Starry Nights is a family owned and operated catering company that hand-makes its all-natural cakes from scratch, using only whole ingredients free of shortening, substitutes, and artificial flavors. Choose one of two European bakery–style classic cakes to please your choice of chocoholic or citrus stalker: the signature chocolate-truffle cake, which features layers of rich fudge cake fused together with a Belgian-chocolate mousse, or the elegant lemon cake, a vanilla chiffon cake stuffed with raspberry jam and a homemade lemon-mousse filling tucked cozily under tart lemon curd. Each of the nine-inch cakes will be covered in a vanilla buttercream and meticulously decorated to an elegant finish by Starry Nights' professional confectioners, ensuring a beautiful and scrumptious treat to bring to a staff soiree, whimsical wedding shower, or vaudevillian slapstick cake fight. Experience a chocolate buttercream covering for a $5 additional fee, or upgrade to a custom inscription for just $1 more (no custom décor).

Although most chefs have their own unique style of peeling, dicing, and julienning veggies, they all have one thing in common: they each require precise, sharp knives. At Excalibur Cutlery and Gifts, the staff ensures that tools remain as close to their factory condition as possible. During sharpening services, a water-cooled belt system and buffing wheels restore a piercing blade while removing a minimal amount of steel. They can sharpen kitchen, pocket, and hunting knives, as well as dull scissors and razors.
The shop also stocks premium models of nearly every edge they sharpen. The cutlery department stocks German-made Wusthof and Henckels, Swiss-made Forschner, and Oregon-grown Kershaw knives. Ideal for camping trips, pocket knives come in both blade and multitool varieties. More genteel wares include manicure sets and old-fashioned shaving kits. Excalibur also boasts a collection of swords for the collector or CEO whose business suit needs extra panache.
