Sandi Hillis makes the best cakes ever with all-natural ingredients and even gluten-free options (but you’d never guess!)

2Jamsen’s Fish Market and Bakery, Copper Harbor
My favorite Michigan bakery, Jamsen’s staff are a hoot and make some of the best pastries in the Keweenaw. “Gotta have it” items include the cheddar, bacon and chive scone and the thimbleberry frosted donuts.

3Boyne City Bakery, Boyne City
Boyne City Bakery is the BEST French bakery, in the U.S. Each time I go into this bakery I feel like I’m stepping back into a French bakery in France from the delicious pastries and breads, to the French-speaking baker, to the polite employees, and the French-themed decor and ambiance. Go today and enjoy a “little piece of French heaven”!

and so much more. Everything from Sunset Acres Bakery is beyond good, it’s delicious!!
