Shockley's Sweet Shoppe

 How fun is that Yuengling Cake?

After hearing about Shockley's Sweet Shoppe from several friends, I decided to drop in to pick up a few treats this afternoon. Perfect pit stop after a nice hot yoga session right? As soon as I walked in, I was welcomed by several fun cake displays, a nice selection of daily treats, and two of the talented chefs. While I wished they had a larger selection for purchase, I did appreciate that the cupcakes and cannonballs were all fresh and delicious! My friend Mari had purchased cannonballs before and they were delightful. What is a cannonball you ask? They are cake balls made from a mixture of their leftover cakes pieces, I love the idea, who really wants to waste cake anyway? Since it depends on the types of cake they have made during that time, the flavors are a surprise every time!

Shockley's Sweet Shoppe has earned numerous Bride's Choice Awards and have been featured in several magazines such as The Knot, iDo, and Vow. After tasting their treats and meeting Tim and Dave, two of their friendly and talented chefs, I can see why they have received such praise and acknowledgement. I will definitely be visiting again to purchase some more goodies! If you're looking for a bakery to make a cake for a special event in Hampton Roads, I would definitely stop by Shockley's and meet with their great team!
