Q: What makes your bakery different?
A: Everything we bake is hand-made from scratch. We use high quality all natural ingredients and don't add any preservatives. You won't find any high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils in our kitchen either. Also, we love making unique designs and custom dessert bars for your special event. Anything from matching colors to your themed party to adding edible photos to any treat and packaging them with your own custom label for the perfect wedding or party favor. Our fondant covered cakes are made using our own house-made Marshmallow Fondant which is much tastier than commercial made brands.
We also offer Gluten Free*, Whole Grain and Non Dairy Vegan items for those who need allergens avoided.
*We don't work in a Gluten Free kitchen, but we do everything we can to make sure that there is no gluten in our gluten free sweets.

Wedding Cakes, Cupcakes or Cookies?
A: Yes, we can make almost any flavor Gluten Free or Vegan for a special order. Although we do not work in a kitchen that is Gluten Free, we do our best to make sure these items are kept separate. We avoid gluten and dairy allergies as much as any other allergies we are made aware of if requested, but due to the environment that our sweets are made in our products can't be completely guaranteed allergen free.
If there is a known severe allergy of any of our customers, we don't recommend consumption.
