Friessen Development and Van Buskirk Companies are thrilled to announce Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery will be opening in Marketplace at Lake Lorraine. Smallcakes will offer 250 flavors of gourmet cupcakes, over 60 flavors of cupcake-infused ice cream, and specialty cakes.


The specialty shop will be family owned and operated by Dannalee and Shawn Nordhagen along with their daughters, Ashlan and Jaden.  Smallcakes is a franchise; however, it is very owner driven as the Nordhagen family had the freedom to put their own flair on items such as the shop design.  They are very excited to bring this fun treat option to Sioux Falls and the surrounding communities.


 “We were first introduced to Smallcakes about 5 years ago and we never knew cupcakes and ice cream could taste SO good!” said Dannalee Nordhagen, “when we heard about the vision for Lake Lorraine and saw the plans, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce Smallcakes to the Sioux Falls market! We love the idea of having a place for people in Sioux Falls to live, work, shop, dine, stay, and play.”


Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery will offer 14 flavors of gourmet cupcakes daily and 12 different flavors of their cupcake-infused ice cream. Tasty treats are not the only thing you can expect. They have big plans for ladies’ night out events, cake decorating classes, fundraisers, and will be able to provide delivery service for weddings, corporate events, or parties.  They will take custom orders to put individual flairs on their treats and are excited for the opportunity to work together as a family. After all, living close to family is what brought them back to Sioux Falls.


Lake Lorraine Lifestyle Center is located just west of I-29 between 26th and 41st Street in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  Lake Lorraine is the place to Live, Dine, Work, Shop, Play and Stay. The development will feature a dedicated, interactive one-mile Lake Walk that will be available to the entire community to enjoy. Lake Lorraine is designed to give the residents and visitors an Adventure Every Day.
