PEWAUKEE — Cakes While U Wait
bakery in Pewaukee is now under new ownership after owner Debbie
Arestad retired and sold the business, according to a press release.
Waukesha natives Andy and Barb Ruggeri, who purchased the bakery,
have owned several restaurants across Waukesha County, including
Ruggeri’s Ristorante in Delafield in the 200s. Andy Ruggeri is a
trained chef who studied with the late Madam Kuony.
“While I am known for my cooking, I love baking,” Andy Ruggeri said.
“I am excited to continue the great tradition of creating special
cakes to delight our customers.”
The sale of the business was finalized on April 1, 2019. The
longtime employees will remain in their roles as expert cake
decorators. Cakes While U Wait will remain at 161 W. Wisconsin Ave.
The couple has plans to tweak some of Cakes While U Wait’s offerings
such as the delicious new buttercream recipe and new chocolate
toffee brownie recipe. In the coming months, the couple plans to
introduce new treats.
“I look forward to serving the community and helping people create
special celebrations with cakes,” Andy Ruggeri said.
