New bakery to open

A new, family-owned bakery is expected to host a grand opening today after the East Main Street building it is housed in underwent months of renovations.

Jazzy Cakes & More is located at 1605 E. Main St., a building that previously held the Whipper Snappers business. The 1,300-square-foot building was initially expected to open late last year, but was delayed during the renovation process, said owner Jasmine Stream.

For its grand opening, the business will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today. Normal hours will be 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

This is the first business for Stream, a former medical assistant. The business will focus on specialty cakes, she said, but will also offer a variety of cupcakes, caramel apples and chocolate-covered pretzels, among other items.

“I’m so happy with the way things turned out,” Stream said. “I think Springfield will be happy to have something new.”

The grand opening will include giveaways, free samples and other activities for customers throughout the day, Stream said.

Stream, a Springfield native, will largely be running the business on her own. However, she has hired a pastry chef and family members will also chip in to help, she said.

Stream said she had considered other potential locations, but despite the renovations needed, the East Main Street facility ended up being the best fit.

“It probably took about seven to eight months to get from where I started to where I am today,” she said.
