“We were thrilled to hear about the BuzzFeed poll,” says Kelly Childs. “It’s already very satisfying to do what you love, what you believe in and to have that passion embraced in this way is incredibly rewarding. The messages of congratulations and support have been overwhelming”.
BuzzFeed readers ranked Kelly’s Bake Shoppe #3 on a list of the “25 Sweet Cupcake Shops Around The World To Eat At Before You Die”; adding comments about Kelly’s products such as, “They have so much flavor despite being gluten and dairy free.

“Not a day goes by that we don’t hear from customers who are eager to tell us about how much they appreciate what we have done to create menu options that help them in their commitment to live healthier or in their struggle to find high quality food that is compatible with their sensitives or allergies,” explains Erin Weatherbie. “We created these menus for our family and we couldn’t be happier that we now have an even bigger family of supporters”.
