A confectionery explosion of tastiness that is perfect for any occasion.

Add the spark to your event with a burst of color and a flavor BOOM!

As the founder and owner of Firecracker Bakery, Lynn Wambaugh has always been passionate about creating smiles and bringing joy and happiness through a simple sweet homemade treat. That’s how it all got started in 2004. After retiring from her teaching job to stay at home with her first born she became active in her community. She joined moms clubs and began leading outings around town, encouraging other moms to stay connected. Through this she found herself baking more, there was always a mom who needed a pick-me-up. The more people she got to know, the more baking she was doing. Eventually her passion turned into something bigger. This is when Firecracker Bursted!

How long will my baked item taste fresh?

Although all of our products are the freshest on the day you receive them, my products each have a different shelf life.

· Firecracker Burst Cookies - 10 days

· Cookie Cakes - 3 days

If you need your item for a Tuesday, an option would be to pick up on Friday and place your baked item in your freezer. See next answer for more info.

How should I store my desserts?

Firecracker Burst Cookies can be stored on the counter or in the refrigerator sealed up.

All products can be frozen in original packaging and taken out to enjoy at a later date. They thaw best sitting on your counter. I recommend taking them out of the freezer 4-6 hours before you would like to enjoy them.

What is the best way to get the cellophane off of my platter?

The easiest way to open the platter without crushing the cookies is to cut the cello wrap right around the top edge of the platter. The cello wrap is on tight to ensure freshness!

I have food allergies. Does Firecracker Bakery make anything that is wheat, nut or dairy free?

We bake in a nut free environment. All of our products are baked in a facility where wheat, dairy and eggs are present. However, our products do not contain any tree nuts or peanuts.

Does Firecracker bake for weddings?

Firecracker Bakery bakes for wedding booking 3 months in advance. Delivery service is not offered and pickup days are Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Do you cater to corporate events?

Yes! We create beautiful dessert tables for many businesses around the Greater Cincinnati area. We provide drop off catering services and delivery free of charge on any order over $150.

We are available for corporate events M-F.

How far in advance should I place my order?

We recommend that you place your order online with at least 24 hours notice. We can usually accommodate orders, but ask for additional notice for large orders or catering services. Firecracker Bakery takes orders 3 months out.

What are the serving sizes for your products?

Firecracker Burst Cookies - 2 -4 per person

I would like 4 cookies in a cello bag instead of 6. Can you do this?

Firecracker Bakery offers cookies in cello bags of 6. Purchasing Burst Cookies in a box and buying your own cello bags is a way to customize the bags to your liking. We also sell the cello bags, you can purchase them under the product "Bursts in a Box."

Where will I pick up my order?

The location of pick up is 10965 Reading Road, Sharonville, OH 45241. Park on the side of the building and come on in, or use our curbside pick up. Simply pull up around the pink traffic cones and we will be out to greet you.

Does Firecracker Bakery ship baked goods?

Unfortunately, we are unable to ship baked goods at this time, but it's something we are working on.

Can Firecracker Bakery donate to my charity?

Firecracker Bakery partners with charities whose commitment to their passions matches ours. We are very involved in our community helping local food pantries and supporting non-profit organizations. A few of our favorite charities are Melanoma Foundation, Imagine A Cure and Breast Cancer Awareness. Please fill out the 'Contact Us' form to submit a donation request and we will be in touch if we can accommodate. Due to the large volume of requests we receive, we cannot respond to each one.

Lynn Wambaugh

Founder & Owner, 2004

Chief Baker/Manager

Lynn was born on the 4th of July, and with that inspiration her sister Leslie came up with the name, Firecracker Bakery. After working alongside her two kids, building the brand and business in her home kitchen for 12 years, Lynn made the decision in 2016 to venture out into a shared kitchen learning how to effectively use commercial baking equipment, learned how to manage staff

effectively and networked with other foodie entrepreneurs. After two years she was bursting with ideas and excitement! Armed with experience and knowledge she purchased a building in 2017, and opened her own Brick- and-Mortar shop in January of 2018. Firecracker has been baking here in Sharonville ever since, we love the community and location.

Lynn is married to her husband Marc, of 22 years. They have two children John & Kate. John is attending The Fischer School of Business at The Ohio State University, and Kate is a Junior at Lakota West. She is interested in the medical field and loves playing soccer!
