Kara Boo started out as an at-home venture for professional pastry chef Kara Enache, but it quickly grew into a successful and award-winning bakery. Though husband Boo’s background is in corporate finance, Kara says, “He quickly picked up pastry techniques and has a passion for cooking and baking. He does a lot of research and is a real natural.”
Once the Miramar Beach location was set, Boo joined Kara at KaraBoo Bakery, and together they create spectacular wedding, birthday and special event cakes, cupcakes, delectable croissants and other pastries, savory and sweet. Carrying fair-trade coffee, they are the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or a special treat.
My father celebrated his 81st birthday this year by ordering the Hummingbird Cake, and my Mother on her 76th this March opted for the Chocolate Ganache with Salted Caramel. Both were the most amazing cakes ever tasted, and this is coming from a non-cake lover and pie girl!
KaraBoo recently decided to showcase Norman Love Chocolates from Fort Myers, Fla., which Kara describes as “works of art.” They are a decadent indulgence. Don’t pass up the opportunity to enjoy the very special fruit tarts and sausage filled breakfast pastries, or the 54-layered croissants! You won’t want to leave without taking home a box…or two!
