“2nd Trip Here! Still Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We were back in town and decided to go pick up some cupcakes. These are the best cupcakes anywhere! I look forward to going here as soon as we get into town, and the people that own and run it are super nice and always have great conversation. Check it out if your in the area.

“Terrific Cinnamon Rolls!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Stopped by on our way home from vacation. Had a cinnamon roll and red velvet cupcake. BEST cinnamon roll I've every had! Beats Cinnabon by far. Great pricing and very nice staff!

“AWESOME!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

It was nice to see a bakery in PF. We have a tradition in our family that we set one night aside for a dessert night. We go to local bakeries, candy shops, etc and buy different desserts, bring them back to rental, divide them for each family member and sample.

Bakin' Bishop was wonderful. We got a gigantic cinnamon roll ($2.95), a big chocolate cupcake with raspberry icing ($3.25), a big red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing ($3.25) & mini brownie ($.99). All was delicious but my favorite was the choc & raspberry cupcake. You can add sugar crystals or decorative candy (extra fee) to your cupcake as well. Icing amount on top was enormous.

Upon entering the door we was greeted by a young lady behind the counter. She was very nice and bubbly. She explained how we could get our cupcakes and stepped aside while we drooled over the case. One of the owners came from out of the back and also greeted us. I asked if she was the owner and she said she was one of them & she had a partner. She chatted for a minute and went back working. We made our decision and on our way out of the door was told by both women thank you and have a nice day. For once a business that didn't make me feel like a tourist! Give this local non franchise bakery a try. You will not be disappointed.

“Forget Baskin Robbins! Make your vacation unique!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

On our all-adult vacation to Pigeon Forge, we elected to make a quick stop here for dessert because of the great reviews. Plus, they sell sugar!

This little bakery is quaint and cute. Its intimate atmosphere was welcoming and friendly. The cupcakes were a "create-your-own" kind of menu; you choose the cupcake flavor and icing flavor and Ms. Bishop works her magic. They even let us sample the icings just so we would leave with the perfect confection for our taste buds. Ms. Bishop and her "cake crew" were so friendly. I think the service was the icing on the cake (pun intended) plus the cupcakes were delicious!

What could make the experience better? Maybe a rope swing out back for everyone to practice their rope swinging skills! (Sorry! Couldn't resist! Inside joke for the Baking Bishop crew. Thanks for a SWEET visit!)

“Best cream cheese frosting!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Me and my fiancé stopped in this afternoon while we were on our weekend get away. These cupcakes are great, we purchased a variety: strawberry, vanilla and chocolate with a variety of icings including: buttercream, peanut butter, chocolate and the best cream cheese frosting that we have ever had. The little sugar decorations were a great touch to with a variety to choose from. We will definitely stop back in next time we are here!!!
