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.

Currently, my business is operated out of my home in Leesburg, VA. I’m newly 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 recently became pregnant with our first child and are expecting our little “Dunn in the Oven” to arrive in January of 2018.

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!
