A local Loveland business owner has taken her interest in baking and shared it with the community.
Cynthia Newt is the owner of Cyd’s C-Rollers, a cinnamon roll baking business that she has run for almost two years.
Cynthia Newt, who formerly worked at Johnson’s Corner in Johnstown, said during the pandemic she became interested in making her own bread, an interest that rolled into making her own cinnamon rolls.
But after being laid off, she decided to go all in to her new business.
“I (thought) my chances are better if I do this,” she said. “That is how it all came about.”
She said that, when she began in February of 2021, she would sell her cinnamon rolls, or C-Rollers, in front of stores on the weekends, trying to get people interested in her product. With a homemade sign she printed out, she would sell to anyone looking for a delicious treat.
“I was very excited when she started,” said Brian Newt, Cynthia’s husband. “I’m behind her 100%.”
Brian also helped her in making her first molds to make the signature heart shape that the C-Rollers are baked into.
Eventually, she began making rounds to different businesses selling her cinnamon rolls to employees around town. She said this has gone very well as she builds a loyal group of sweet loving fans.
“I have people that religiously buy from me and get mad if I don’t show up,” she said, chuckling.
Now, Newt makes her signature heart-shaped cinnamon rolls out of Artisans Kitchen in downtown Loveland before selling them to customers online or at local businesses. Newt spends several hours a few nights a week baking her cinnamon rolls with “the best quality ingredients,” making around 150 cinnamon rolls each time.
But, she said her heart-shaped treats are not just shaped like love.
“I put a bunch of love into them,” she said on what makes her C-Rollers unique. “Quite frankly I am pretty blessed, I just thank God I can do it and people want to eat them. I never expected the reaction I have gotten.”
