Gia’s Cakes Bakery Boutique is opening in early June in the former Indie Candy location on Church Street in Crestline.
Owner Gia McCollister has been baking wedding and birthday cakes from scratch by appointment for years. The Venezuela native learned baking from her family growing up and lived in New York and London before moving to Birmingham.
Gia’s will sell cupcakes, layer cakes, wedding cakes, birthday cakes and a line of bonbons.
“We will also make cakes like your grandmothers used to make but you don’t find anymore, like a Lane Cake,” McCollister said. She also plans to use more unusual ingredients like dulce de leche in some of her cakes.
Gia’s Cakes hours will be Monday- Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The storefront is located at 76 Church Street and can be reached at 243-2303. Visit their facebook page or giascakes.com for the latest updates on their opening.
