BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (WXYZ) — Blake Farms and the Cupcake Station have partnered to create a new bakery coming to downtown Birmingham this month.

Bakehouse46 will open in the former Cupcake Station location at 136 N. Old Woodward.

There are plans to open Bakehouse46 in several other locations – including Ann Arbor, Ferndale, Plymouth and Rochester – by the end of the year.

“We specifically sought out Cupcake Station for this collaboration because of its stellar quality and reputation,” Blake Family Companies President Andrew Blake said in a release. “Combining our expertise and experience, we are confident the end result and creation of Bakehouse46 will bring something new to the marketplace.”

On top of serving Blake's signature cider and donuts year-round, there will be Cupcake Station cupcakes, bagels, Michigan-made ice cream, muffins, coffee and much more. There will also be a catering option.

“This partnership gave us the opportunity to evolve and create beyond cupcakes,” Todd Gildersleeve, managing partner of Cupcake Station and Bakehouse46 said in a release. “It’s a win-win for both our loyal Cupcake Station customers who can still get our outstanding cupcakes and appeal to new customers and fans of Blake’s who will appreciate the expanded array of sweet treats and baked goods.”

The store is expected to be open 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and open around Feb. 18.
