Frost Bake Shop Brings The Sweetness
Attention, dessert lovers: Frost Bake Shop is a must-try in Memphis and Collierville.
Frost Bake Shop in Laurelwood, which opened in 2013, was the first retail location for All American Sweets, aka, the bakery that provides cakes to restaurants around town. In 2016, they opened a Collierville location.
One wall of the bakery’s long, narrow space in Laurelwood is lined with tables and chairs. The other side has a store-length bakery case stuffed with cakes (available whole or by the slice), cookies, cupcakes and pies.
I went home with a gooey butter cookie that I inhaled before I could take an adequate picture of it, it was so delicious. Imagine a scenario in which eating a stick of butter was an acceptable thing to do, and that’s what this cookie tastes like – it’s creamy and melty and just the slightest bit salty.

I managed to make it home with my entire slice of Memphis Cream cake intact. It’s moist banana cake (think banana bread, but softer) layered with peanut butter cream and topped with a thin layer of chocolate ganache.
Frost also offers incredible decorated cakes for birthdays, weddings, grooms’ cakes, and more. They can really turn a big pastry into a work of art, like what you’d see on one of the many shows dedicated to cake on the Food Network. Frost provided scrumptious mini cupcakes for the I Love Memphis Blog’s 5th birthday party as well as the big awesome Memphis cake on display that day.
