Cheryl Durham, the owner of Lollycakes Cupcakes, is watching her dreams come true before her very eyes. Inside her shop, these visions often materialize as delicious cupcakes and treats crafted from scratch using gourmet recipes. Her tasty creations include flavors such as the Black Sheep, which houses a cookies ‘n’ cream cheesecake cupcake within an Oreo-cookie crust. She also whips up frozen LollyShakes, which blend your choice of Lollycake with milk and ice cream. In addition to dispensing sweet treats from her storefront, Cheryl also caters events including baby showers, birthdays, weddings, and business tea parties.
The pink banner that curls around the fa?ade of Yolanda's Specialty Cakes calls to mind the creamy fondant streaks that grace many of the eponymous owner's specialty confections. Though Yolanda Amaya has been perfecting her craft since 1977, many locals are just beginning to hop on her train of sweet treats thanks to readers of the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, who voted her shop the Best of the Best in 2010. On-hand consultants help brides- and grooms-to-be select the perfect theme for their wedding cake, and decorators spell out birthday greetings with swirls of icing. Yolanda and her bakers sculpt cakes into a variety of shapes and styles, from tiered towers to wearable quincea?era dresses.
