We offer cakes for all occasions including birthdays, baby and bridal showers, corporate events, holidays, and any other event you can imagine. No matter what event you’re planning, we can help create a beautiful and custom cake that will taste as good as it looks. Please contact us by phone with at least 7-10 days notice to place an order, or by email with at least 2 weeks notice to receive a price quote.

Wedding Cakes

We make wedding cakes for as big or small as you may be having. We would love for you to call our office to set up a time to come in and meet with someone about designing a cake for your special day. We will give you our portfolio to view the beautiful cakes we’ve made in the past, go over our pricing in more detail, and provide samples for you to taste some of our many cake flavors. For more information please check out our FAQ page.

Delicious Cupcakes

Cupcakes are available for walk in purchase on certain days based on our volume of work. Please call our office for more accurate information. We also offer yummy cupcakes by custom order in all the flavors listed on our flavor page. Cupcakes are also available with custom design work, but are slightly more limited because they are much smaller than regular cakes.

Cake Pops

We make our perfect little cake pop bites by custom order in gold, chocolate or red velvet cake flavors. They come dipped in white or milk chocolate, and covered in any of the assorted toppings listed at the bottom of our flavors page. If your interested in custom cake pops please contact us by phone.


We do offer a delivery service for all cakes with an added fee depending on where it’s going to. All cakes are available to be picked up during business hours for no extra charge. To save yourself the hassle of transporting a cake, please feel free to contact us for more information. This service is highly recommended for all tiered cakes. Some places do have a minimum size requirement due to distance.
