“Better than expected!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went in here at close on Sunday to order a custom birthday cake for Wednesday pick up and they came through. We did the 10-12" round and it could have served 25, it was so dense and heavy. It felt like it weighed 25 lbs. Their red velvet is to DIE for and so moist it tasted just as wonderful as we nibbled on it over the next 3 days. The custom design was just what we asked for and so impressive.

“Buttercream at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Always iso a good cupcake without cream cheese icing...This shop had a tasty version with a verry delicious cake...usually the 2 don't happen together. The staff was lovely and it looks as if they do beautiful cakes as well

“The "Man Cookie" is a must! They have more than cakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

YUM!!! They have beautiful cakes in the window and on display, but what I reccommend is stopping in for their cupcakes, cookies and other delectable treats! I tried their chocolate cupcake with dark chocolate ganache, which was delicious, and their "cake pop" (which is more of a small chocolate mousse and cake tart-shaped creation on a stick that tastes oh so fudgy and scrumptious!!).

But if I had to recommend just one thing, it would totally be the "Man Cookie" - picture two soft and heavenly chocolate chip cookies FIVE INCHES IN DIAMETER glued together with a thin layer of chocolate fudge. Oh my god!!!! It is beyond sinfully good!!
