Kitty McClain

alter-ego, baker, and punk rocker

Kitty is Kat’s twin sis who also works in the bakery. She loves whipping up new pies, cookies, and cakes and is almost always rocking out. She thinks it’s hilarious to write “bite me” on almost any baked good. While Kat has to balance books, pay bills, and be the boss, Kitty just bakes and has fun. She loves to play dress-up (everything from Joan Jett to June Cleaver), chat with the regulars, and use the broom as a mic. If there’s one thing the sisters agree on, it’s that pie is the most superior food ever.

Part of the Muddy’s family since February ’08


Sparkles

special deliveries and awesomeness

Sparkles helps out with our supply deliveries and sometimes assists in the kitchen. If you’re wondering why the cake you’re eating tastes so good, it’s probably because Sparkles used his magical unicorn horn to stir the batter.

Part of the Muddy’s family since before time.


Our Suppliers

We’re super-lucky to have some kick-A people we work with-- without our suppliers, we wouldn't have all these delicious yummies and awesome stuff to sell!


Behind the Scenes - the support Kat couldn’t do without

These are the folks that are the reason Kat isn’t in therapy 24/7!

 

Mom (Jan)

A super-awesome realtor with Crye-Leike, yet she still makes time to hang out in the bakery folding bakery boxes like a champ.

 

Dad (Wake)

A pilot with Pinnacle Airlines and a budding pianist, yet he still spends countless hours every week helping Kat with accounting, taxes, etc.

 

Thomas

Thomas works at Alco in beautiful downtown Memphis and is the brains (and tastebuds) behind EatLocalMemphis. He is Kat's support on the home front, providing humor, moral support, and lots of ideas and bounce-back. The Oatmeal Cream Pie and our seasonal favorite, the Reindeer Cake, are both products of his delightful taste!

 

All these people do a lot to make Muddy’s possible and I thank them so much for their love and support!!!
