Hi! I'm Meredith, the owner and chief baker here at Artisan Bake Shop and I love cakes and desserts!

For the past 15 years, I have been baking delicious and beautiful cakes and desserts from scratch in Southeastern Massachusetts! My business is small and personal and this allows us to provide you with the perfect combination of style, flavor, and service.


Style: beautifully decorated cakes

Bold Flavors: scratch-made cakes, fillings and frosting, using the finest ingredients and bold flavors

Our Service: I have a small, dedicated team to serve you!

For Your Wedding Day: You'll be surprised how smoothly the cake design process will be with our help! We know all the ins and outs of every venue across the South Coast of Massachusetts, Cape Cod, Newport RI, and Bristol, Rhode Island. This helps to make sure your cake, cupcakes or wedding desserts are delivered and setup perfectly!

Are you gluten-free and love cake? We’re here for you! I'm happy to offer lots of gluten-free cake and cookies. Vegan cakes and cupcakes are also available. Egg-free, dairy-free, vanilla-free, soy-free and other allergies can also be accommodated.



Chef Meredith Rousseau, Owner and Chief Baker:

I love to cook, be in my garden, and spend time with my son, husband and dog.

I graduated as valedictorian from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York and with Honors from Johnson & Wales Univeristy, in Providence, Rhode Island.



Tabitha Schneider, Lead Sugar Artist and General Manager:

I love to cook, be in my garden, and spend time with my son, husband and dog.

Living near the ocean is one of my greatest joys. Crafting, painting and origami cranes are some of my hobbies.


Connected to the Southeastern MA Community

My bakery believes in the sustainability of the community and the planet.

  • I source from local farms for eggs and fruit
  • Solar panels heat our water
  • We have a vegetable and herb garden on site, fueled by our compost pile
