Mayer resident Roselynn Fernwalt has found a way to cash in on Arizona's gold rush history while doing what she enjoys - she bakes Gold Nugget Desserts.

In a 10-inch JOBE gold prospecting pan, she seals "pay dirt" under a cake or pie in another tin and includes instructions for panning out the gold.

"Stake your claim on this dessert and your taste buds will certainly know you have struck it rich," her brochure proclaims.

Fernwalt launched her home-based baking business, Love Is Homemade, in 2011, after a change in Arizona law allowed licensed commercial baking in private homes.

She started by offering her signature glazed carrot cake, a buttermilk cake with cranberries and orange zest, and two kinds of chocolate cake - in regular and "mini" sizes - along with various pies and a pumpkin roll.

Now, in addition to individual orders, she keeps Mayer's Big Bug Bakery and Creekside Lodge, as well as Scoopz Ice Cream Shop in Dewey-Humboldt, supplied with goodies.

All baked goods are made from scratch, and the pans are made in the U.S.A.

She's expanded to what she calls "sugar-free" pies, meaning she sweetens them with fruit juice without adding sugar or artificial sweeteners.

She will ship cakes, but not pies - those the customer must pick up. The cakes she ships Monday through Wednesday (cooler months only) by priority mail with a tracking number.

Her husband, Don, performs his original cowboy poetry around the state. His third performance at Scoopz will be outdoors around the firepit from 6-7:30 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 24. (Dress warmly!)

Don also has recorded his work on two "Cowboy Poetry" CDs.

For prices and ordering information on baked goods or CDs, call the Fernwalts at 928-632-4226, or email: loveishomemade@Q.com.
