A Little Insight

downloadThis is a bit lengthy, but please read so you will understand our upcoming changes😚

A lot of our customers have asked me why we have chosen to close the storefront and switch to a order only “Cake Studio”? There are two main reasons that I am happy to share.

~The first being that after looking closely at our finances we have determined that 90% of our business comes from orders. The volume of walk-in clientele simply doesn’t cover the cost to operate a storefront. I have tried to keep it going for the customers who like to come in and get a cupcake here or there, but at this point it is not in our best interest to keep doing so.
~Secondly, many of you who know me personally know that I suffer from to RA. With many, many hours being put in to run the bakery I fear that if I don’t cut back I won’t be able to continue making your beautiful cakes and yummy cupcakes long term. So I’m opting to make fewer treats and hopefully fitting in more cakes while cutting back on hours and stress. Cakes are my passion and I truly hope to continue to grow this area of my business.

I know I have a lot of disappointed customers right now, please know that we are NOT going out of business, just doing business a bit differently.

We are moving soon!

We are moving

We have decided to downsize and move to a new location, for a variety of different reasons, such as: being able to operate with one person, family time, and wanting to focus on custom cakes as well as take on more cake orders.

Becoming an order only bakery /cake studio is the route that we feel is best for our family.  This is unfortunate for our walk-in clientele however, please keep in mind that we will still offer all of our great pies, cupcakes, basic cakes and CUSTOM CAKES, but they will be available on an order only basis. 

Our new location will be at the Cross Street Center, 31 Cross Street, Spruce Pine, NC  28777 (on the front right side of the building, entering at the handicap ramp and the first space on the left).

We will be closing at our current location on September 23rd and will re-open, by appointment only, on Oct 1st.

If you have any questions about our new location or our move please feel free to call us at 828-520-1110, visit our Facebook page at facebook.com/visionsincake or our website at http://www.visionsincake.com
