This episode of the Alexander County EDC’s “Business Spotlight” features Three Forks Cakes, located at 2276 Three Forks Church Road in Taylorsville. Gary Herman, Small Business Development Coordinator, interviews the business owner, April Jenkins.
Jenkins said the popular business actually began as a hobby in 2006, baking cakes for family and friends, but as it grew, she opened for business in 2008.
“It’s a lot bigger operation than I ever imagined,” Jenkins said.
The business grew so much, she had to have a building constructed beside her house.
She does decorative cakes for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, etc., but she also does “home style” cakes and cupcakes.
Depending on the time of year, demand can be great, so Jenkins encourages customers to get on her calendar as soon as they know the event date.
“My husband (Joel) and I were both born and raised here,” she said. “I try to support the small businesses here in Alexander County.”
