Dawn has been like that for a long time but she is getting worse with her cocky attitude. I know if it was my business she would be gone.

I know exactly who and what you're talking about. She has a nasty attitude towards everyone! She is def not an asset to Shirley. Is she scared of her or what? I won't go back anymore and I used to by my daughters cakes there as well as cookies for school. Not anymore though.

Shirley's is absolutely disgusting. I bought a cake from there last year, and it weighed at least 10 pounds. It was apparently loaded with lard or Crisco or whatever. Absolutely disgusting. We threw the thing away and swore we would never buy anything from there again. Horrible.

It's sad that Shirley has bn in business so long and she's letting that one girl ruin her business. She needs to find another job because her attitude has tainted the entire bakery.

I went in today and there was a much better atmosphere. Maybe the problem or problems are gone. Women in there today were nice.

Went to Shirley's this week for the first time in a while. Much better atmosphere since Dawn was fired. The business should be much better without her.

I would agree with you. Sam's has the best tasting cakes in Jackson. Throw in the low price and you are just crazy to pay more than $20 for a cake anywhere else that will not taste near as good.

Fyi Dawn did not get fired, she quit.. she worked there for over 15 years but more than likely got fed up with the BS that goes on there.. you people only saw her attitude but have no clue what caused it.. I'm sure you've had to deal with lazy ass people and constant drama at work at some point. Shirley needs to learn how to treat employees and then and only then will she have a great staff. Her cakes are disgusting and way over priced anyway!!
SHIRLEY'S SUCKS!

Bottom line Shirley does NOT know how to treat anybody unless she likes you. Her cakes are AWFUL!! They are dry and taste like they are a month old! And I know for a FACT if health dept showed up unexpected she would be shut down!!!

I have been going to Shirley's for several years now and I absolutely love their cakes.I have never had a problem with them being dry.I live near Brownsville and always stop by their when I am in town.I bet some of these negative comments are being made by the comptition or possibly a "disgruntled employee" who I will not name.

Sorry jacksonmon but dawn did get fired.From what I understand Dawn gave Shirley an ultimatum,I am not exactly sure what was involved but you don't give your employer an ultimatum and not expect consequences.I know Dawn and she can be a real b---h.

As a child, I would go with my mother to get our baking goods from Roe's Bakery, which is now Shirley's Bakery. I don't know what has happened in the past few years, but the cakes are too dry. The last two cakes I bought were so dry, people were almost choking while trying to swallow. The biggest disappointment was the cake I got for my mother's 90th birthday. It was so beautiful on the outside, but so disappointing when we tried to eat it. It is hard to believe that the bakery doesn't know there is a problem with the quality of their products.

FYI for you all - it's none of your damn business if she quit or if she was fired but take it from someone who knows for a fact - DAWN QUIT! And is doing mighty fine running her own business now - Shirley'sLoss!!! There was too much petty bullshit and "favoring" goin on at that establishment and for that Shirley lost the best decorator she had and most of her business! Y'all can sit here and talk as much shit as you want but we all know the truth........next time you want to post about someone being rude and a subject you know nothing about check yourself in the mirror!! I used to love Shirley's as a kid but refuse to buy anything there anymore because of the awful service that is still employed there and the not so up to par cakes! I have a feeling i know exactly who is talking shit and its not "a disgruntled employee" but friends and/or family of some butt hurt bitches - Sorry to bust y'all's bubble but have a nice day!!
