Friday Feature - The Cake Lady

The Cake Lady. The name alone makes me feel warm and welcome. The owner, Michelle, is as nice as they come. Always ready to great you with a smile as she walks out from the back room, where she has been baking or decorating, when she hears you enter. She makes the most BEAUTIFUL cookies you have ever seen. Today when I went in, she had ice cream cone and flower shaped ones. (My girls go nuts over the pink flowers, while my son always eyes the BIG monster cookies!!) Her counter is also filled with muffins, cupcakes, biscotti, and candy.

Didn't I tell you her cookies were pretty!? She also makes cakes for any occasion. Is someone in your group at Maple Memories celebrating a birthday or having a baby!!?? What a great surprise to have a beautiful cake, cookie bouquet (these are DARLING), or diaper cake ready for her. Give Michelle a call at 620-241-9100 to place your order.

In addition to all of the great food items, "The Cake Lady" also carries gift items for everyone. Fashionable purses, monogrammed wallets, backpacks and water bottle holders for kids, jewelry, and KU and K-State items just to name a few. For those of you that have been to McPherson, you might recognize her building as the previous home of "The Old Muffin Factory". Fortunately for us, Michelle continues to stock the shelves of her store with the famous muffin mixes and pancake mixes from "The Old Muffin Factory." This pancake mix is a staple at my house!! Seriously, I ran out one day and made the kids pancakes out of Bisquick instead (not telling them). They each took a bite and looked up and me and said, "Mom, these pancakes don't taste very good!" TRUE STORY. You MUST pick up a bag when you are in town, or you can order it online at
