Jane Danger Is Baking With Booze

Jane's Sweet Buns

Booze and baked goods: These are a few of my favorite things.

It would seem Jane Danger (pictured above) understands me. Barkeep turned baker, Jane has created a stir by using cocktails and spirits as the inspiration for her pastries at her charming shop in Manhattan’s East Village, Jane’s Sweet Buns.

Prior to opening her bakery, Jane spent seven years bartending in New York City. Starting at the iconic (and infamous) CBGB’s, she worked her way through some of the coolest downtown cocktail haunts —PDT, Little Branch, and Death and Co, to name a few, and headed up the punch program at Cienfuegos. At Jane’s Sweet Buns, she’s using her skills as a craft bartender to create boozy baked goods.

“It’s always been my dream to combine my passion for baking with my love of cocktails,” Jane said.

And now Jane is teaming up with Campari to create three original treats featuring the spirit.

“I’m a huge fan of Campari and have been for as long as I can remember,” said Jane. “These Campari sweet treats are my personal homage to the spirit. Campari enthusiasts will detect its unique signature flavor immediately.”

Jane served her goodies at Chef’s Night Out in Chelsea Market on Sunday evening.
