About Yael


Baked by Yael is a woman-owned small business based in Washington, DC and specializing in cake pops, bagels, rugelach, black and white cookies, and other delicious baked goods. I made my first bagel during my final year of law school and started baking frequently the summer I studied for the bar exam. I found it to be a wonderful form of procrastination that didn't involve leaving home (and my stack of bar exam prep books).

In November 2011, I took the plunge and left my corporate law firm job of 8 years (the last 2 years I was an attorney and head of our office community service program) to focus on Baked by Yael full-time. Running my own business has its challenges, but so far I don't regret it at all. Life is short and I think it's important to make the most of it. I'm passionate about my business and excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.

As I develop Baked by Yael into what will soon be a brick-and-mortar bakery, I intend to keep my commitment to the community by using my legal skills and by supporting local nonprofits through Baked by Yael's cause marketing initiatives.
