Flavor Selection

Flavors are the primary focus of my bakery. Being able to allow customers to express themselves through various flavor combinations is not only what sets us apart but also brings us together as a people, celebrating life's most memorable moments. Personally, my love for balancing flavors and texture has been a fun creative process, and hopefully you will think so also when  taste testing for your wedding or other special occasion.
Every element of your cake is made with: the highest quality ingredients, to bring forth the very BEST combinations.

Any cake flavor can easily be created either as a layered cake or cupcakes by increments of 12 (dozen only).  

Most of the flavors, within reason can be made as vegan also. Vegan is also might come as a bit higher in price because special ingredients are purchased. 
Please note: When reviewing the cake list below, if you see something that you want that's different, or want to add please let me know and as long as its within reason, I can create it for you.
