About

I'm just a girl...with a rolling pin...asking you to love me. 

Hi! My name is Laura Petrolino. I'm the "power" behind MePowered Pastries. 

I grew up baking. Between endless hours baking with my amazing and talented mother, to baking "bootcamps" when my great Italian aunts came into town, it was a significant part of my childhood. 

And then as an adult I got nerdy about it. I love the art and science of baking. I love understanding how and why things work or don't work and adapting recipes to fit. And being Italian it's in my DNA to make people delicious food. And a lot of it. Let me feeeeed you. 

MePowered Pastries is my side hustle and love affair (don't worry my husband is super happy about this arrangement, he's totally owning his role as Chief Taste Tester).

My goal? To bring together community through making and sharing delicious creations. We do this through our #pastriesforgood bake sales to raise money for local organizations and our KidPowered DIY boxes and baking classes to support our next generation of Mainers and bring families together through baking (family is defined for me as people who care for one another regardless of genetic obligation 💗)

I built this business around values that matter to me (see the P3 Promise). And everything I do, make, and ship is built around that. 

I want you to feel like I'm your personal baker. So let me know what you want to see on our menus. MePowered Pastries is powered by you.
