A couple weeks ago, and the reason for my non-postings, I had the privilege of being the matron of honor for my girlfriend's wedding. Even though we lived miles apart, I took on the bachelorette party planning and whatever else I could do for the bride to the best of my abilities. In one conversation with the bride, she poured out her heart to me and told me what kind of cake she was planning to get but it wasn't happening for her wedding. Mind you she was very gracious and grateful for whatever she had but as a best friend I just wanted to go that extra mile. So after research and personal calls to different bakeries in Osage Beach, Missouri, I ended up choosing to go with The Sugar Loft Cake Shoppe.
The owner is Kathy Odom and her website had just enough for me to call and get excited about the possibility of making a friend's wish come true. I talked with one of her employees and was informed that she, the owner, would get a hold of me soon. For an owner to busy like that was a good sign that this was a popular cake shop and the kind of cake shop I wanted to do business with. After a couple correspondences Kathy and I finally got to talk with each other and get an order for a dozen old-fashioned looking cupcakes for the party and a personal cake for the bride and groom. All set and ready to go for wedding week in Missouri.
When I arrived in Osage Beach, I made a visit to the shop and purchased two cupcakes for a taste test. Now I'm no cupcake connoisseur but I know a good cupcake when I eat one. So far I've had Georgetown Cupcakes, Sprinkles, Cake Love and all kinds of cupcakes across the country and overseas. I must admit her cake rivals some of the best when it comes to moistness and flavor. I tried the wedding cake with raspberry filling and the strawberry lemonade cupcakes. Oh my goodness, it was heavenly, flavorful and sugarrific! From those first couple bites, I knew I had made the right choice for my party and gift.
If you are ever near Osage Beach or desiring some seriously delicious sweets I urge you to stop by The Sugar Loft Cake Shoppe and give them a try. Their website is currently updating more photos of their cake creations but if you stop by in person you will see all the many designs they have created for different occasions.
