Third-generation baker Lorre Jacobs Daniel proved that she inherited the family's penchant for sweets when she won The Food Network's Cupcake Wars while representing the state of Georgia. After 20 years of baking in various shops around the U.S., she opened Southern Cosmopolitan Baking Company in Atlanta, where she crafts homemade goodies that pay homage to her mother's Chicago roots and her father's French-Quarter heritage.
Naturally, cupcakes are Daniel's specialty. Mainstays include red velvet, chocolate overload, citrus apricot, and coke classic, but the shop rotates weekly flavors too, such as bananas foster, strawberry lemonade, and campfire s'mores. The bakery's repertoire also includes cookies, cakes, and southern-style specialty sweets including caramel cinnamon rolls, peach cobbler, and bolo ties made of fondant. On another sweet note, Daniel also gives back to the local community by providing sponsorship to start-up bakeries and running an internship program with Fulton County Schools.
Nikki's Delightful Treats stocks its pantry with local and seasonal ingredients to flavor its cupcakes, cake pops, pies, and other confections. Buttercream frosting tops cupcakes in flavors such as carrot cake, marble, and alcohol-infused coconut rum, and a rainbow of cake pops double as marimba mallets in a pinch. Golden lattices embrace pies such as apple and blackberry, and flowers, ribbons, and other adornments decorate cakes.

Entering Marlam Cafe is like taking a step back into the good ol’ days. After guests slide into plush red booths, which are set atop shiny checkerboard floors, they peruse a menu of classic American favorites, such as burgers, wings, root-beer floats, and hand-spun milk shakes. The old-school vibe carries into the eatery’s weekly line-dancing lessons and karaoke nights, all of which furthers Marlam Cafe’s mission to serve up an experience to families that’s equally as entertaining as it is tasty.
Deliteful Events may have the word "lite" in its name, but its menus have plenty of opportunity for indulgence. Bakers decorate and layer cakes for occasions ranging from kids' birthdays to weddings, each with a huge number of flavor, filling, and icing options. Those range from the homey—applesauce cake and cream-cheese frosting, for instance—to intriguing gourmet blends such as white-chocolate banana cake. Served in a cozy cafe and at catered events, the savory side of the menu holds juicy sandwiches, classic salads, and comfort cuisine such as meatloaf.
The husband-and-wife team at Sister's Sweet Creations collaborates with fresh ingredients to hand-make cakes, pies, and confectionary specialties in dozens of gourmet flavors. The shop’s cake pops make mobile cake consumption a manageable undertaking, as each bouquet of frosted orbs arrives gift-wrapped and placed into a bag or box for easy carrying or pulling from a top hat. In addition to cookies and brownies, the team crafts gourmet cupcakes that display rotating flavor possibilities such as chocolate mint truffle or hot fudge sundae. Tiered and sheet cakes let hosts customize desserts to match any situation, from a five-level wedding cake to a full-sheet cake that conveys messages such as "Happy birthday" or "Sorry for trying to cut your other birthday cake with a blow-torch." To craft similarly imaginative baked gifts and edible works of art at home, patrons may inquire about upcoming classes.
