The Shredded Carrot
Alhambra’s very own The Shredded Carrot started out in 2014 as the founder’s personal blog. Suzanne Eggli, the bakery’s owner and founder was given a blog website as a Christmas present by her husband and kids for her to share recipes online. Eventually, in 2018, Suzanne made her goal a reality when she opened her physical store The Shredded Carrot “A Sweet Bakery” along the city’s West Valley Boulevard and is now known to satisfy Alhambrans’ sugar cravings with its wide range of cakes, cookies, and various baked good through Suzanne’s traditional recipes.
I have enjoyed baking for family & friend for as long as I can remember. I am extremely proud to have 2 of my children run the bakery during the day and handle the day-to-day operation. We have little helpers from time to time as my granddaughters frequent the place too!Suzanne Eggli, Founder and Owner of The Shredded Carrot “A Sweet Bakery”
