Guest Post: Bakery Suggestions for Springfield, MO from Emma Chapman of Red Velvet Sweet Shoppe

CakeSpy Note: I have to admit, I am always curious to hear what bakeries are beloved by bakery owners. Happily, I recently received a great list of bakery suggestions from Emma Chapman, co-owner of Springfield, Mo-based Red Velvet Sweet Shoppe. Here's the lowdown on Red Velvet, an obvious must-visit if you're in the area...as well as other suggestions for delicious sweets in the area! Images all provided courtesy Float Away Studios.

Red Velvet Sweet Shoppe is new in town. The entire store is actually owned by two sisters, one who bakes cupcakes and makes bubble tea, and one who loves handmade and vintage. Daily cupcake flavors include (but
are not limited to): Salted Caramel, Red Velvet, Snickerdoodle Cookie, Birthday Cake, Peanut Butter Monster and Cookies and Cream. The sweet shoppe also offers bubble tea in variety of flavors on a rotating basis. 211 East Commercial Street in Springfield, MO 65803; online at redvelvetcatering.com

But the sweetness doesn't stop there. Where else do the owners of Red Velvet suggest stopping in for a sweet? Why not try one of these places suggested by co-owner Emma:

  • The Cup (cravethecup.com) tons of yummy cupcakes and coffee drinks. My favorite is the tuxedo flavor:)
  • The Pie Box (mypiebox.com) charming place to get sweet or savory pies to go. My personal favorite is the fancy peach, although I really NEED to try the old fashion buttermilk pie soon.
  • Amy Cakes (sweetsbyamycakes.com) located downtown and is probably Springfield's longest running cupcake and confections bakery. My favorite is the mini red velvet cupcakes. 

You can learn more about Emma and her bakery Red Velvet Sweet Shoppe here, and keep up on her adventures via her blog here.

It's amazing all the creativity that can be achieved with something as simple and as humble as a cupcake or a cookie. I marvel at all the great ideas. And I'm totally befuddled what to make next. So many of 'em look sooooooo good.
After taste testing all of the above places mentioned by Emma...I have come to realize I have a sweet tooth. Ha!

No seriously, the Red Velvet cupcakes from the Red Velvet Sweet Shoppe are hands down the best I've ever had. True story.
