The popular cake and candy supply store celebrates 35 years later this month.
Moving back into Fullerton was something of a homecoming for Cake & Wedding Cottage and its owner Tammy Mansberger. The shop has only been at 7076 Belair Road in Belair Beltway Plaza for about 6 months; before the 22-year-long run in Perry Hall near Silver Spring Road, though, they had a home in the same shopping center near the present location of Betty Brite Cleaners, Mansberger said. In fact Mansberger, a Perry Hall native, worked there as a teenager when her cousins Donna and Charlie Parrish ran the family business. “Our business began in a little house in Kingsville, at the corner of Belair and Sunshine Avenue … it looks like a cottage, it’s still there,” Mansberger said. “We’ve always been on the Belair Road corridor.

What would you like to see in this commercial vacancy.
A Verizon Wireless store has moved out of Belair Belway Village. Signs in the windows encourage customers to visit a nearby location on Martin Boulevard in Middle River. According to the website for MacKenzie Commercial Realty, 2,400 square feet of space are available in the shopping center and the rent for the space is negotiable. A new business would share the shopping center with Sleepy's, a matress store, The Goldfather gold buyers and GEICO. A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that the Goldfather had vacated the space next to the former Verizon Wireless. Patch regrets the error. What business do you think would be a good fit for this shopping center? Tell us in the comments.
