Our bakery, located at 1121 Gum Branch Road, specializes in custom cake creations for all of life’s events. We are operating with minimal staff during COVID-19, but you can still stop in to pick up ready-to-go desserts like delicious gourmet cupcakes, dessert cakes, tea-cookies, and more, all made fresh daily in-house.  We also offer Curbside pickup, just give us a call when you’re in the parking lot and we’ll bring your order to your vehicle.  Wedding cake consultations and custom cake consultations can still be scheduled Tuesday-Thursday for phone or FB messenger appointments.
