K&J’s Elegant Pastries is where you can create delicious memories right here in Alabama. The designer chef, Kristal Bryant, is an Alabama native that specializes in sweet treats and smiles.

“K&J's was started as a side business while working in the restaurant industry,” Bryant said. “After years of juggling work and business, I decided to step out on faith and focus strictly on my business!! And the reward has been AMAZING!”

K&J’s Elegant Pastries is located right here in Central Alabama. You can start your mouth-watering experience at 236 1st Street South, Suite #300, in Alabaster, Alabama. They are open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., and are closed Sunday and Monday.

Bryant said she attended Virginia College Culinard in Birmingham, Alabama. Growing up in a family that had a passion for cooking and her love for arts, she knew at the very young age of 14 that she wanted to become a chef. Also, Bryant has over 18 years of experience in the food industry, and her creations are real showpieces.

“The most rewarding part of owning K&J’s is being able to employ my family and friends and work with them daily,” she said.

Here is a rundown of Bryant’s most popular confections:

 Kollosal Milkshakes 

Believe me when I tell you the World’s Best Milkshake is right here in Central Alabama!  K&J’s Elegant Pastries offers its famous “Kollosal” and “Kollosal Jawdropper” Shake (The K & J shakes).

They are a front cover of a magazine-worthy. And, the options are nearly endless: 15 different shake flavors are available daily!

Custom Cakes 

If you can dream it, K&J’s Elegant Pastries can create it. They offer a fantastic opportunity to have a custom cake designed for your event or wedding. The snapshots of the wedding cakes look like works of art that happen to be edible.

The custom birthday cakes are especially filled with joy. I really love the pink princess cake with the gold crown on top.
