Sweet Tooth: Fresh from the Oven in Waterloo


Erin Cornelius said she simply loves to bake.

"I just love baking, and I always look for people to bake for," said Erin Cornelius.

Back in December, Erin Cornelius made the decision to formally start her own baking business -- Fresh from the Oven in Waterloo. She makes cookies, cakes, pies and breads.

Cornelius credits her grandmother for her love of baking.

"I think I got my love of baking from my grandma. Every time we went down there she baked cinnamon rolls and cookies and cakes. I spent a lot of time there when I was a kid," said Cornelius.

Her grandmother passed away in 2008. But, Erin said her grandmother lives on through her baking. That's because her specialty is her grandma's cinnamon rolls. She even uses a copy of the recipe she wrote out when she was just eight years old.

Right now Erin works out of a home kitchen. She's working to build her customer base, but eventually she wants her own location.

"I have a long-term goal of opening my own bakery. But that's long-term," she said.

For now, she's just happy to have more people besides family and friends give her sweet treats a try.
