Christen Blackburn, owner of The Bake Shoppe, has sold baked goods for three years in Uptown Beckley, and is now at her new location across from the former on Neville Street. “I tried to follow aspects of ‘Winter’s Tale’ when I came up with this recipe,” she said. Sometimes Christen uses recipes as roadmaps, but her experience in baking encourages her to go off-route, experimenting with new pathways to flavor. The Shoppe’s bestsellers? Bread pudding, cream horns and peanut butter cake.
