Red Velvet Sweet Shoppe


















1The Sweet Shoppe is endlessly inspiring. Emma has been baking up a storm! I'm so incredibly proud of her. The shop is styled like and old fashioned candy shop mixed with a 1960s housewife! Her treats are amazing. It's the only place in Springfield that serves (real) Bubble Tea and her Heath bar caramel apples and cupcakes are the yummiest! I'm just so happy to offer a cute local place for girlfriend time, mother-daughter dates and cute couples to share treats. It's a very happy spot and I'm proud to have it as a part of Red Velvet!

  • What is the address of the sweet shoppe? I have looked and can’t find it anywhere. I see it is in Springfield, which would make it a great place for me to stop in on a road trip! Thanks in advance!

  • this little (not so littl haha)shop is sooooo cute!love the style and the treats look delicious!

  • I love baking and actually want to go to a culinary school to open up a bakery one day. I alwasy wanted like a vintage themed thing and when i saw these pictures i almost cried of joy. This is beautiful and HUGE inspiration for me,. thank you so much. The bakery is BEAUTIFUL.

  • oh gosh i wish they had places like this is australia.. i so want to come over there for a visit!! maybe one i could convince the boyfriend to travel!! love it!!

  • wow. it is unbelievable. I love it so much . Thanks for your sharing. cool .great. I sure I’ll come back soon.

  • Hi!
    All i can say is woooww. Infact i am speechless. I am from Scotland and something like that here would be amazing and go down a storm. I love it. I am so happy looking at it!


  • Elsie, I’m curious as to why you call yours ‘the only “real” bubble tea in Springfield’. (I’m not from Springfield, so I don’t know what is there). I just know that bubble tea (or boba) comes in all forms, even in Taiwan, where it first originated. I have a bloggy friend who lives there & I’ve seen her post pictures of it in all flavors & combinations, from green tea with jelly stars, to lychee with black tapioca pearls, from frozen to liquid. There is no ‘one true’ bubble tea, so I wonder how you define “real”.

  • Nothing has been cheering me up quite as much as coming to your blog and seeing pictures of your store, family and cuteness.
    Thank you for brightening my day.

  • The shop is so cute and look at all the delicious treats. Emma looks sweet dressed up in 50’s gear.

  • one word. WOW.

    more words. However i am confused as to what BUBBLE TEA is?! looks intriguing.

  • It looks so lovely!

    I wish you weren’t so far away, I’d love to sit there with a bubble tea and a sketchbook!

  • It’s so nice to see the place with customers enjoying the treats. I’m sure Emma deserves to be successful! 🙂 Hope lots of people keep coming!

  • Emma, Emma, Emma…’re a superstar!

  • DYING OF CUTENESS! sooo amazing! what a beautiful shop, i wish i could visit!

    jessica, bubble tea is a drink that came from asia and it consists of “bubbles” (they are often called pearls though) of black tapioca sitting at the bottom of a slushy fruit or milky tea drink! there are endless combinations and sometimes it has jelly in it too!


  • Wow. The photography by Float Away Studios is superb, and makes me really wish I could see your store firsthand. I do have a pal who lives in Springfield, so I should make sure she pays you a visit.

  • I am flying to Kansas City in December and my sister and I plan on driving down to your shop before heading to her house in Kansas… I CAN’T WAIT!

    I am going to die of anticipation! 😀

  • everything looks delicious, I’d definitely spend many an hour their with my girlfriends (if I lived on the same continent 🙂 )x
