Cakes by Bakin’ Bishop
Situated on Wears Valley Road, Cakes by Bakin’ Bishop is a little off the beaten path, but it is definitely worth a visit! Owned and operated by Shannon Bishop (aka the Bakin’ Bishop) this wonderful bakery is considered a hidden gem in the Smokies. This shop has built a cult following for its cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, brownies, and whoopie cushions. Visitors to Bakin’ Bishop will have the chance to design their own cupcake by mixing and matching various cake and icing flavors.
