Local Baker Fills Tall Order for RNC

Jacquie MacDonald rented out the kitchen of Sweet Caroline's bakery in Palm Harbor, so she and her team could fulfill a large order of more than 15,000 baked items for the Republican National Convention.

We've all probably baked a couple dozen cookies. How would you feel about baking more than 15,000 items?

That's the tall order received by Jacquie MacDonald, owner of Jacquie's Smart Foods, a company that bakes health-conscious treats.

MacDonald's baked goods are sold at Fit Life Foods, a new company that sells "grab and go" health-conscious, pre-packaged meals and snacks at its stores, including the Clearwater location on McMullen Booth Road. 

Fit Life Foods is supplying the Republican National Convention with snacks, which is how Jacquie got the big order.

Over the past few weeks, MacDonald, of Dunedin, rented out the kitchen of bakery in Palm Harbor, so she and her team could fulfill the large order.

MacDonald does not use animal by-products in her baked goods. She bakes a wide-variety of health-conscious items, including gluten-free banana muffins, gluten-free blueberry muffins and sugar-free carrot cake.

"Most of the people who eat our food have no idea it's vegan," she said.
