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 create personalized designs for cupcakes and cakes to suit any occasion, such as weddings, holidays, or birthday parties. 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.

Sunshine Bakery specializes in brightening dreary days with tastes far more delightful than the invasive ultraviolet spectrum. In a simply decorated, homey environment that relies less on bells and whistles and more on smells and deliciousles, the bakery’s staff of local pastriespeople whip up towering stacks of fresh cookies, gourmet cupcakes, and intricate event cakes every day. Choose from a variety of cupcake flavors for your six handheld delights (a $12 value). Classics such as red velvet and vanilla bean are available alongside orange poppyseed and the house specialty Andes mint, a white-based cupcake containing a flavorful burst of Andes chocolate-mint decadence. The iced cookies (a $10 value for six) are made fresh every day and iced in icing, not actual ice, which no longer exists outside of a small glacier cave in the Appalachian Mountains.
Stepping into The Sweet Tooth Fairy shop is like walking into another era: round tables and high-backed chairs surround an old-fashioned soda fountain, and oldies music plays softly nearby. Pale-blue walls and white crown molding stand behind a glass case full of sweet treats, which are baked daily and earned proprietor Megan Faulkner Brown two appearances on The Rachael Ray Show—one when she was still baking in her basement kitchen, and the next three years later, when her business had grown to nine locations.
Megan uses the "most ordinary" ingredients to whip up her extraordinary pastries, which include chocolate-chip and iced oatmeal cookies, brownies, lemon bars, and a variety of cupcakes and full-grown cakes. Signature cakebites don coats of chocolate or white chocolate flecked with sprinkles. Flavors of baked goods rotate monthly, with some favorites available on a daily basis. Gluten-free options are available, as are frosting shots designed to save time usually spent licking every drop of frosting off the top of a full-size cake.
Vanilla Bean Bakery’s ovens constantly churn out moist cupcakes, cakes, and cookies in a lengthy roster of flavors. Once the treats are cool, the bakery’s frosting artists decorate them using glaze, frosting, and fondant. With two to three days' notice, the team can create custom cakes to celebrate anything from baby showers to tax-filing day. Cupcakes come in luscious flavors such as red velvet, lemon, coconut, and peanut-butter cup. The bakery’s gallery of custom cupcakes showcases its decorators' diverse repertoire. They adorn dozens with prom proposals and fondant ghosts. In addition, bouquets of cake pops in flavors ranging from pink champagne to butter pecan brighten up parties, or patrons can opt for stickless arrays of cake truffles instead.
