A bakery popular for its gourmet cupcakes, wedding cakes and other specialties as well as ice cream, cookies and brownies welcomes guests to its third dessert shop in the Jacksonville area.
Smallcakes Cupcakery & Creamery opens its new location Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. at 10111 San Jose Blvd. Suite 1 at Crown Point Plaza in Mandarin.

He said Red Velvet, Wedding Cake and Strawberry were also very popular.
