cupcakes 2MADISONVILLE, Ky. (12/6/19) — The community celebrated a ribbon cutting alongside Hopkins County Regional Chamber of Commerce at Dempsey Street Baking Co. Thursday afternoon.

The bakery, which opened six months ago, is housed in an old barber shop off Dempsey Street in Madisonville. They offer cupcakes and cookie sandwiches.

Owner Brandi Gunkel said it took a bit of work to refurbish the building, and she decided to keep some of the original decor including the vintage mirrors. Outside, the classic barber pole is still intact.

Inside, aromas of cinnamon, chocolate and pumpkin spice aroused the senses.

Chamber President Leslie Curneal welcomed the crowd and its newest member during the ceremony.

“Business has been great,” Gunkel said, adding the special for this month is red velvet cake, red peppermint and buckeyes while they last.

Gunkel’s love for baking began at a young age, which has been a family tradition.

“It’s been a hobby for a long time, and I put it into play,” she said. “I wanted to do this, and the timing had to be just right.”

Dempsey Street Baking Co. hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday. For more information, call (270) 871-3112.
