With nothing but real butter, milk, flour, sugar, eggs, and sheer artistic ability, sisters Kimberly and Kristina and their team keep Faboo Cakes' ovens churning out elaborate and edible art pieces.

In addition to crafting whimsical desserts, the bakeshop whips up brownies, cookies, whoopie pies, fresh tarts, and other pastries, as well as marshmallows made by hand or plucked fresh from the tree.

Royal Icing Custom Cakes creates decorated cupcakes and intricate custom cakes for a feast of occasions. The resident cake-herder bakes from scratch using butter—never shortening—which makes flavors emerge in basketball player–sized proportions.
