Debra Yeager and Julie Alexander opened Lush Desserts on March 17. The wholesale catering service specializes in alcohol-infused cakes, cupcakes, brownies, cookies and pies.

Operating from their homes, Yeager said the most popular items are margarita cupcakes, amaretto white chocolate cake and Guinness brownies. Yeager said nonalcoholic versions are available for nearly every menu item. Mini cupcakes are $15 per dozen, while regular cupcakes by the dozen and full-size cakes are $30, Yeager said. Yeager and Alexander offer free delivery in Springfield locations and are pursuing a partnership for placement with Harter House. Phone: (417) 818-8582.
