New bakery to open on Main Street

Springfield native will feature specialty cupcakes

A new, family-owned bakery is expected to be open next month, providing specialty cakes and freshly baked cupcakes every day.

Jazzy Cakes & More is expected to open next month in the 1,300 square-foot building 1605 E. Main St., said owner Jasmine Stream. She started baking for friends and family members a few years ago, and received such positive reviews that she decided to start her own business.

A new sign is expected to be installed in the coming weeks, and plumbing and heating and air-conditioning systems in the building will be improved, among other renovations, Stream said. The bakery is expected to open before Christmas, but Stream said no specific date has been set.

“We’re still in the process of renovating the building, but things should be moving along pretty quickly,” Stream said.

A Springfield native, Stream said she is excited to become a part of the local business community.

“The city is slowly rebuilding itself as you see with the downtown area and new businesses coming in,” Stream said. “I’m excited to be a part of the growth.”

Once open, the store will offer specialty cakes, cookies, fudge and caramel apples, among other items. She said said the business will offer a variety of fresh cupcakes in several flavors that she expects to be a big draw for customers.

“It’s definitely going to be more of the decorated cakes you see on TV,” Stream said of the bakery’s specialty.

Stream will largely be running the business on her own, although she will likely have some help from family members. Initially, the store will likely be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., although it could remain open a couple hours later each day depending on the demand from customers.

The business will likely be open six days a week, and closed on Sundays, but Stream said she has not yet made a final decision on what days the bakery will be open.

While she had initially considered a building on Mitchell Boulevard, she said the East Main Street location seemed to be a better fit, and has enough traffic nearby to help draw in new customers.

“The building is actually in really great shape,” she said.

A former medical assistant, Jazzy Cakes & More will be Stream’s first business.
