Alyssa and Shannon will present classes on how to make your own cakesicles, as well as how to decorate cupcakes using various designs. Classes will revolve around the holidays of each month as well as universal tips for year round!
Alyssa and Shannon are childhood friends and Harrison High School graduates. They began their online bakery, Golden Bakery Company, in January 2021, turning their hobby into a career! Since starting their bakery, they sell to customers in Southern Westchester as well as local coffee shops. They love to make custom orders for families and customers for every occasion and theme such as baby showers, birthdays, weddings, and more! In the future, they would like to open a bakery storefront in Harrison and be an active part in the community.

The Harrison Public Library Maker-in-Residence will work out of the Library for three months (no more than 4 hours per month), working on a project of their choosing. As part of your residency, you will share your skills with the public. We’ll cover the costs of workshop supplies and pay you a stipend of $500 for your time working and teaching. You get unrestricted access to our equipment, an opportunity to learn new skills, public exposure for your work, and a chance to share your talents with your community and all the warm fuzzy feelings that entails. We’re looking for all kinds of making, whether digital or physical. Come and show us how you do it.
Makers selected must be 18 or older, may be subjected to a comprehensive criminal background check, and must have professional references. Applications are accepted and makers are selected on a rolling basis, with appointments made as residencies end.
Thank you for submitting your application. We will be in touch soon.
