Buttercream and Moonbeams Bakery Opens in Jacksonville

Local business features creative cupcake flavors and deli-style lunch menu
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Aug. 8, 2014 - PRLog -- Buttercream and Moonbeams Bakery and Cupcake Shop, opened for business at its current location at 12200 San Jose Blvd. Suite 20 in Jacksonville in the Bealls Shopping Center in February.  The bakery is owned and operated by Mary Johnson, a Jacksonville resident. Buttercream and Moonbeams specializes in providing a unique selection of cupcakes, cakes, cookies, hand pies, dessert breads and other baked treats. The bakery also offers a daily lunch menu that includes soups, salads and sandwiches.

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," says Johnson. "I have invited a number of small Jacksonville entrepreneurs to display and sell their products in my store." Johnson is passionate about pointing out the impact that even small purchases can make on the local economy. A recent Facebook post reminded readers that diverting just $100 in spending from chain stores to local retailers would add $3 million annually to the Jacksonville economy, in addition to creating thousands of new jobs.
