Satisfy your sweet tooth at a new bakery in The Grove. Sweetfixx, located at 4420 Manchester Ave., opened July 29, and is serving up sweet treats.

Owner Katina Mims described her cake pops, candy apples and cupcakes as “old-fashioned homemade desserts with a more contemporary look and feel.”

Mims, a self-taught baker, ran her business out of her home for the past four years until she decided it was time to expand.

“I was outgrowing the home, and since I had a customer base I decided to open the brick-and-mortar location,” Mims said. “I didn’t want anything massive, but I wanted something bigger than the home.”

She describes the 600-square-foot, boutique-like space as “cute, quaint and kind of swanky.” Highly stylized treats are displayed on clear acrylic shelves. “I wanted the desserts to speak for themselves,” she said.

Mims’ social media accounts feature a wide array of too-pretty-to-eat desserts and custom cakes. The shop regularly sells cupcakes, cake pops, candy apples and chocolate-covered Oreos, but the colors and themes will change each week.

Sweetfixx is open Wednesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
