First Cliquot Club, then Cake Eater. A Seward cafe space shutters again.

Emily and Taylor Harris posted a sad announcement about their Cake Eater Bakery and Cafe yesterday. As of July 10, they will be closing the business.

Emily Harris opened the bakery with Miel y Leche cupcake queen Sheela Namakkal in the spring of 2010. By winter, Namakkal moved to Chicago and Harris changed things up a bit, dropping the bakery's wedding and catering businesses, reducing the number of cupcakes sold, and adding various other baked goods and food items, including a modest breakfast menu.

Harris cited financial hardships and a desire to be more available for family members as the reason behind the decision.

On July 10, from 10-4, the Cake Eater owners and staff are asking supporters to join them for an open house goodbye party with free snacks, coffee, and iced tea.
