Party planners at Maximum Events specialize in decking out dessert tables in delicious sweets personalized with eye-pleasing icing. A changing selection of cupcakes may include such tasty classics such as vanilla cake with buttercream frosting or chocolate cake with chocolate ganache. Unlike black velvet, which makes for a great bathrobe but tastes like fabric, the red-velvet cupcake makes for a poor bathrobe but delights diners with a rich red crumb and a velvety cap of cream cheese. Selecting a variety of inventive flavors such as the raspberry champagne or coconut-pineapple meringue treats taste buds to sweetness and the best kind of spice—variety.

Each day at BabyCakes Cupcakes at Mack's Bakery, the 12 cupcake flavors are different from the day before. These flavors are inventive plays on the expected, such as the Campfire S'mores, a double-chocolate cupcake with a graham-cracker crust and marshmallow frosting, or the Cup of Cocoa, topped with toasted marshmallows and perfect for people who don't want to drink their cocoa or freeze it into a slab. Although it started as a cupcake-only bakery, the staff has extended its offerings to include scones, cakes, donuts, and cookies.

Whether you're looking for a tiered, edible centerpiece or a plateful of pastry pals, Yummy's thoughtful menu includes confections for all occasions. Curl your tongue around a flavor-soaked slice of vanilla cake caressed with sweet, creamy frosting or wake up with a slice of orange-cranberry bread waiting for you in the shower. Fresh-out-of-the-oven sourdough begs for a thick smattering of chunky peanut butter. Breads start at $1.50, and cookies are $6 for a dozen. Yummy's also sells more-whimsical treats, including cupcakes on a stick and massive marshmallows doused in chocolate. Dorm rooms and slumber parties nationwide welcome the addition of the award-winning pepperoni rolls (four for $5, double-stuffed rolls at $2 each) in a variety of flavor combinations (spinach-feta, mozzarella, jalapeño-cheddar).
