Nestled in a small shopping center on E. Kings Hwy is one of Shreveport’s best kept secrets, Prep Cakes Bakery!
As you walk through the doors into a spacious suite with a black and white checkered floor and light pink walls, you’ll instantly be greeted by the cheerful owner, Turaeza Lopez, or a member of her staff. The open concept kitchen allows you to watch the staff prepare all items on the menu. A ton of delicious, guilt-free desserts will immediately catch your eye in a large freezer display. Healthy sandwich options and even meal preps by local company, Prepped Up Meals, can be found in another nearby freezer.
Prep Cakes truly has something for everyone! Sugar free. Gluten free. Vegan. This local bakery prides itself on offering something for all dietary needs. It’s the perfect place to get that sweet tooth fix without killing your diet. Many of their items can also serve as meal replacements, with added protein.

Their plethora of treats are absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked to remain soft but still offer that satisfaction of a crunch.
Prep Cake’s BLT on an Italian bun has to be one of my favorites. The staff doesn’t skimp on the bacon and the tomatoes are some of the freshest I have ever eaten! The mayo and extra touches top it off! That doesn’t even mention the size of the sandwich and tasty, perfectly cooked and seasoned Italian bun. It’s truly heaven in your mouth!
The bakery’s protein cake drops are another favored dessert by locals. The coating gives customers that perfect crunch with a delicious, soft cake inside. They also offer cinnamon rolls, custom cakes, avocado salads, no-carb pita chips, cupcakes, no bake cheese cakes, and tons more!
Whether you’re looking for a sugar-free cake for your loved one, guilt-free desserts that won’t shatter your macro count, or a healthier option for lunch, I encourage you to explore this hidden gem right here in our backyard.
What I think is something that truly sets Prep Cakes Bakery apart from others is their commitment to giving back as well! Their “Pay It Forward” program affords free meals to local healthcare workers, first responders, veterans, and military.
