Sugar and Slice
After more than two decades in banking, Karen Burks decided to focus on a sweeter passion: baking. Using her business acumen and her previously untapped knack for frosting design, she opened Sugar and Slice bakery. The cozy spot specializes in beautiful cupcakes, whipped up in an ever-changing list of flavors that includes options like mint chocolate chip, peanut butter banana, and pecan pie. The treats are baked fresh every day, and complement an array of pastries, such as cinnamon rolls and bagels, not to mention the shop's savory fare, which includes daily-made soups and sandwiches.
