That distinct smell of flour and warm sugar floats out of Tasty Daylight Donuts’ kitchen each morning as bakers prepare fresh donuts for the day’s crowd. They bake more than 50 flavors each day, including blueberry cake and french cruller, and inject fillings such as banana cream or peach into the doughy circles for a sneak attack on taste buds. The bakers also let customers try their hand at combining flavors to make custom donuts. They also whip up a slate of fancy sweet treats in addition to donuts, such as apple fritters and fried cinnamon rolls that pair well with lattes and cappuccinos. The donut shop also gives back to the community by selling their treats to nonprofits for a discounted price.
CoolSwirl presents a wide spectrum of frozen-yogurt flavors packed with live, active cultures, protein, calcium, and vitamins. With nonfat, sugar-free, and sorbet options—all of which meet and exceed the National Yogurt Association’s requirements—customers can create their desired dessert piled with their favorite toppings. The option for patrons to add fresh blueberries, pineapple, and other fruits helps them to attain their daily fruit requirement much more efficiently than taking a half hour to clear out the vending machine’s supply of fruit snacks.
Gigi of Gigi's Cupcakes has been a self-starter since she was 15. That's when she began her first business?a cleaning company?because she "didn't want to work for anyone else." What began as a youthful whim blossomed into a business philosophy that, along with waiting tables and singing professionally, carried Gigi into her 30s.
Then, one day, her brother suggested making a career out of her passion for baking. That hobby had been born in her childhood, when Gigi often spent time with her mother and grandmother as they baked and bonded. Amid seemingly insurmountable financial constraints, Gigi unveiled Gigi's Cupcakes in 2008 and, within weeks, had more than covered her bills. Today, the franchise boasts more than 90 locations in the 25 states that haven't outlawed dessert.
Each bakery crafts its cupcakes daily with fresh ingredients, and updates the menu according to day of the week and season. Traditional summer flavors such as Scarlett's Red Velvet, chocolate-chip-cookie dough, and Birthday Surprise have recently met their culinary match in new mini cheesecakes that masquerade as cupcakes.
Marble Slab Creamery's dessert experts blend frozen treats with 67 sweet and savory mix-ins for a menu of dairy delights. Premium ice creams in nearly 70 flavors join forces with mix-ins in cups ($3.99+) or shakes ($4.59+), freezing brains and arresting thoughts of eating fiber-rich cereal boxes. Sugared favorites like vanilla, white chocolate, and Nutter Butter vie for the ice-cream scoop's attention alongside sugar-free options, low-fat yogurt, and fruit sorbet. The cakes—available in small ($19.99+), medium ($25.99+), and large ($29.99+)—combine blended ice cream and rich traditional cake. Swiss chocolate ice cream swirled with crunch bars and peanut-butter cups rests on a bed of chocolate cake to comprise the swiss cocoa Buttercup cake, which yodels at a very high octave when sliced.

Cakes By Mac, recently featured in Chattanooga CityScope magazine, serves up handheld confectionary creations, artfully crafted and accessorized with flavorful frosting. The doubly decadent chocolate cupcake topped with fudgy frosting rouses sleeping sweet teeth from cocoa-less slumbers, and strawberry cake tickles tonsils with a strawberry buttercream beret. Cupcake recipients can luxuriate in pillowy white cake blanketed by silky soft buttercream or boost vitamin C with lemon-infused cupcakes and a head of broccoli.
