Bear City Fudge Company and Ali Smith Cake Design open second Location on Trent Road!

When I heard that Ali Smith Cake Design and Bear City Fudge Company have opened a second location on Trent Road, I had to stop by to learn more!

I visited Kelly Whitley, owner of Bear City Fudge Company, at the Downtown New Bern location to learn about her merger with Ali Smith, owner of Ali Smith Cake Design.

I met Ali Smith at the New Bern Farmers Market last year and was very impressed with her large variety of elegant cakes. Ali teamed up with Kelly at Bear City Fudge Company in February 2012. Working together, both businesses have taken off and decided to open another shop where Cooper’s New Orleans Snowballs was located on Trent Road when Cooper’s moved to Bear Plaza.

Kelly delivers her fudge to the new location and Ali delivers her cakes to the Downtown location on a daily basis. Ali also delivers to clients throughout Eastern North Carolina to include Jacksonville to the beaches.

If you have a sweet tooth or are looking for a special gift, I’m sure you’ll find what you’re looking for at both locations!

Enjoy the large variety of unique sweet treats to include: chocolate covered pretzels, delicious fudge (chewy praline, a variety of chocolate fudges, Heath English toffee, orange cream, vanilla, and many more), Ali Smith Cakes custom cakes to celebrate all occasions (graduation, birthday, retirement, wedding, etc.), Jelly Belly beans, chocolate, taffy, and plenty more types of confections!

They also have neat gifts, lip balms, souvenirs, party favors, stationery, and much more!

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
