Alicia Eisenmann fell in love with cake decorating while attending Kendall College, and she now focuses that interest on running Delish Cakes. She and her staff churn out custom cakes, cupcakes, and cookies for every occasion, from baby showers and quinceañeras to weddings and anniversaries. Based on your ideas, they craft sweets from flavors such as red velvet, strawberry, and pistachio, stuffing them with fresh raspberries, crushed pineapple, vanilla mousse, or lemon curd; among the available finishings are fondant, whipped cream, and chocolate buttercream. In compliance with the 27th Amendment, the team discloses cupcake-making knowledge during onsite classes and parties.
When a restaurant makes eight different kinds of French toast, you know they take breakfast seriously. Such is the case at Brunch Café, a local, family-run chain that serves up breakfast and lunch every day. Pancakes share the menu with European crepes and egg and sausage breakfast sliders—which put a daytime spin on a late night snack. Lunch fare includes paninis, wraps, and burgers, along with classic cobb and chopped salads. Mimosas and bloody marys are perfect for sipping alongside these meals or for toasting the invention of the waffle iron.
The artists in the kitchen at Delicity Cakes build landscapes and sculptures out of flour, butter, and sugar, making tropical paradises, ribbon-strewn towers, and bassinet replicas to help customers celebrate a range of occasions. The team aims to enhance events with detailed visuals, although the impressive imagery shouldn't prevent guests from cutting in, as the custom multilayered cakes feature tasty flavor combinations such as yellow cake with mango curd and strawberry mousse. Cakes can come with fondant icing or be shrunken down with a laser and renamed cupcakes. The bakery also slings specialty cookies and pastries.
