Ariel, the little mermaid birthday cake was amazing

Not only was the artwork amazing but the cake (white) was delicious. And of course, I grabbed a smiley face cookie when I picked it up! They can make those smiley face iced cookies in just about any shape you want as well.

Every time I go to conway I have to have at least half a dozen of the smileys or whatever specialty cookie for the month. This month is pumpkins, leaves, and acorns. So adorable and good! The best cookies I had in my lifetime

I've stopped by Ed's for various things over the years. We really like the strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting. Everyone is friendly and helpful.

Stopped here to get their famous apple fritters and cookies. They were a big hit and made the trip back to Dallas just fine. Stayed fresh for days.

A nice hometown bakery that's been around for years. The staff is friendly and eager to help. The cakes taste fresh and far superior than anything found in your average super market. Reasonable prices as well.

Everything here is plain, like it came out of a Wal-Mart bakery. Like so many places in Conway, this place lives off a reputation it built before they started to cut corners. Now it tastes like their frosting comes out of a pilsbury jar and the cakes are done by Duncan Hines. You're better off going to Cakes by Catie... More

We ordered a cake here on short notice. My friend who was going to make it lost her Dad and had to cancel. Ed's Bakery made the cake for my niece's wedding shower and it was perfect. Beautiful and delicious.

Love the iced sugar cookies at Ed's. They are known as smileys because they are decorated like smiley faces. Also a fan of the chocolate iced donut that is first glazed and then chocolate iced. And lastly, the sand tarts with chocolate on top are my favorite thing they make.

We lived in Conway for several years, and Ed's is hands down the best bakery anywhere around. It has a real hometown feel, consistently good baked goods and reasonable prices. Definitely worth a try.
