Life just got a little sweeter in north Macon with the opening of a new bakery.
Smallcakes, located in the Kroger shopping center on Zebulon Road next door to Marble Slab Creamery, opened last week and held its grand opening Saturday.
The chain of franchises operates about 60 stores in 13 states, including one in Warner Robins at 206 Russell Parkway.
Smallcakes features 12 signature cupcakes from the company's stash of nearly 100 recipes.
The signature cupcakes include Lemon Drop (lemon cake with lemon buttercream), "Famous" Red Velvet (topped with cream cheese frosting and Chocolate Cream (chocolate cake filled with buttercream and topped with fudge frosting).
During Saturday's grand opening in Macon, employee Lauren Miller said the cupcakes are baked fresh daily.
While her favorite is the Chocolate Cream, Miller said red velvet has been the store's top seller.
