White Oak Bakery! My Pal is the new owner!


It’s so difficult to keep a great secret!  My pal Beth has been working for quite some time to make something come together and it’s finally official!

Beth is the new owner of White Oak Bakery!!!

Located on Piney Green in Jacksonville NC, directly across the road from White Oak High School, it’s a full service bakery and lunch spot not to mention amazing custom cake orders!!!

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cup-Or-Cakes She and her partner Casey have been on a roll with amazing custom cake creations as Cup or Cakes with a portfolio on Facebook.  Follow/friend them to check out everything from a Duck Dynasty themed birthday cake, a Guinness bottle cap, a uniform cover, tinkerbell and more!  I don’t think folks knew they could find talent like this in a smaller town like ours.  Check out their page or, better yet, visit!  Tons of cupcakes, pastries, and cakes by the slice or to take home (a delightful coconut number almost went home with me today!).

Great spot to dine in for a lunch or enjoy their new patio area and expanded parking.  🙂

Hope you enjoy and tell Beth and Casey I sent you!
