You may have known them as Sweetly Scrumptious but with some major changes they have rebranded themselves as River City Sweet Shop. Last year they moved from their Normandie shopping center spot to the Prairie Village Shopping Center at southwest corner of 13th and Woodlawn.

I’ve never been inside before and one of the needs they are catering to on top of being a made-to-order bakery is having plenty of baked goods available in advance. Especially for people like me who always wait until the last minute to buy things like flowers for Mother’s Day or gifts for Christmas, they have cookies, cupcakes, cake balls and more readily prepared for you to pick up and go. Of course you can always order your things in advance if you like to be proactive and well prepared. Or there’s always the option of swinging in for a daytime snack.
We stopped by for one of their little events they were throwing. The kids were able to decorate little sugar cookies. The cookies and icing were all ready to go when we arrived. Seriously, what kid doesn’t like to decorate cookies? You’ll want to follow them on Facebook to see when these events are. The sugar cookies were free with any purchase from Espresso Self which is definitely a future review coming soon!
Also every Friday they are giving away a free cake to the business of your choice. Last time I checked the most recent contest had just 25 entries so your odds of winning are so much better than many Facebook contest I’ve seen.
And while we were there, we had to try some of their cupcakes and cake balls. Everybody had their favorites. Whether you love the rich chocolate cupcakes or the lighter flavors, there were plenty of options there. The kids loved the strawberry champagne cupcake and the Hershey’s one. We also had the orange chocolate as well as the lemon which was to die for….not literally but close enough. I’m a big fan of lemony desserts and it was so light and vibrant. The cake balls were gone like in sixty seconds by my colleagues. They make for good bribery tools if you need something to get done.
If you’re curious, they have gluten-free and Keto-friendly baked goods as well.
And lastly since Tuesday was the four week mark for my daughter, we left with a delicious vanilla cake that we all dined on that evening. Nobody ate her face though, we couldn’t bring ourselves to do that.
We all had a great time at River City Sweet Shop. Most importantly, the kids had fun and loved the desserts so that’s always a big win for us finding things around town for them to enjoy while school is out.
Here’s their menu.
