Buttercream and Moonbeams is a second career for Johnson, who worked for 12 years as a nurse, prior to opening the bakery. "I've always worked in service-oriented industries, and before I became a nurse, I worked in bars and restaurants. Opening my own business has been a dream, and I'm happy to be able to open a shop here in Jacksonville."
Johnson likes to create cupcakes and treats that are slightly out-of-the ordinary. The bakery features a selection of cupcake flavors that changes daily, and includes PB & J, Lemon and Lavender, Banana Split, Chocolate Salted Caramel Pretzel, Vanilla Cream, Chocolate Bliss, Margarita, Apple Pie, Happiness, Triple Chocolate and others. Johnson updates the store's Facebook page daily with featured menu items.
The store also offers children's birthday parties, where children can frost and decorate their own cupcakes. Lunch options for children's parties are also available. Johnson says that she bakes items in small batches to control the quality of her treats, but that means that customers may not find a full dozen of their favorite item if they don't call ahead to place larger orders.
Opening the business in Jacksonville was just part of Johnson's goal. "I'm a big believer in supporting local businesses,"
