Ellen Fay, of Aunty Ellen’s Creative Confections, has unlocked the secret of a truly delectable dessert-start with a gourmet cake and add a splash of fancy liqueur.
“I call them my boozy bundts,” said Fay.
She took the huge leap that will hopefully jumpstart her business when she recently moved into the tiny building at 12A Lindell Ave. right at the corner of Lindell and North Main Street (Route 12).
Aunty Ellen's Takes the Cake for Grown-Ups Tastes
LEOMINSTER - Ellen M. Fay is passionate about baking. She started baking as a teenager and hasn't stop ever since.
"My love is baking and I'm really good at it," Ms. Fay said.
The cookies and cakes she baked during her high school years made her known and soon landed her first order; a wedding cake for 500 people. According to Ms. Fay, that first wedding cake, for her best friend, started a 19-year baking career.

How Sweet it is...In Downtown Leominster!
Ellen Corliss launched her bakery business, Aunty Ellen’s, in 2003 in Leominster.
She started baking out of her home and has been making wedding cakes since 1987. “When I look back on those days, I’m amazed that I made it happen,” said Corliss. “I’ve come so far since my first wedding cake, which took over five days to complete, from baking, filling it with fresh strawberries, assembling and frosting and decorating it for 500 people.”
