Yael Krigman is the woman behind Baked by Yael, specializing in cakepops, 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 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 its future.

In January 2015, Baked by Yael opened its first brick-and-mortar store in Woodley Park! Dubbed DC's first cakepoppery, our shop allows us to bring our products closer to the customer, whom we get to meet face to face! As DC's first cakepoppery flourishes, 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.
