New Cakery Alert: Two Girls and a Whip In Downtown Memphis
Ed. Note: Contributor Michael Butler attended the Two Girls and A Whip cakery soft opening this past weekend, and he has all the info on this new cake shop downtown. By the way, a “whip” is just another word for whisk.
Have you heard Memphis has a new “cakery”? Yes, cakery, which I learned is a bakery that specializes in cupcakes and cakes. Yes, we love both of those!
Memphis’ newest cakery is called Two Girls and a Whip. Isn’t that such a catchy name? They are located at 363 South Front Street and opened for business on October 10, 2017.
Two Girls and a Whip is the brainchild of Caroline Dean, Mary Katherine Dunston, and Courtney Lollar. They specialize in traditional cupcakes – like the Amazing Strawberry – and cupcakes that are a bit more creative, like the Chocolate Chipotle and Turtle. Cupcakes are $2.50 each and feature Swiss Meringue buttercream frosting. I’m not a fan of frosting, but these were awesome.
To start off, they’ll have six “Basic Betties”: vanilla, chocolate, yellow, lemon, strawberry and carrot; plus they’ll offer three “Fancy Nancies”: Twix, Snickers and chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes. I imagine these flavors will change regularly, so be sure to check out their FB page or other social media to keep up.
If you’re into interior design, you’ll love the cupcake pan backdrop and aqua accents throughout. Also check out the chandelier.
Hours of operation:
Tuesday thru Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Custom cakes are by appointment only and you can call 901-472-CAKE to speak with someone. Two Girls and a Whip are currently perfecting their vegan and gluten free options and those will be available soon.
