About Muddy's Bake Shop

We believe cake and baked goods are an expression of love.

Scrumptious, sweet, gooey, fuzzy-feeling-inducing expressions of love, topped with sprinkles and extra helpings for good measure.

We bake from scratch daily using traditional methods and quality ingredients. There are some things in life you just can't fake, and dang good cake? That's definitely one of them. We use organic whole milk, cage free eggs, loads of real fruit, pure extracts, amazingly delicious chocolate, and lots and lots of real butter to create simply delicious treats the old fashioned way.

Our Story

On February 29, 2008, (the perfect day for a big leap!) Kat Gordon opened Muddy's Bake Shop on Sanderlin Ave. We never had a grand opening, but people streamed through our doors anyway (waaay more people than we had food or staff for!) and in true Memphis spirit, friends, family, and total strangers came for a cupcake but stayed to pitch in—literally helping our tiny team fold bakery boxes, bus tables, even ice cupcakes! We never would have made it through that first year without the incredible Memphians who showed us true community spirit. We try to pay it forward by putting our resources towards helping local causes and fellow local makers thrive. Muddy's is proof positive that it takes a village to create something beloved and delightfully quirky.

What's in a Name?

Muddy was Kat's grandmother, a Southern bossy boss lady who worked hard, played hard, and lived life with equal parts grit and glamour. After work each day, she'd prepare meals for her family, usually doubling recipes to share her cakes and casseroles with friends, neighbors, folks in the hospital, families with new babies—anyone she thought could use a good meal and a reminder that someone was thinking of them.
