This month we put the business spotlight on WatertownFirst member April’s Cake Shop. April Johnson first opened April’s Cake Shop in July of 2011. April has successfully brought new life downtown with her many flavors of cupcakes baked fresh from scratch. You can’t buy happiness but you can buy cupcakes and that is kind of the same thing at April’s Cake Shop. Inspired by her love of baking, and motivated to open her store front shop opposite of “Peanut Park” located in Downtown Watertown.

Born and raised in Watertown, April has been a nurse for over 20 years gaining leadership skills and compassion for others. Watertown DBA presented April’s Cake Shop the business of the year award for 2015. April herself earned the Honorary First Citizen Award presented by Mayor Joseph M. Butler Jr. last February.

April is also the newest board member of WatertownFirst with the role of membership director. April states she is happy to be a part of any event that gets businesses working together for the sake of the community.
