Hi! I’m Helen Hilios Dunn, the owner and operator of Dunn From Scratch Bakery! My passion for baking began at a young age, in a home where my mother was always filling the kitchen with yummy Greek desserts! As I grew older, I inherited her love for making people smile with home-baked goods made with fresh, high-quality ingredients. After almost 10 years in the Marketing & Communication industry, I left my office job in 2018 to put my full attention on building a bakery and being a mom!
Open since January 2017, my business is operated out of my home in Lucketts, VA. I’m married to an incredible man who is not only my official taste tester, but who also gave me the best last name to kick start my business! We have the sweetest little girl named Emerson Gray who just turned one and enjoyed her first Dunn From Scratch cake!
The inspiration for my baking comes from the joy in my customers’ faces when they taste one of my creations. I love trying new things, playing with flavor combinations and live by the notion that all desserts are made better with a little dash (or shot) of alcohol! I hope to open a brick and mortar in the future as well as a food truck so standby!
Thank you for your continued support and I hope you enjoy everything Dunn From Scratch!
