Forty six years ago a young man from Michigan named Richard moved to Texas where his new wife lived and never looked back making Texas his adopted home. His in-laws had owned and operated Grimes Bakery, a full scale from scratch bakery since 1969 and Richard began an apprenticeship with them. This started a lifelong love affair with baking the freshest, best tasting confections and honing his cake decorating skills to make his customers visions a reality. For over 44 years he has improved on these original recipes, using only the finest ingredients, while utilizing the newest techniques and trends to develop new confections.
Some of the highlights of his career include making kolaches for Hank Williams Jr at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, decorating a birthday cake for Loretta Lynn (we won’t say which birthday), catering a luncheon for Miss USA and her Marine escorts, and creating the 200 year anniversary cake for the United States Marine Corp Ball. A couple of famous local residents who regularly patronized his establishments are Price Daniels, retired Texas Governor and George Foreman (the chocolate pecan chews were his favorite cookie!).
His dream has come to fruition with Texas Made Bakery.
