UPDATE: THANKS EVERYONE!
We made it! We found our truck - a 1966 Chevy C10 and we're now delivering sweet treats all around Charleston. Visit us at the Johns Island Farmers Market on Saturday.

Who We Are

We're Lulu (left) and Karen (right) and together we make up Sweet Lulu's Bakery on Wheels.

Why Put Desserts In Mason Jars?

Living in a coastal community like historic Charleston, South Carolina, a lot of time is spent outside or on the water. Every chance a Charlestonian gets, we pack a cooler and flock to the beach or hop on a boat. Thing is dessert is often hard to transport. So, we make tasty treats in easy-to-go mason jars. A mason jar fits nicely in any cooler and is as Southern as our pecan bourbon pie.

Our mason jar desserts are also ideal for any outdoor birthday party, Lowcountry wedding or oyster roast.

Where We Are Today

We completed our branding and website and have even starting catering birthday parties and even had brides book us for their weddings next summer! Better still, we've been getting some great PRESS and even personally delivered sweet treats to NYTimes Best-Selling Author and Good Morning America's Tory Johnson!!

We also have our applications in at the local Farmers Markets. You can expect to sample Sweet Lulu's easy to grab n' go mason jar desserts at Awendaw Green on Wednesday's and the Johns Island "Homegrown" Farmers Market on Saturday's.

My Story

I think my love of baking came from my childhood. Growing up an only child, of divorced parents, in a very tight-knit Irish Catholic community, I was raised with this 1950s ideal of what a “family dinner” was supposed to be.

While my childhood dinners were spent sitting alone in front of the TV as my mom worked a second job to make ends meet, as an adult cooking elaborate meals and especially decadent desserts for friends has become this fun and wonderful way to always have a full dinner table.

And while it may sound hokey, I like to think that not only do I love to bake, but I also bake with love.

As for my sweet Lulu, she's a 3-year old hound dog I rescued after sadly losing two, yes two! 15-year old furry kids one week apart in 2012.

I like to think Lulu rescued me as much as I rescued her. So I thought it only fitting I name the bakery in Lulu's honor. As such, a percent of profits will be donated to the Gulf Coast Humane Society where I adopted Lulu from and our new local animal shelter, Charleston's Pet Helpers.

What's In It For You?

It's one thing for me to tell ya how fab-u-luss my -- dare I say better than Grandma's -- desserts are and it's quite another for you to sample for yourself. So, in return for your support, if you're in Charleston, visit our website to find where we'll be or if you're across the country, we ship our cookies USPS Priority 2-Day Mail to your door.

What I Need

Our bakery on wheels is missing 1 very important ingredient…wheels! So my goal is to raise funds to renovate a vintage pick-up truck and trailer to be used as the areas only mason jar mobile bakery.
