We make wedding cakes for any size celebration that you may be having. Give our office a call to set up a time to come in and meet with someone about designing a cake for your special day. You may peruse our portfolio to view the beautiful cakes we’ve made in the past; we will go over our pricing in more detail, and are happy to provide a selection of tasting samples of our many cake flavors. For more information please check out our FAQ page.

Delicious Cupcakes

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. Cupcakes are available for walk-in purchase on most Fridays and Saturdays based on our volume of work. Please call our office to check availability.

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 you are interested in custom cake pops please contact us by phone.


We do offer delivery service for all cakes with an added fee depending on the destination. All cakes are available to be picked up during business hours at 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 destinations do have a minimum size requirement due to distance.
