Dynamic Pastries by Champane manufactures everything in-house. They have all kinds of candy items like cupcakes, cookies, cake slices and brownies.
MACON, GA – The Macon Flea Market is home to a new bakery. Cheryl Mills is the owner of Dynamic Pastries by Champane.
They opened this January at the Macon Flea Market. Dynamic Pastries sells all kinds of confectionary items like cupcakes, cookies, cake slices, and brownies. They also take cake orders.
Mills says business has been good since opening.
“We had a lot of customers who didn’t really know we were there, but the word is spreading,” she said.
Mills says everything – from the pasta to the frostings – is homemade.
“All my cakes, everything. They’re very moist and the frosting is homemade. They’re just good,” she said.
Petit fours are must-haves, but key lime pies and red velvet cakes are the bestsellers, according to Mills.
She is also a singer. She made her living as a singer in the band Old Soul II with music legend Macon Bo Ponder, under the stage name “Champane”.
After the COVID-19 pandemic forced the Macon native to stay home, she decided to pursue her second love: baking.
“I love to cook, and being home all the time, I thought I would just walk into the kitchen and just, you know, cook and cook for other people,” she said.
Mills incorporated his stage name into the name of the bakery, Dynamic Pastries by Champane, to pay homage to his other profession.
“I kind of carried that name,” she said.
This is Mills’ first business venture. She says it’s “wonderful” to open a place in her hometown.
The bakery is open from 2 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. on Wednesdays and from 1 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. It is closed from Sunday to Tuesday.
It is located at 3640 Eisenhower Pkwy.
