In addition to their familial relation, Jo-Ann Morlando and her daughter Dominica Clementi share a passion for baking. Both women learned to bake as children, inspired by the old-world family recipes passed down through generations by their nonas, or grandmothers. And yet both saw baking as just a hobby—until, under the pressure of constant requests for treats from friends, they decided to open their own bakery. In 2004, Nona's Sweets was born. By 2012, it had been named a Talk of the Town for three straight years, a feat few 8-year-olds—Benjamin Button excepted—have accomplished. Amid the intimate earth-toned interiors and old photographs that line the walls of Nona's Sweets float the aromas of cafe dishes such as grilled paninis, breakfast sandwiches, and quiche. And yet the main attractions are still Jo-Ann and Dominica's whimsical desserts: the shop displays "shelves of intricate cakes––in the shapes of teakettles and wooden ships, among others," according to the Charlotte Observer. The mother-daughter team crafts these layered desserts with more than a dozen fillings and icings. They also conjure classic Italian sweets and pastries such as tiramisu, sfogliatelle, and cannoli. Their desserts frequently make appearances outside the shop, having featured in events such as the wedding of Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis and as the football in a dream of Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis.

Vivid green key-lime cupcakes, banana-pudding cakes topped with petite vanilla wafers, and towers of tiny cakes destined for a wedding: all might appear at once in the workshop behind the scenes of A Cupcakes World. Founder Tenika White carefully designs each one, constantly inventing new flavor blends to surprise her customers and customizing flavors and toppings to satisfy her clients’ personal orders. Each flavor is so meticulously imagined that the lines blur between original and specialty cupcakes; both categories together boast such varieties as peppermint patty, boozy pink champagne, and cherry almond vanilla. Tenika allows patrons to exercise their own culinary creativity by building their own cupcakes. To that end, myriad cake flavors, fillings of lemon curd and chocolate mousse, and spirals of frosting wait to be chosen, like kids in a pickup game of football or adults in a pickup game of financial advice.

It takes more than a pinch of creativity to own and manage a bakery, as Mina Gharibi can attest. As the mind behind A Touch of Frosting, Cupcakery, Mina relies on her self-taught skills to create cupcakes and cakes in flavors that range from the traditional (red velvet, carrot, and german chocolate) to the unabashedly innovative (cream soda, saffron cardamom). She tops these cakes with more than 12 flavors of frosting, which cover a territory that ranges from silky buttercream to effervescent champagne. Mina can add a custom touch to cake and cupcake orders whenever the occasion calls for it. She decorates her desserts with imaginative designs such as college logos, movie characters, and detailed instructions for holding a fork. Aside from these personalized creations, Mina specializes in southern pineapple-upside-down cakes, baklava, tiramisu, and cheesecakes.
