging various Food Network and Discovery Channel competitions. She brings a variety of creativity and art to her work, and we’re excited to have Woodstone Bakery & Café in our Town Centre.”
The Black-owned business will feature new takes on nostalgic desserts. The menu features custom cakes, cupcakes, pies, pastries and charcuterie. Brown’s husband, Daniel, the mastermind behind Gilly Brew Bar in Stone Mountain, Georgia, will offer specialty beverages including coffees and creative elixirs. The bakery’s name comes from the Lithonia street where Shellane grew up.
“After hearing the vision for Trilith, Daniel and I were confident that this was the community for us to live and work,” says Shellane Brown. “We’ve formed a special bond with our Stone Mountain community and we look forward to doing the same with our new Fayetteville neighbors. We’ve been blown away by the support we’ve received thus far.”
