My Sweet Little Bake Shop has opened at 3610 N. Elm St., Suite C in Greensboro.
It opened next to Burn Bootcamp in a shopping center anchored by The Salvation Army Select store.
The shop specializes in scratch-made cupcakes and custom cakes.
“It’s always been a dream to have a bakery,” said Deedee Williams, owner of the shop.
Williams said she has been baking her whole life, especially with her mother for holidays and potluck dinners. She always wanted to open a bakery, but a career in mortgage banking kept her from pursuing the idea. After 20 years in the corporate world, she finally banked on her dream of opening her own bake shop.
“It’s a creative outlet. It lets me get my art on,” Williams said.
Williams offers grab-and-go cupcakes in two sizes. Sweet Baby Cakes are small yellow or chocolate cupcakes with frosting flavors that change each week. Flavors such as vanilla, chocolate fudge, blueberry and orange Creamsicle are some options. They are sold by the dozen for $17.99.
The Mighty Sweet Cake is a jumbo cupcake in six flavors that change weekly. In addition to mainstays such as chocolate, vanilla and banana pudding, customers might find flavors including strawberry shortcake, apple pie or s’mores. Mighty Sweet Cakes are $3.99 each, $22.99 for a half dozen, $39.99 for a dozen.
For a sweet gift, pick up a Sweetgram with a Mighty Sweet Cake in a custom gift box with a card.
The bakery also offers sugar-free options.
