Whether with a Super Mario Kart–themed birthday cake, a holiday cake shaped like a pile of wrapped gifts, or cupcakes with perfectly swirled buttercream frosting, the bakers at Let Them Eat Cake turn dessert into edible works of art.

They also ship cakes to customers outside of the area, ensuring their safety with layers of bubble packaging, plastic wrap, and a bodyguard who rides along inside the box.
The lavender-and-green-tiled wall at Purple Tree Yogurt is certainly eye catching, but customers gravitate toward it for a different reason. It holds the pumps that they use to self-serve the shop's selection of natural frozen yogurt. After swirling any combination of flavors, customers then bedeck their creations with toppings such as nuts, chocolate chips, jellybeans, cereal, and fresh fruit.
Almost 100 years ago, Peter J. Oberweis found himself with a surplus of milk. Rather than throw it out or freeze it into popsicles, Peter began selling it to his neighbors, an endeavor that was so popular that he began a milk-delivery service in 1927. Fast-forward to today, and Oberweis Dairy still delivers glass bottles of creamy milk to doorsteps. The small family-owned dairies that produce milk exclusively for Oberweis pledge never to use artificial growth hormones, therefore imbuing craft cheeses, super-premium ice cream, and yogurt with fresh, unobstructed taste. Oberweis partners with other like-minded companies to deliver such items as certified-humane Phil’s Fresh Eggs, Chuckanut Bay Foods cheesecake, and Connie’s Pizza to homes or to sell them at the company’s various retail locations.
