Dunn From Scratch

Dunn From Scratch A home bakery located in Lucketts, VA specializing in custom made desserts! Pre-ordering is required Hi! I’m Helen Hilios Dunn, the owner and operator of Dunn From Scratch Bakery!

My passion for baking began at a young age, in a home where my mother was always filling the kitchen with yummy Greek desserts! As I grew older, I inherited her love for making people smile with home-baked goods made with fresh, high-quality ingredients. After almost 10 years in the Marketing & Communication industry, I left my office job in 2018 to put my full attention on building a bakery and being a mom!a

Friday vibes got me like…I’ve been loving all the back to school orders! Scones, muffins, brownies…it’s such a special thing to think of the patient and talented people who are taking care of our littles during the day and leading their education. After a year of homeschooling , I’m sure many parents are extra appreciative! What is one way you have thanked our educators going into the new school year?

Happy Hump Day! Let’s talk about the ordering process!

* If you’re interested in placing an order, please fill out a form on my website. If you have a question, you’re welcome to text or email me, but I will STILL ask you to fill out a form on my website. Being so busy during the day doesn’t allow me much time to sit down and fill out invoices, so I usually do these in the evening after all my work is done. Having all my order requests in one place, with all the required information, ensures I get your invoice to you correctly and in a timely manner.

* Followup to above: I do not answer phone calls. My voicemail will instruct you to my website or to send me a text message. Please do not leave me a voicemail asking me to call you back. That’s not my process and I ask that you please respect that.

* All the information you need IS on your invoice and email. My address, pickup time, your order, payment information. It’s ALL there!

* Please hold true to your requested pickup time. These are crucial for day to day business. If you’re running late, please send us a text so we can reschedule for a time that works for us both. If you show up an hour late for your pickup and I’m out running a delivery or picking up my daughter from school, I’ll feel bad, you’ll be mad and nobody is happy!

* My weekends fill up FAST! Especially with weddings back in the mix. I cannot hold orders without deposits and I can’t send you an invoice if you don’t fill out a form! If I tell you a day is available, it’s recommended that you fill out that form immediately. I can’t tell you how many times people wait another week and then I have to disappoint them with not being available anymore.

* Lastly…on behalf of every small business owner…PLEASE understand we have policies in place for a reason. They not only make day to day business easier, they protect our customers and ourselves. That includes late fees, rush fees and cancelations due to no response.

ALWAYS GRATEFUL FOR MY CUSTOMERS ❤️❤️❤️

Sprinkle wells are a great way to make your gender reveal cake a fun surprise up to the last moment. It also makes for wonderful pictures and reactions! Coloring the cake is also another fun way to reveal your baby’s gender. What’s your favorite gender reveal cake method?

Back from vacation, answering emails and sending out invoices! If you’re waiting to hear from me, thank you so much for your patience. Feeling really relaxed and happy with the wonderful memories made with my family. I recently saw a video where a mom talked about how we only get 18 summers with our children before they go out in their own…and that hit me so hard. My husband and I have talked about how we want to take Emerson on a summer trip every year (post Covid obviously) to someplace new. We’re hoping that Greece can be our first trip so Emmy can meet my family and her great grandparents. I think traveling is such a great way to experience new things together.
