WICHITA — There's blissful news for denizens of Old Town.
Angie and Johnny Vasquez are moving their Bliss-fullness Custom Cakes & Pastries from Tyler Plaza near Central and Tyler, where it opened last summer, to Old Town.
The shop will locate between Larkspur and Wasabi.
"We were eating lunch at Wasabi one day, and my husband was like, 'Let's go take a walk,'" Angie Vasquez says.
They saw that a space next door along with a loft above it were available.
"Basically, that was the selling point for us," Angie Vasquez says. "We can have a business and a family all at one place."
The couple has two toddlers and a 19-year-old, Johnny Jalali.
"My 19-year-old is kind of like a baking prodigy," Angie Vasquez says.
Bliss-fullness has cupcakes, cakes and pastries, such as croissants, which are made fresh daily.
"We are definitely going to go up on the pastries," Angie Vasquez says.
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
