We’re kicking off Labor Day weekend @ 3:00 pm with a great conversation about opportunity, education, student loans, work-based learning, and CAKE — not just any kind of cake, some absolutely mouth-watering, drool-worthy cakes, cupcakes, and coffee!!
Casey Ryals – Ryals Brothers, Phil Bonelli – Hopewell Farms GA, and I are chatting with Joel Acuna from Acuna’s Cake Shoppe about the new store he and his wife Diane opened up in downtown Gainesville last month to RAVE reviews. If the cupcake samples Joel brought with him are any indication — they are going to be a huge success! So good…
Learn More About Acuna’s Cake Shoppe
While Acuna’s Cake Shoppe is a newly opened storefront cake shop, we have actually been in the cake business since 2016 as Acunas Custom Cakes. Acunas Custom Cakes operated out of a private kitchen under the Georgia cottage food license!
Since 2016 they have specialized in large custom cake orders such as weddings and quinceaneras. Now with the opening of their new storefront location, they can offer more than just custom cakes.
The new shop is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10am – 6pm and they offer cupcakes and 6” cakes. Upside-down pineapple cakes, cake pops, parfaits, hot coffee/ iced coffee, and tea. A large part of our business continues to focus on wedding cakes, and are still offering consultations and tastings for wedding cake orders.
In the month they’ve been open, they already have had quite a few regulars visit the shop multiple times! That’s something they really love seeing because getting to know people and sharing their sweets with the community makes all the difference in the world!
