D'Lish Bakery hopes to attract students to new location
Shippensburg University graduate Alisha Smith and her business partners have brought back D’Lish Cake Bakery with new looks and a new menu. The local sweet spot, once located on King Street, is cranking out big variety with new flavors at its new location in the Shippensburg Shopping Center.
The bakery has a full calorie menu and, also, its newest venture, a menu featuring vegan and gluten-free treats thanks to its partnership with Betsy’s Bakery out of Camp Hill. D’Lish offers more than 160 cupcake flavors including weekly gourmet specialties like the Take 5 candy bar cupcake.
Smith and her partners opened D’Lish originally in July 2012 and remained in business until June 2013 when an agreement could not be reached between her and the property’s owner regarding expansion of the business.
She said the bakery’s previous location was not accessible enough for the local college community, but with the new offerings of free Wi-Fi, comfortable seating arrangements and a more convenient location, she and her partners hope to attract the student community.
Smith has aspirations of turning her and her partners’ small business into a franchise in the future. Being self-taught with no formal, classical training, she remains dedicated to the bakery and its continued success.
