The Best Bakery In The World!

This is hands down the best bakery IN THE WORLD! The cake is BEYOND amazing! My top favorite would be poppy seed lemon and banana cake.... I'm drooling thinking about it! Not to mention all the other AMAZING goodies!

When you are celebrating a special occasion or just need a little pick-me-up treat, this is the place to come! I shop here for colleague birthday celebrations because they have something for everyone, even gluten-free coworkers.

This is my favorite place to go when you need a dessert for a special occasion. They are pricey, but so worth it. My personal favorite is the lemon blueberry cream pie or the snicker doodle cookies, but haven't ever had anything bad. They will do special orders and help you with how big a cake you will need.

This bakery knows how to cater to people with a sweet tooth. Lots of wonderful things here. The line of customers is always bustling with people eager to get their fix. I think their carrot cake is among the best things they make. I wish they had more "healthy" options but maybe that's a dumb request for a dessert bakery.

This bakery is one of the best I've ever been to. The employees are friendly, the atmosphere is adorable, and the food is absolutely delicious! It's not the cheapest place, but the food is completely worth the prices. The peanut butter pie is to die for, and so are their cupcakes!

Simply the best buttermilk frosting chocolate cake I have ever tasted (and I have tasted a lot of them in my 70+ years of life. Lots of other goodies too that I am sure are above average too. But definitely try the chocolate cake!

Sooo much to choice from, I ordered 50.00 worth of goodies to take home, I asked for the most popular things, I think I liked the toasted coconut cake slice the best. But its all good theres something for everyone.
