About Us

sweet secrets bakeryWe are a family owned business that opened in November of 2017. Our daughter, Taylor, went to pastry school in Boulder, CO and once she graduated she went to work at a bakery for a little over a year. We have a big family, so Taylor wanted to move back home but there was no where to work in Rapid City, so that’s when we decided to open a bakery and give her somewhere to work. It’s been scary opening up a business, but we have had a lot of love and support. Our goal for our bakery is to be successful in the space we are in and hopefully to grow and make more pastries down the road! Thank you to everyone who has been spreading the word about us and everyone who has been supporting us! Leave us a review on Facebook, Google or Yelp and let us know what you think!


Hi, my name is Taylor and I’m the pastry chef/manager at Sweet Secrets Bakery. When I’m not at the bakery, I like to spend time with my friends and family. My favorite items we make are the cheesecake, chocolate chunk cookie, lemon almond ricotta cake, turmeric latte cupcake…. well, I love everything we make! I’m quite the perfectionist when it comes to baking. I really love what I do!



Hi, my name is Abbey Ellison. I was born and raised in Rapid City, SD. I recently graduated from Auguste Escoffier in pastry arts. One of my favorite things to do is play with my dogs. My favorite thing to eat here is the raspberry almond biscuit!

Hi, I’m Nicki! I love to bake! In my spare time I teach yoga at Sol Yoga Collective, I play volleyball and care for my corgi, Morty. My favorite thing to bake is the chocolate because I can eat the dough 🙂
