Wild Flour Bakery
Almost 24 years ago, Wild Flour Bakery got its start in the old Arcade in downtown Cleveland. Opened by Susan Johansen (pictured left), Wild Flour has flourished into a thriving community icon.
Having originally studied to be a french teacher, Susan transitioned to a small business owner in the 90's after taking a cake decorating class.
Wild Flour has become one of the area's preeminent wedding bakeries, serving over 90,000 servings of wedding cake every year. The bakery also specializes in delicious and uniquely beautiful birthday, anniversary and every occasion cakes with a diverse and multi-talented staff.
