MagiCandle Cakery has made its mark on Bismarck for over 25 years. The beloved bakery will be closing its doors at the end of October.
Stella Baetsch is the long time owner of the bakery. She not only bakes cakes, but teaches baking classes as well. She says over the years she has made “over thousands and thousands” of cakes and has taught over 3,000 future bakers. MagiCandle is also one of the only places in Bismarck that has every thing you could possibly need for baking.
Baetsch says they bake anything from wedding cakes to cupcakes for parties. She says she doesn’t know if she is selling her shop or just closing the doors completely yet.
“We don’t know,” says Baetsch. “There’s a question mark there. The hardest part is going to be walking out the door.”
Baetsch says she has made wonderful memories over the years and will miss all the customers the most. She says there’s no specific reason for the closing, but it’s just time. She hopes someone will be able to take over MagiCandle after she leaves.
