Alexis Fussell transitioned from being a cosmetologist to a confectionary artist. She recently opened Cake Bar by Alexis at Northbridge Plaza, 1670 Old Towne Road in West Ashley. The shop sells retail sweets, teaches cooking classes, bakes custom cakes and pastries, and hosts birthday parties and corporate team-building cooking activities.

Alexis gained a love of baking as a child with an Easy Bake Oven. She started her baking business out of her home, often working all night to be able to deliver the orders the next day. She became a fan of the Food Network baking competitions and told herself, “I can do better than that!”

Cake Bar by Alexis offers a wide variety of cupcakes, cake slices, Charleston chewies, strawberry shortcake in a jar, and premium coffee. It also sells tumblers, cups, baking utensils, and apparel. Cake customers may send in design photos to CakeBarByAlexis@gmail.com. She includes custom aprons for the birthday parties, corporate team-building and baking lessons.

The shop is very inviting, with bold pink-and-black paint and a glitter wall. The hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 8 pm and Sunday from noon to 5 pm. Parties and cooking classes must be scheduled at least a week in advance.
