From the beginning, our goal has been to provide our customers with only the best in baked goods—best in quality, flavor, freshness, and design. We still used our family’s original formulas for our signature items thumbprint cookies, almond-flavored white cake, chocolate chip cookie cakes, cheese straws, coconut macaroons, chocolate cake, danish, cream cheese icing, and buttercream icing. Other bakery products and recipes have come and gone, but these original family recipes are still the most popular.

The Ainsworth family has owned and operated Federal Bake Shop since 1974. We have always been a Hixson bakery serving the greater Chattanooga area and beyond. We started in the Northgate Mall in 1974 and have been in our current Hixson location since 1994.

I think one reason people keep coming to us year after year is that the quality of our baked goods never diminishes. We keep up with current themes and favorites, but our business is based on those tried and true family recipes. One of our customers, Cookie Johnson, made this comment:

We never have to worry about the “baker” having a bad day. Your bakery produces excellent products on a consistent basis. In our 30 plus years of being your customer, we have never been disappointed in the taste or presentation of your cakes.

If you’ve never visited our bakery, I hope you will. Our friendly staff will make you feel like part of the family. And I believe you’ll find, as Cookie and so many others have, that our bakery goods are always fresh, rich, and tasty. I believe once you’ve tried Federal Bake Shop wares, you’ll be back for more!
