JAMES CITY-Those with a sweet tooth can get their fix at the new Parties Galore Cakes & More bake shop on Merrimac Trail.
A grand opening for the new business was held on May 22. Owner Teirra Caines decided to open her own bakery after operating from her home since August 2019.
The business first began as T’s Sweets and Treats with Caines making custom cakes and cupcakes.
“I’ve always loved to cook, and have always been fascinated with being in the kitchen,” Caines said. “Someone suggested I try making a cake, and it just went from there.”
As demand grew, Caines decided to expand her business and opened her brick-and-mortar establishment as Parties Galore Cakes & More.
Parties Galore Cakes & More carries a variety of sweet treats including cakes, cupcakes, and cake jars; candy apples and chocolate covered pineapples; candy pretzel rods; and more.
“I love to make the specialty cakes, something that you can’t go and get at the grocery store,” Caines said. “I love it when someone gives me a theme or a color and gives me free rein to be creative and do what I do.”
Parties Galore Cakes & More will offer a variety of treats on a rotating basis.
“We want to be an atmosphere where you can come in daily and pick up whatever sweet craving you have that day,” Caines said. “We are here to satisfy your needs.”
