The story behind our cakes

We pride ourselves on the quality of our cakes and know they’re second to none! But why?

They’re filled with quality ingredients, from our exclusive cake mix that you won’t find in any other market to our signature buttercream frosting made with a special vanilla extract. Our cakes are made in small batches resulting in fresher products. And all our cakes are handmade, right down to measuring ingredients by hand to ensure you always get the perfect cake.

Alleviate the stress – let us make your graduation party a success!

I can’t imagine all the things the parents of a high school senior must have on their minds! Your child is heading toward a major milestone in life, which can be scary and exciting all at the same time. Congratulations!

But before you get there, you’re busy paving the way with deposits for the dorm room, prom plans, the last basketball banquet, nagging about summer job applications… stressful!

To top it all off, I’m sure your spring “to-do” list around the house is growing with plans of an open house graduation party (is this snow going to melt so you can get a chance to sand and refinish the deck first?).

You need the convenience of a one-stop shop for graduation party planning. Don’t worry, we have you covered.

Did you hear? The Wedding Guys are back with their upscale wedding show in the Twin Cities, Unveiled. They host two each year – the first was February 10 and the next is on November 17. It’s an event you don’t want to miss!

On February 10, three of our talented pastry chefs participated in the first big wedding show of the season! Unveiled assembles the top experts of the wedding industry together to help brides and grooms gather as much info as possible about planning their big day. Cakes, catering, dresses, music, and resorts: the vendor list is filled with expertise!

Graduations, weddings, first communions, confirmations, baby showers, bridal showers… the list goes on and on. So many different occasions are celebrated perfectly with cake, and who doesn’t love a delicious cake?

We pride ourselves on our scrumptious cake and know that our cake is light-years better than our competition. We recently asked some of our seasoned bakery staff: “What makes our cake different from our competitors?” We dug down deep and came up with all the reasons why our cake is awesome!

Have you noticed how many cake-based reality television shows there are today? Ace of Cakes, Fabulous Cakes and Cake Boss are a few that quickly come to mind.

When I’m flipping through the channels and come across one of these shows I usually set the remote down. Probably not surprising given the fact that I’m a category manager for our bakeries. These shows open our eyes to the amazing things that cake decorators and pastry chefs can do. But it’s not just on television!
