Mary Lowry`s Home Baking
A one woman business which began in 2005 in Lyster Square, Portlaoise. Previously a stay at home mother to three children, Mary decided to make the change in order to fill up spare time once her children moved on to secondary school.
Mary Lowry’s Home Baking provides specially baked occasion cakes that are locally produced and completely free from additives and preservatives. She has been winning prizes since she was a young girl and her passion for baking was inherited from her mother. “My mother always baked and was a brilliant cook so I guess it rubbed off as she always encouraged us in the kitchen,” explains Mary. Mary states that “baking is time consuming but when the customers are so happy with the cakes, for me it makes it all worthwhile.”
Today Mary provides cakes and other baked goods for Weddings, Birthdays, Christmas and all other special occasions using only the best and locally sourced ingredients where possible. All cakes are available at Portlaoise and Abbeyleix farmer’s markets and select local shops.
