Mrs. Stallings Bakery
January 10, 2003 10:28AM
There was a bakery which specialized in wedding cakes run out of a private home in the Oak Lawn section of Dallas on a corner at or near Holland St, (at least during the 50's and 60's.) I only knew it as Mrs. Stalling's.
Does anyone know what became of the business and/or the recipes?

This brings to mind another similar bakery, which I believe was "Braden's Cake Shop" or "Bakery", which was in Oak Cliff. Any information on this ?

My mom used to get birthday cakes from someplace (I think) in Highland Park Village... but my recollection was that it was called "Mrs. Stein's Bakery"... which may just be my misinterpretation of "Stallings", (or maybe it was a different place). (Jim was there a Mrs. Stein's someplace?)
She got them to put all kinds of crazy stuff on the birthday cakes... one was a toy train, and another included several dinosaurs (for my brother who's now a paleontologist). I was just looking at some of these home movies with my bro. over the holidays.
My recollection was that the bakery where we got the cakes (Stallings or Steins?) also had pretty good doughnuts and "Bismark's". (Interestingly in Dallas, a Bismark was a flat cookie-like thing, and when we moved to CA, a Bismark was a snail-like cinnamon roll (fluffy, not flat).

Jim Wheat-
Thanks again for this and all the other information you post !
I think the Braden's in question might have been another family.....maybe a small "mom and pop" operation. I remember a daughter, Ripple Ann Braden, was in one of my classes at Trinity Heights (now Harrel Budd) Elementary School.
