Darlene Mast's favorite item to bake is bread."I love the process of breadmaking," said Mast, who's new business, Share 'N Dipity at 287 Taylor Road off Arlington Avenue, features sourdough, cranberry-walnut and olive breads, cookies, pastries, croissants, Danish, biscotti and cheesecakes — all made from scratch."I grew up baking," said Mast, whose parents and whose husband's parents were Amish. She bakes every day that the business is open — every day but Mondays.
The shop, which opened Feb. 27, is celebrating a grand opening on Thursday with the Richland Area Chamber and Economic Development. The white-framed building is the only commercial business in the quiet neighborhood. The site was once home to a well-known toy store and soda shop in the 1950s called Crall's Toy and Gift Shop.Mast has traveled the world and especially loves going to European bakeries. Her Mansfield business focuses on European-inspired breads. She also bakes cookies, including four popular staples — chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter and chocolate indulgence. The shop offers space for local vendors to sell their goods, including Twisted Fig Tea products, specialty pasta and flavored balsamic oils.
Mast and her husband Todd both served in the military — she in the U.S. Air Force, and he in the U.S. Marines Corps. They met at work in Mt. Eaton, Ohio, where she was a waitress and he a part-time cook. The couple have four children.
