The Buffalo Cakery will offer custom cakes, Lake Effect ice cream and more from the former Sweet Tooth spot at 94 Elmwood Ave., said owner Justina Adams.
The shop doesn't have all its city licences yet, but she hopes to open by June 5, she said. Adams, from Angola, formerly ran the ice cream stand at Tubby's, she said. Then she moved to North Carolina, where she ran a successful custom cake business from her home for three years. She returned with husband Brian looking for a place to set up shop.
The place will have a variety of specialty cakes and other baked goods and desserts by the slice. There will be coffee. Plus Buffalo Cakery will be scooping up Lake Effect, the pride of Lockport, as its house ice cream, the first store to do so.
"So long as everything goes smoothly with Buffalo business licensing, June 5 should be the day," she said.
