Don't you dare mistake Leilani Shave Ice's frozen creations for snow cones. They're far more unique than that. Unlike snow cones, authentic Hawaiian shave?that's shave, not shaved?ice starts with a base of vanilla, macadamia, chocolate, mint chip, or strawberry ice cream. Upon that creamy foundation, staff pile ice that has been shaved down to a super-fine powder and sweeten it with a variety of tropical syrups in flavors such as blue raspberry, red watermelon, and orange dreamsicle. Even then, the delicious flavor layering isn't finished. Staff still need to add a final flourish in the form of toppings like condensed milk, chocolate or caramel syrup, or mini marshmallows.

Upon first glance, Le Roi French Bakery looks a bit like a castle. Roses and metal curlicues line the space, where bakers flit in and out of a pair of saloon doors. Named for the French word for king, this bakeshop’s confections are enchanting and majestic, like a towering mountain of Magic 8 balls. At the counter, a brightly lit case brims with classic European treats such as éclairs, napoleons, tarts, and parfaits. The scent of espresso wafts by as staffers froth fresh milk for lattes and cappuccinos. Like a fairy tale about princes and princesses, these details inspire daydreams as patrons leaf through albums stuffed with hundreds of custom-cake ideas, including tiered wedding cakes adorned with fondant flowers and round delights flanked with fruits, frostings, or ladyfingers.

Combining a longtime interest in baseball with a love for cooking, Doug-Out Cookies founder Doug Low pitches customers a tasty selection of cookies and other sweet treats. “The Roster” features a variety of cookie flavors for clients to delightfully mix, match, and multiply into a double-dozen package that strikes out sweet-tooth sluggers faster than cake-battered curve balls. Cookie connoisseurs can step up to a plate of Super Star Triple Chocolates, peanut butters, oatmeal raisins, or "MVP" Milk Chocolate Chips (with or without the nuts). If that’s not enough to meet the dessert needs of cookie cravers, clients can stock their basement cookie-jar collection with amaretto chips, strawberry shortcakes, jalapeno sugar cookies, or Cambria Health Bars made with whole-wheat flour, flaxseed, oatmeal, walnuts, pecans, and coconut.

After a day at most salons, you might look better for a few weeks; after an hour at Permanent Beauty, you might look better for several years. That's because the center specializes in permanent-makeup applications, during which skin artists apply long-lasting, mineral-based pigment to eyes, lips, and brows. The pigments are designed to fade gradually over time so clients can change makeup styles and shades as they age, change their hair color, or disintegrate into their component Transformers. Ever conscious of sanitation, the technicians use brand-new materials and equipment on each client. The end result is that clients achieve the dramatic glances, full lips, and expressive brows they’ve always desired but couldn’t obtain without betraying Mr. Potato Head’s trust.

Owned and operated by CIA graduate and pastry expert Liz Scott, Crème de la Cake is not a walk-in retail bakery but an appointment-only bakeshop that specializes in custom cake creations. Liz crafts cupcakes with the same custom care she gives to seven-tiered solid-gold wedding cakes—and you get to order a dozen of these miniature artisan treats tailored to your specifications. Cake flavors include—but are not limited to—chocolate, vanilla bean, and red velvet, as well as more-Proustian flavors such as love, bittersweet summer flings, and lost time. For décor, select a simple fondant flower, polka dots in colors of your choosing, or almost any other design that can be achieved with icing on a circular three-inch canvas. Finally, you can fill your custom cupcakes with flavors such as lemon curd or chocolate fudge for an extra $12 per dozen; further design aspects will raise the price accordingly. Chef Liz makes everything from scratch (and even makes the scratch from scratch) using only fresh, locally available ingredients that are often organic and always of the highest quality.
