Amanda Oakleaf Cakes Is Moving from Winthrop to Boston, Becoming Oakleaf Cakes
It looks like a cake bakery just north of Boston is going to be moving to the city.
Eater Boston is reporting that Amanda Oakleaf Cakes is planning to move from its current home on Pauline Street in Winthrop to Westland Avenue near where the Back Bay and Fenway meet (and it will be called Oakleaf Cakes). The article mentions that the new location will offer a variety of cakes and baked goods as well as coffee and espresso, and it will also have cake decorating classes. It appears that a new bakery will move into the space that is being vacated by Amanda Oakleaf Cakes.
Amanda Oakleaf, who started her cake business five years ago, was a competitor on the Food Network Cake Challenge in 2010. Her bakery has also received a "Best Of Boston" award in Boston Magazine for its wedding cakes.
The new location of Oakleaf Cakes could be open by later this month or early next month, according to Eater Boston.
