MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Shelby County restaurant environmentalists were sweet on bakeries, awarding two of them our High Score during a week in which no restaurant rated below an 85 on its health inspection.

Pat-A-Cake's Bake Shop, 9200 Chimneyrock Blvd. in Cordova, TN, earned a 98 on its Dec. 31 inspection.

The shop's specialty is custom cakes, but it also sports an ice creamery and made-from-scratch cupcakes.

Its signature cupcake: a sweet potato cupcake with cream cheese icing and nutmeg sprinkles.

Grandma's Desserts, Etc., 3108 Park Ave. in Orange Mound, also earned a 98 on its Dec. 30 inspection.

Elnora Johnson bakes her late mother's 50-year-old sweet potato pie recipe and other delights, not only for individual customers but also for some of the Mid-South's top restaurants.

"We make (the sweet potato pie) for Cozy Corner Bar-B-Q. They get our pies every week," Johnson said. "Miss Cordelia's sells our German chocolate cake and our carrot cakes, so we do that every week."
