Onslow County’s Longest-Operating Family-Owned Bakery

In 2023, we’re celebrating 22 years in business.  We’re proudly serving Jacksonville NC and surrounding areas as Onslow County’s longest operating family-owned bakery.

Our bakery, now located at 1130 Western Blvd, 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.
