Trish Fredrickson is the owner and operator of Bake Sale Patti. Trish has been a professional baker for over 20 years. It all started with an one of those “Mother’s Day Cookbooks” you publish in the 2nd grade. The one where the recipes go something like this…”Bake turkey at 1000 degrees for 20 minutes.”  Trish proudly turned in her recipe, which consisted of Swiss steak, mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans. It was two and a half pages long. Trish is very detail oriented. A blogger from an early age.

In 1992, Trish went from being a casual home baker to becoming a full time pro baker while her husband returned to college near Chicago. Her baking career started as just a paycheck with great hours for raising a family. However, while working at the Great Harvest Bread Co. in Geneva, IL, she discovered her love for scratch baking. Making bread from milling the wheat to bagging the loaves and everything in between gave her great pride. “It is such an honor to be contributing to a family’s meal time.” Since then she worked at Aspen Mills, Elizabethan Desserts and Thyme in the Ranch prior to opening the doors at Bake Sale Patti in late 2016.

Trish lives in Rancho Penasquitos with her husband. Her son graduated from college and is working overseas and her daughter is in college. With an empty nest on the horizon, Trish is looking forward to the next chapter or post….

  1. I happened by and picked up one of their big peanut butter cookies and a pumpkin scone. The scone was moist and actually tasted of pumpkin, (not just a bunch of spices w/ orange coloring) and surely not the dense bricks I’m used to! The best part was the brown butter icing on top! I LOVE brown butter anything and this made something yummy absolutely delicious! What a tasty addition! Thank you!

  2. I’ve been waiting for a place like yours to open up in Poway! I was just passing by after running errands at Target. I’m so blessed to have stumbled upon such a cute, simple, family-bakery like yours. Your story inspires me. I love meeting simple people who are just doing what they love to do. What they are MEANT to do. Your double chocolate cookie is just what I needed! Crisp on the outside, moist in the inside. Perfect with coffee. I can’t wait to try your other goodies.

  3. Enjoyed the Valentine’s cookies brought to us by KPMG. Not only delicious by beautiful to look at. I will definitely visit Patti at her business site for future gifts.

  4. My girls and I come to Patti’s every Friday for a treat. Everything is SO delicious!! If you haven’t tried the sprinkle cookies, you have NO idea what you’re missing!!!!

  5. First time walking into your bakery!!
