Hello Elizabeth H, Thank you so much for inviting us to your family celebrations. The Chunky Carrot cake has been with us since Day 1, and a personal favorite. Cupcake varieties just seem to multiply, and molasses Crinkles are popular year 'round. We just celebrated...More

It is hard to go here and not buy up half the place. I love so many things but the banana cake is my favorite!!! Everything here is made fresh daily... they have vegan and GF options so you can get something for everyone. If...you are craving it, you can buy a frosting shot or shot of cookie dough, made without eggs. The prices are good especially for the quality of goods. Grab a number when you walk in the door. If you need a cake last minute call them in the AM to see what is in the case then buy it over the phone to pick up later... you might not get your favorite but it will be delicious.More

We stopped here to pick up desserts for dinner as well as for our walk in town. All of the desserts are fantastic but the icing really sets everything apart. We also had a special treat “homemade ice cream sandwiches”, that they make during the...summer months.More

Cute place, for baked goods and simple cards and gifts. i didn't care for the Calling numbers. I just wanted to buy something and had to wait for my number to be called. COnsidered walking out rather than waiting.
