Friday 13th lucky for sweets lovers

Kelli Marks got her start baking in the cake section of Barnes and Noble, where she read up on how to make her first creation: A four-tier buttercream cake from scratch for her grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary. After that, she said, “I was kind of hooked.” Now, on Jan. 13, a Friday — a day she chose purposely because she said it kind of fit the trouble she’s gone to to get the business open — her bakery, Sweet Love, will open at the Cantrell Heights Shopping Center, next door to Cantrell Gallery. Marks, 31, says her motto is “Pretty things taste better” and some of the pretty things she’s made — including a three-tier gold vintage button cake, featured in the magazine Weddings in Arkansas — can be seen on her website, sweetlovebakes.com, and facebook page, facebook.com/sweetlovebakes. Hours will be 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. On the day of the grand opening, she’ll offer a buy-one-get-one-free deal on cupcakes. The phone number 501-613-7780 and store address is 8210 Cantrell Road.

By the way — the gold buttons on the cake are edible.
