Have your cake and eat it, too: The newly launched Sliced. Cake Bar offers homemade cake by the slice, buttercream shots and cake flights (like a beer flight, but with cake).
Co-owners Megan and Rock Watson got the idea after visiting a popular Dallas cake bar. Only Rock thought the sweet treats couldn’t hold a candle to his wife’s (she’s been making cakes for various events for 15 years). With use of a bakery space from a friend with Craft Cville, they were able to bring Sliced. to life.
Six flavors are on the Sliced. menu: lemon, strawberry, confetti, chocolate with chocolate icing, chocolate salted caramel and carrot cake, all made with organic ingredients. For a cake flight, customers can choose three sample-sized flavors. The Watsons plan to experiment with local booze in their buttercream shots, too.
Sliced. debuted at Early Mountain Vineyards on July 29. The lemon and chocolate salted caramel cakes were fan favorites—Rock says they sold out of both.
The Watsons hope to bring their concept to local markets and will post upcoming dates and locations on Sliced.’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
Eventually they hope to open a brick-and-mortar store and hire teenagers who are in the foster-care system or are at-risk as part of an internship program that teaches them about the bakery business. The couple has fostered and adopted children themselves.
“This is an opportunity for us to take something that we love doing and teach it and show it to others,” Megan says. Icing on the cake.
